Three months ago, Roosevelt Grandy paid $390 a month for a three-bedroom, one-bath rowhouse on Carey Street. Now Grandy, 44, owns a renovated three-bedroom, 1 1/2 -bath townhouse on North Calhoun Street, and his mortgage is $60 less than his rent. Grandy, who grew up in West Baltimore, is among scores of residents who are realizing homeownership through programs that provide low-interest loans, require nominal down payments and keep people in the city. He lives in Sandtown-Winchester Square, a $30 million redevelopment project that when complete will include 322 rehabilitated townhouses in one of Baltimore's most depressed areas.

Let it now be known: It is not steamed crabs or white marble steps or fancy hairdos or the Orioles for which Baltimore should be famous.It's snowball stands.As if they were a rite of summer, snowball stands sprout throughout the city as the temperature shoots to a near boil. On street corners, in window sills, on vacant lots, on two rickety tables and a chair, snowball stands are omnipresent."This is my third one today," Sandy White, 31, said yesterday as she slurped a snowball at a makeshift stand on Calhoun Street -- a fat, juicy glob of red cherry syrup blotting her yellow shirt.

In his 130-year-old Victorian rowhouse near Union Square, Paul Taylor has settled into a lifestyle that combines city conveniences with country pleasures.His three-story brick home in the first block of North Calhoun Street is a short walk to Hollins Market and other city attractions. Its fenced-in back yard is large enough for a grape arbor and numerous fruit trees, plus running space for Mike, a 2-year-old Doberman.Mr. Taylor, who bought the house six years ago, says he has always enjoyed city living.
