  • Pretty cool post. I knew the family that lived at 3839 Beecher Street in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Beecher Street was also notable for several other minor celebrities who lived there during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Ian MacKaye of Fugazi lived there as well as Henry Rollins who visited and hung out there. Connie Chung of Maury Povich and CBS fame lived there in the early 60’s when she worked at WTTG-TV (Fox 5 ). Elsie McGuire lived a few doors down, her father was a diplomat of some reknown. Her claim was the private tutoring and Spanish lessons she gave to Lady Bird Johnson.
