Accidents were slowing traffic on Route 27 at Lucabaugh Mill Road in Westminster and Liberty Road and Brenbrook Drive in Baltimore County. Traffic was slow on I-895 near the Steel Bridge, due to construction activity. Monument Street is closed between Wolfe Street and Patterson Park Avenue in east Baltimore, due to sinkhole repairs. Maryland Transit Administration bus 35 has been diverted.

A Canton condominium owned by Baltimore author Tom Clancy is slated for settlement next month, according to court documents. The Clancy estate is the subject of a legal battle between his widow and the former executor. The 2,379-square-foot unit in the Canton Cove building on Boston Street came under contract for $660,000 in September.  The court approved a petition to sell the property Sept. 17, a day after attorneys for J.W. Thompson Webb sought permission for the deal.

The article "City, county agree to help pay for Red Line as cost rises to $2.9 billion" (Aug. 26) was disturbing. As one who was born and raised in the area, I remember well the many trains moving along Fleet Street and Aliceanna Streets when automobile traffic (crossing both north and south) would come to a complete halt. While waiting for the box cars to pass, there were times they would then be reversed in moving - thereby doubling your wait time to cross. Many houses on both sides of the streets took the brunt from the heavy trains causing them to vibrate and shake.

It came as no surprise when Flirt, the seediest club on Boston Street, closed a few months back. For me, one trip was enough: The place was grimy and empty, and the DJs bumped crunk hip hop and stared at my girlfriend like hungry hyenas. We bounced after a bit, just as a thugged-out crowd started trickling in. No, thanks. When word got out that a new owner took over and gutted the place, I was really looking forward to it - especially after talking to the new manager, Warren Hemenway.

Once a gritty neighborhood on Southeast Baltimore's industrial waterfront, Canton has transformed itself into a model of urban chic where million-dollar townhouses overlook the harbor and destination night spots surround O'Donnell Square. But many residents of the resurgent community worry that the city's preferred route for an east-west transit line would cut off Canton from the water, drag down property values and compound the area's already serious traffic and parking problems. They're organizing to oppose the plan known as Alternative 4-C - which has powerful support and could well be chosen when the Maryland Transit Administration decides this summer.

It wasn't long after opening in 1996 that Canton's GoodLove Bar became known as a rare gem in the region's sometimes drab nightlife scene. The sleek lounge was one of the first spots in Charm City to marry loungy, laid-back vibes with a minimalist look (a combination that's since become popular at other local joints, including Red Maple). And unlike some of Washington's upscale establishments, GoodLove had a welcoming, neighborly vibe that was as unaffected as its decor was trendy. Years later, however, flames would sweep through the Boston Street spot, bringing all of that innovation and good-time fun to an end. But to the delight of many local hipsters, the fire of March 2003 wouldn't stop the GoodLove party from continuing; and after a year of steady renovation, the corner bar is now back in business - or as its glossy new grand-opening flier states: "Love is Good Again."

With a large fitness club on one side of Boston Street and new business on other side, the signs are clear that Canton is rapidly growing across a section of railroad tracks and into an adjacent industrial area. Cars routinely clog Boston Street, with traffic jams now reaching as far east as Interstate 95, frustrating residents and visitors. "It's already a nightmare," said Darryl Jurkiewicz, president of the Canton Community Association. The large, multitrack crossing used by three railroads that often switch from one track to the other increases delays and backups.

As a 15-year resident of Baltimore City, I am still astonished by the idea of the Red Line being developed as it is designed ( "Forward thinking on the Red Line," July 28). The idea of the Red Line is to bring access from the west and east wings to the downtown area. As a resident of the Fells Point-Canton area, I do not know one resident who feels this is a good idea or desirable for our community. North Avenue is basically a ghost town with more boarded up blocks of homes than anywhere else in the city.

A new BJ's Wholesale Club could open in Southeast Baltimore by the end of next year, said a development firm that has been working to make the area a shopping destination. Officials at Chesapeake Real Estate Group, who are partners in the Canton Crossing shops, said the company has an agreement with BJ's to locate on a 6.58-acre site on O'Donnell Street, formerly occupied by the New Jersey-based specialty paint company Complimentary Coatings Corp., which last year announced plans to close.

