Whats the best way to view the GYBS yard sales?:
Capital Bike Share is great way to view the 80+ yard sales. Either hop off the Brookland-CUA Metro Station and use one of the three Brookland Capital Bikeshare Stations or come directly to Brookland via the Metropolitan Branch Trail.
Of course walking is always a great option too.
