I had one of those soul-satisfying, I-love-Baltimore nights a few Saturdays back at Cafe Gia Ristorante, a colorful, cheerful and satisfying Italian restaurant on the corner of High Street and Eastern Avenue. We showed up for early dinner reservations and were whisked right upstairs to the narrow second-floor balcony, which was pretty darn magical on this particular night. The view from there isn't spectacular, but it's captivating, a mix of old and new. Across the street, you can see diners on the balcony at Dalesio's, and further back, the high- and medium-rise luxury apartment buildings of the Harbor East development.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A child's shriek startled Qinuo Van Dyk just as her husband leaped off their 15th-floor Miami Beach hotel room balcony to his death.

That's when she started screaming. "It's so horrific; it's almost unbelievable," said Officer Bobby Hernandez, spokesman for Miami Beach police.

S ome of my favorite haunts in old Baltimore occupied me over a recent Sunday afternoon. On the first day of the week, I was in two historic churches, St. Ignatius on North Calvert Street and St. Alphonsus on Saratoga, home of the Latin Mass and a very handsome set of newly restored 19th-century stained-glass windows. There was time for a quick run through the Walters Art Museum's Greek artifact show and the Hippodrome matinee of "Dreamgirls." It was a cool winter day, with the flattering natural lighting from a setting sun. Ancient downtown Baltimore appeared much restored, cleaned and painted, physically in far better shape than some sketchy years in the 1990s.

Hall of Famer and former Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer wanted something a bit different when he was looking for new digs in the city a couple of years ago. "It's a unique apartment. It's worked well for me," Palmer said of his two-level condo in the Canal Street Malt House at the edge of Little Italy. It put him a short walk from many of his favorite restaurants and near the O's, for whom he's been a color analyst. "It's very tranquil." The loft-style condo in the reborn structure - it was built in 1866 to store malt for the city's growing brewing industry - has a modified industrial look with exposed ductwork and huge windows.
