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.

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

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.

A Mississippi-style riverboat tied up in Canton sold Thursday for a bid of $357,200 at an auction that drew attention from up and down the East Coast. The sale of the 140-foot Liberty Belle, which once offered dinner cruises on the Delaware River near Philadelphia before being dry docked in Baltimore for repairs, drew about 25 people and lasted about 15 minutes, said Scott Frank, of Alex Cooper Auctioneers Inc., which handled the sale. The paddle-wheeler was built in 1997 for $3.4 million, and can host as many as 400 passengers in its multiple dining rooms.

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.

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.

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.

Open only since the end of May, Of Love & Regret is operating with admirable maturity, confidence and grace. It's a wonderful gathering space for Baltimore, and it's putting out some of the best burgers and good cheer in town. Plain but not spartan, the interior space suggests the lunchroom of a benevolently run factory, where everyone respects the work they do and each other. There are a half-dozen tables on either side of the long, bar. A community table with high stools sits in the room's center.

Disruptions to two underground electrical cables have left hundreds of residents in Fells Point and Canton without power or air conditioning as Baltimore experiences one of the hottest stretches of the summer and city officials warn of the potential for heat-related illnesses. On Tuesday morning, a blown fuse on an electrical line in the area of Poppleton and Hollins Market disrupted power to hundreds more. That outage has been fixed. In Fells Point, power was restored for about 380 customers by 1 p.m. Tuesday, though a separate problem — a blown overhead transformer — briefly knocked out power to 900 customers in the neighborhood again Tuesday evening, said Rachael Lighty, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman.
