COVID Sights: Brooks Brothers Skips Town; Residents, Businesses Confront New World

Another sign of our COVID times pulled up over the weekend as large moving vans were filled with the remains of the Brooks Brothers store at 31st & M Streets NW. Its sign at 3077 M St. NW was removed.

At press time, Brooks Brothers did not respond to press inquiries. Landlord EastBanc declined to comment officially when contacted.

A few businesses remain open on M Street, such as Thunder Burger (takeout and delivery only), Moby Dick, America Eats (meals for the needy) and even Georgetown Tobacco.

Around the city and in the neighborhood, parks were closed for sports. Even the tennis courts were closed. Rose Park shut down March 28, although players were active at the Volta Park courts on Sunday, March 29.
