Mark Counselman, president of the Oakenshawe Improvement Association and a constituent of Clarke’s, agrees that the area continues to have problems with disruptive neighbors. Not all are Hopkins students: A garage on Brentwood Avenue often serves as an informal social club, with men drinking beer, carousing, and urinating in the alley, he says. On University Parkway a while back, a group of young people—not Hopkins students, he says—took to running from rooftop to rooftop during parties. But Counselman’s latest headache concerns his immediate neighbors on Oakenshaw Place. Students who hold frequent “unbelievably noisy” beer pong tournaments currently rent the place, he says. But Counselman is upset with the landlord, not the students. “If you’re going to allow beer pong tournaments in your rowhouse,” he says, “you’re going to have to invest in some sound-deadening, because kids are gonna be kids.” Counselman says he’s made midnight phone calls to the landlord—and the police—with no lasting results. Aaron Sorensen, the landlord, says he hadn’t realized the tenants were so disruptive that the police had been called. He also said he’d agreed to sit down with neighbors and discuss the problem, but the neighbors never contacted him after their initial request.
