I'm not sure why the Old Soldier's Home and the Lincoln Cottage get a mention at all in this article about Brookland. The OSH is completely inaccesible from Brookland as the only gate opens on the Corner of Upshur NW and Rock Creek Church Rd NW which is firmly in PETWORTH, not Park View. In fact, the OSH and LC are more excessible by train or bus from the Petworth station, not Brookland. The only bus (H8) that would get you there is at least TWICE as long than a bus from either Petworth/Georgia Ave. or Ft. Totten. Clearly whomever wrote this has no clue and has never been to any of these neighborhoods. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.70.8.13 (talk) 14:12, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
