Cars are 16 feet long. Row houses are 11 to 14 feet long. OK, my shoes are 1 foot long, my bike is 5. So walk or bike. Oh, wait: People are thinking they must use cars and the city must provide parking? Pretty silly. Theodore Houk, Lutherville Text NEWS to 70701 to get Baltimore Sun local news text alerts

Baltimore's Canton neighborhood, a blue-collar community reshaped as the city's Gold Coast in the 1980s, is about to experience another wave of development.Over the next several months, decisions are likely to be made that will affect the look and character of up to 17 acres of valuable land on both sides of Boston Street.Redevelopment plans aroused controversy in Canton throughout much of the 1980s as out-of-town developers proposed mega-projects that threatened to wall off the working-class neighborhood from its waterfront.

Baltimore police's Marine Unit rescued a 41-year man who fell into the harbor near Canton Saturday afternoon, officials said. Around 1:30 p.m., police were called to the 3200 block of Boston Street in Southeast Baltimore for a report of a man who had fallen into the water. The marine unit responded and pulled the man out, police said. The man told officers he was sitting on a pier when he lost his balance and fell into the water, police said. He was taken to an area hospital and police do not believe his injuries are life-threatening.

In its aim and ambition, Moonshine Tavern is nothing like the Gin Mill, the cozy Canton bar and restaurant it replaced after nearly 16 years of service. Like many of the nearby bars on Boston Street, the Gin Mill was more of a casual place for dinner and drinks than a hot spot. I talked to Moonshine Tavern co-owner Shanna Cooper in January, and it was clear that she and partner Jacob Millisock hoped to make Gin Mill a distant memory. "We're not looking to be a hole-in-the-wall bar," Cooper said.

The Baltimore City Fire Department battled a three-alarm fire at a warehouse at 1200 Baylis St. in the Canton area late into the night Sunday, bringing it under control around midnight. Capt. Roman Clark, a department spokesman, said about 60 residents in the block were evacuated. No homes were involved in the fire, but heavy smoke and the fire's proximity to residences spurred the evacuation, said Chief Kevin Cartwright. An MTA bus was called to shelter residents. Power was also out in the immediate area.

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.

First it was Dark Horse Saloon, then it was The Horse With No Name and now it's closed. The Horse With No Name and its adjacent video-game hangout Baltimore Bar Arcade in Canton are no longer open,  general manager Amber Nolan confirmed this afternoon. The last day of operation was "about two weeks ago," Nolan said. The tandem bars first opened in June 2011 as Irish pub Finnegan's Wake and Dark Horse Saloon. After ownership changes, Finnegan's Wake closed in March 2012. Last year, the former Irish pub filled its space with arcade game consoles and rebranded itself Baltimore Bar Arcade.

A 40-foot cabin cruiser caught fire in the Anchorage Marina in Canton Wednesday afternoon, bringing multiple fire units to the pier where it was docked, city fire officials said. Units responded to the marina in the 2500 block of Boston Street, which has slips for purchase and rent, about 3:40 p.m. and isolated the boat in the water to prevent the fire from jumping to other boats nearby, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire spokesman. The fire was brought under control about 4:05 p.m., Cartwright said.

The recommendation to open a new elementary/middle school in Canton is drawing opposition from the community and the popular charter school that would be its neighbor. The proposed school, which would serve pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, was part of a large-scale plan rolled out by Interim CEO Tisha Edwards earlier this month. The plan would open a new school to alleviate overcrowding in Southeast Baltimore schools, Edwards said, while also moving a current school -- Friendship Academy of Science and Technology middle/high school -- whose students have been causing a stir in the community.

Since the first Looney's Pub opened in Canton in 1993, co-owners Bill Larney and Steve Litrenta have been aggressively expanding the brand. The newest Looney's opened in College Park in October, following locations in Bel Air and Maple Lawn. But for Sunday's AFC title game, only the original will do. Fans will mob the Canton bar just as they did in 2010, the last (and only) time the Ravens have beaten the New England Patriots. You can count on the crowd being young, wildly enthusiastic and head-to-toe in purple.
