Charles Street north of downtown needs TLC, too

August 24, 2010

In previous issues I read the comments of the Charles Street Association, which explained the need of improvement in downtown section of Charles St. ("More Charles Street TLC," Readers Respond, Aug. 22).

But I wished to hear some comments of Johns Hopkins University, which lies on very north Charles Street and receives students and parents from all over the U.S. and the world.

Anyone who drives from south to north on North Charles Street after 29th Street will be sorry that he took this what city officials call scenic drive, because of its potholes and poor surface, especially in front of Hopkins University.

This area should not only be the showcase of Hopkins but also Baltimore City. The same complaint can be made also for the section of North Charles Street above University Parkway to the county-city line.
