The corner of North and Charles promises to be full of Artscape visitors this weekend, but how many of them will realize there is a thriving and changing residential community within and behind those commercial blocks? This might be Baltimore's fastest-growing arts residential neighborhood, not just its arts presentation and performance address. But unlike the creative stands strung out along Charles Street this weekend, the results of a lot of residential investment and hard work are not so evident.

A Baltimore police officer guarded pounds of cocaine for a large city drug organization, which had been importing its supply into Maryland via a Cuban drug lord in Miami, according to federal agents. James Scott Fullwood, a Southeastern District officer who was arrested Wednesday, was paid $500 per kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cocaine that he guarded for the William E. "Uncle Bill" Bickford Jr. organization, a federal affidavit said. Bickford and his underlings are suspected of distributing 10 to 20 pounds of cocaine a week in and around Baltimore, authorities said.

The wrecking ball completed its work this week when it leveled "No. 10 Downing Street," the old cafeteria on the east side of Calvert between Baltimore and Fayette streets whose real name was Bickford's. For decades, it had been one of Baltimore's most storied and hallowed political hangouts. And now, to passers-by and sidewalk superintendents, the only thing remaining of the demolished building is the brick-lined footprint of its cellar, which no doubt will soon give way to the rapacious demands of its wreckers.

At street level, in any neighborhood south of the Inner Harbor, old Baltimore rowhouses can be devilishly deceptive. The narrow facades give the impression of small living spaces. Yet, initial architectural design and clever restoration can allow for more living space than many suburban dwellings hold. The trick is working lengthwise. And such is the case with Teri and Peter Bickford's home in the 1500 block of S. Charles St. The exterior brick front of the Bickford home appears newly cleaned and stands in direct contrast to the Formstone treatment of a neighbor's home.
