The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recently launched the Landscape Architect’s Guide to Washington, D.C. The guide is online, free, and mobile-friendly. The purpose of the guide is to help visitors and locals explore historic, modern and contemporary landscapes in the D.C. Metro area. Brookland has 3 sites listed in the guide:
- The Franciscan Monastery on 14th and Quincy St. NE
- The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at Michigan Ave and John McCormack Rd. NE
- The McMillan Sand Filtration Site at 1st St, NW, between Michigan Ave and Channing St, NW, Washington, D.C.
Although I am not sure I consider the McMillan Site part of Brookland, it is great to see our neighborhood recognized in this guide.
