While working on the rehabilitation of historic buildings in Baltimore City, I'm always dogged by a sense of futility - especially when I compare Baltimore with Brooklyn. More than 30 years ago when I went to college there, Brooklyn was a total basket case - much worse statistically than Baltimore in crime, urban decay and poverty. It seemed absolutely hopeless that the borough would ever rebound. It was so dangerous that at my architecture school, no one stayed late to work on their projects.

Dear Lena Dunham, thank you.  Thank you for giving your characters some happiness. Thank you for this bumpy, ugly, imperfect sophomore season. Thank you for showing us everyone's low points and high points. Thank you for not apologizing for being messy and erratic, but most importantly, thank you for giving your audience a small smidgen of a quasi-somewhat happy ending on Sunday night. I knew it wouldn't be a Busby Berkeley musical happy ending, but I was hoping for a little nugget of hope, and I got it. I was not expecting to hold my hands over my mouth and wipe away tears tonight, but Dunham gave that to me and for that, I thank her. Hannah is still reeling from her aural injury and is holed up in her apartment, without a sentence written.

Residents of an urban Anne Arundel County community just across the Baltimore City line are urging county officials to refocus on their community, which they say continues to suffer from unchecked zoning violations, illegal drug activity and nuisance behavior. Last week, officials with the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development awarded more than $260,000 in funds to support communities in northern Anne Arundel County and South Baltimore. The Community Legacy program money will be used to "fill the funding gap" and rehabilitate housing developments, including those in Brooklyn Heights, said Rebecca Smith, a spokeswoman for the state agency.

It takes a block to raise a neighborhood - or at least that's what Anne Arundel County officials hope it will take in Brooklyn Heights. Last week, officials showed residents of the North County community what they were planning to do with a $400,000 Community Legacy grant from the state. The money will be available to homeowners along one street - Ballman Court - in the form of low-interest loans for home improvements and renovations. The county will expand the program to other streets as it secures more funds.
