Attorney Robert Erwin pruned ivy on a tree outside his house Sunday afternoon as cars rolled through Baltimore City's new roundabout at 39th Street and Canterbury Road. So, he was asked, is the traffic-calming device a good thing or a bad thing? “It's a bad thing,” Erwin declared. “It doesn't seem to be slowing down traffic, especially early in the morning during rush hour. And B, I think it's ugly.” But four days earlier, as a month of construction work wound down on the controversial traffic circle, 25 residents came together at the finished site July 10 for a group photo that also served as a show of solidarity and support, at least until the novelty wears off. “We're trying to be positive about it,” said Kenna Forsyth, a 37-year resident.

Tuscany-Canterbury, a North Baltimore neighborhood known for its architectural diversity, has been named to the National Register of Historic Places. Much of the credit for the designation goes to Eileen Higham, a psychologist who began to write a book-length history of the community -- the world outside her Tudor-style window -- five years ago. Her research led to the application for historical status. Higham, who has lived with her husband in the neighborhood since 1970, fits the informal profile of the 3,000 residents of this triangular enclave north of the Johns Hopkins University campus, bounded by University Parkway, Charles Street and Linkwood Road: bookish, academic or professional and settled.

At the corner of Tuscany and Canterbury roads -- among the high-rise apartments and redbrick townhouses -- stands an Elizabethan half-timber and a modern Tudor-influenced structure. What they represent is an anomaly in this changing city community.Go to the former on a weekend night, and you'll see Johns Hopkins University students dimming the party lights of the three-story fraternity house at 3906 Canterbury, with the sounds of alternative bands permeating the streets.Go to the latter on a weekday afternoon, and you'll experience a two-block line of double-parked station wagons and minivans lined up in front of the Calvert School on Tuscany, with anxious mothers honking and children playing on the curb.

The style of fence is called "Barcelona," but some residents of Tuscany-Canterbury say it reminds them more of Berlin. It's the "Gorbachev fence" to the mother of neighbor Fred Chalfant, who often walks his dog past the barrier, which is six-feet tall, topped with spikes and divides West 39th Street down the middle. Last week, Baltimore City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke called it “a Berlin Wall of a fence,” as she demanded justification for the fence's appearance, in a letter to the city's Department of Transportation, which erected the fence in mid-April.

The Baltimore Department of Transportation has a message for the residents of Tuscany-Canterbury: Do not walk on our grass. But instead of little signs, the transportation department conveys that message with a six-foot, spike-topped fence. The barrier runs down the middle of the newly seeded median it is protecting. "They say it's to protect the grass, but a light layer of hay would have remedied that," said Sandra Snow, who lives and works in the neighborhood. "A nice path, a walkway, a low hedge - there are so many things that could have been done.

This week we update you on an issue previously covered in Watchdog. Update:: Yes, Linkwood Road in Baltimore is still closed at its southern end. And it will remain closed until at least the end of the year. The street, which connects University Parkway in the Tuscany-Canterbury neighborhood with Cold Spring Lane, has been closed since early 2008, when work began on the Lower Stony Run Interceptor, a two-year, $40 million sewer project. Nearly a year ago, Watchdog told readers that the contractors had encountered rock, an unforeseen circumstance despite surveys completed before the project began.
