A train derailment this week near Pennsylvania Station showed me how confused we are about the Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, where the mishap occurred. This 1873 work of engineering burrows under West Baltimore neighborhoods for 1.4 miles, but its role in local transportation remains little known. I winced when a radio news reader described its location as "south of Baltimore. " Though many assessments say that this 140-year-old engineering relic needs to be replaced, it has not happened.

The residents of the Memorial Apartments in Bolton Hill first started complaining about the intersection in front of the complex when a firetruck was broadsided four years ago. The intersection is dangerous, they told City Hall. Its wide median, poor signage and confusing design are causing frequent accidents to occur at the corner of McMechen Street and Eutaw Place, where schoolchildren and many senior citizens cross the street. The collisions continued — including eight in the past 12 weeks.

While perusing an urban planning website recently from my office here in Honolulu, I learned with great sadness that the iconic and unique Baltimore Formstone building material is to be banned under new city design guidelines. Having lived my early adult years in Mount Vernon on St. Paul Street after a stint overseas in the Peace Corps in the mid-1990's, I have fond memories of Charm City, its quirky eccentricities, its incredible people and its unbelievable neighborhoods. No other streetscape better identifies Baltimore to the outside world than a block of Formstone-clad row houses with their scrubbed white stoops and sprinkled with a few painted screens throughout.

After seven years running his own kitchen at Salt , his Upper Fells Point restaurant that put duck-fat fries, Wagyu sliders and changing menus on Baltimore's food map, Jason Ambrose is stepping aside. Ambrose is turning over Salt's day-to-day kitchen operations to Brian Lavin, who joined the Salt team in 2010 and has been the restaurant's sous-chef for about a year and a half, according to Ambrose. "I made a decision I was going to take a step out," said Ambrose. "Brian came to me as a line cook with a tremendous interest in food.

If indecent exposure laws aren't enough to give adventurous Pimlico infield visitors pause, here's another disincentive: The famous race course lies inside of one of Baltimore's statistical hot spots for gonorrhea. Just in time for the end of national STI Awareness Month (and, unintentionally, in time for the start of the Triple Crown at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday), staff recently added a set of maps to the city's STD page, showing Baltimore ZIP codes' rates for chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in 2012.
