The Belvedere in historic Mount Vernon boasts a 40-foot-long mahogany bar where the likes of Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, the Duke of Windsor and Clark Gable sidled up for a drink. The Suite Ultralounge Nightclub is in the basement of the Belvedere and boasts being "the only upscale venue in Baltimore where you can bring your own bottle of top shelf." Its Web site promo wants you to "swagger like us" and "come get your party on." One does not seem to go with the other. Early Saturday, loud music gave way to gunfire on East Chase Street in front of the Belvedere, leaving two people wounded by bullets, a third person stabbed and a bartender using a towel to try and stop the flow of blood.

MARTIN O'Malley is mayor of Baltimore, but this is merely by popular vote. Some places have mayors because a person stays in a place until the title grows over him like a birthright. At the Belvedere Square marketplace, the mayor is Greg Novik, by dint of his faith in a community, his refusal to leave when so many others fled and, never to be minimized, his magnificent bagels. Last week, when they re-opened the market at Belvedere Avenue and York Road, Novik stood there and welcomed back what must have seemed like displaced constituents.
