Project to beautify street reaches end of first phase

October 24, 1994

A ceremonial planting of a tree yesterday marked the end of the first phase of a $900,000 beautification project of Albemarle Street between the Baltimore City Life Museums' 1840 House and the Flag House Courts public housing project.

The tree was one of 18 planted in the yards of low-rise units in East Baltimore.

Last summer, 18 neighborhood teen-agers helped erect cast-iron fences in front of more than 30 units.

Next year, the street will be repaved and new street lights installed.

"It really was a ceremony to acknowledge the contribution of the kids," said Nancy Brennan, executive director of City Life Museums.

City Life Museums are providing funding for the project with city, state and federal sources.
