Via the Cleveland Park message board, a Porter Street resident warns:

“During the past several years, vehicles belonging to my wife and I were vandalized while parked behind our Porter Street house, on either Quebec Place or Rowland Place. On Halloween Eve in 2006, my wife’s car was egged pretty well…

And in 2007, my motorcycle got more of the same (despite being covered), damaging the paint and cracking the windshield (and resulting in a faint “burned omelet” smell when I rode it, no
matter how hard I cleaned it). Both times, it happened behind our house on Quebec Place — but if memory serves, others reported similar incidents elsewhere as well.

So this year, I’m parking elsewhere — downtown if need be. Just thought I’d remind folks in Cleveland Park that we do have a history of this taking place, and that you may want to take similar precautions on Friday night.”
