MARYLAND THROUGH THE EYES OF SUN PHOTOGRAPHERS

On Baltimore's east side, progress is coming at the expense of long-established communities. The East Baltimore Life Sciences and Technology Park being created near Johns Hopkins Hospital is expected to span 80 acres and offer much-needed employment and new housing. But Rita Paul and hundreds of other former east-side residents who lost their homes to the project find themselves having to re-create their lives in new places. They were compensated for the loss of their homes, but money can't make up for the upheaval to their lives.