Michael Hankin's comments on the new street sweeping program that has now been initiated in Baltimore are very much appreciated, but the effort will not turn out to be the panacea for the trash problem in city that he suggests ( "A clean sweep," April 7). The view that cooperation rather than enforcement is the best way to clean our Inner Harbor of trash leaves a lot to be desired. His assumption is that most of the trash is on the streets of Baltimore and that street sweeping will be the factor that reduces trash going into the Harbor.

For what reason is Highlandtown now called Canton? I live in Harford County now but grew up in Highlandtown near Haussner's restaurant and Eastern Avenue. I went to school at Sacred Heart of Jesus in Highlandtown. Highlandtown was in the higher elevation in Baltimore with boundaries that included Hudson Street and Fait Street up to Dean Street and the underpass next to Greektown and from Pratt and Baltimore Streets to Patterson Park Avenue and around the park. Canton was always further south down to Boston Street and the water.

My parents grew up about a mile-and-a-half and a cultural universe away from one another in Depression-era southeast Baltimore. Dad was a paperboy in a largely Italian and German section of Highlandtown long ago called "the Hill" and now known as Greektown. Mom, whose mother was a textile worker and the family breadwinner, came from an almost monolithic Polish colony along Boston Street, a neighborhood of broom factories, lumberyards and canneries remembered as "old" Canton. Because it was Baltimore, the neighborhoods had one fundamental cuisine in common: Chesapeake Bay blue crabs, both plentiful and reasonably priced.

The new Samos, which opens Monday at The Shops at Canton Crossing, won't be exactly like the original, enduringly popular casual restaurant in Greektown. For one thing, the new Samos will take credit cards, said Michael Georgalas, whose father, Nicholas, opened Samos on Oldham Street in 1977. For another, the new Samos will be open on Sundays. The Samos at Canton Crossing, which the younger Georgalas owns and operates with his wife, Valentina, will be a fast-casual restaurant where orders are placed at the counter and brought to the table by food runners.

An article about a federal money laundering investigation that was published in some editions of The Sun yesterday did not include the location of the Bay Cafe restaurant owned by two Baltimore men charged in the case. The restaurant is in Fenwick Island, Del., and is not connected to the Bay Cafe on Boston Street in Baltimore.

In 1969, strong community action from all over Baltimore defeated an expressway plan that devastated neighborhoods in West Baltimore and threatened to do the same in Canton and along Boston Street. I was one of hundreds of people across Baltimore who worked with neighborhood groups and the citywide Movement Against Destruction to prevent the building of an eight-lane East-West Expressway. Forty years later, Baltimore finds itself again in a debate about the best way to move people to and through our city.

The Shops at Canton Crossing, a sprawling $105 million shopping center on Boston Street in Canton, has been years in the making. In preparation for its official opening Tuesday afternoon, landscape crews planted trees Monday along pathways dotted with benches and bike racks, workers at Old Navy arranged jeans and sweater displays, and servers at Mission BBQ prepared to serve their first lunch. About two-thirds of the center's 30 shops and restaurants have opened or are on the verge of opening, among them Target's 135,000-square-foot anchor store; Michaels; DSW Shoe Warehouse; Ulta Beauty; Loft; Five Below; and Vitamin Shoppe.

The owners of Waterfront Kitchen have announced the concept for their upcoming project at the Shops at Canton Crossing, the new 325,000-square-foot-center retail center on Boston Street in Canton. Farmstead Grill, a 200-seat restaurant featuring locally sourced food, will open in 2014 with Galen Sampson, former executive chef and owner of The Dogwood, which closed in March. Sampson will be the restaurant's executive chef and chief operating officer. The restaurant will fully occupy a 4,030-square-foot building that will anchor The Shops at Canton Crossing's public “pocket park.”   Chuck Nabit and Michael Klein, the owners of Waterfront Kitchen, have leased a kiosk building that will sit across from the park from Farmstead Grill.
