A portion of Cathedral Street will remain closed indefinitely until the city repairs a broken storm drain that was leaking water into the Walters Art Museum . In early August, staff at the Walters noticed water was coming through the electrical panel in the basement and was concerned that the condition might cause a power outage. The city's Department of Public Works discovered the storm drain was leaking into a conduit that holds the electrical wires at the museum. "We were deeply concerned, as was the Walters," said Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for the department.

Mari Luna Bistro, located on Cathedral Street across from Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, has closed. The restaurant closed officially on Jan. 21 after three years of operation. It was operated by the Luna family, which continues to run the two Pikesville-area restaurants -- Mari Luna Mexican Grill and Mari Luna Latin Grille.    The Cathedral Street restaurant was temporarily closed by the Baltimore City Health Department from Nov. 22 to Nov. 26 because of "rat infestation" and "unsanitary conditions," according to the department's website . An employee at Mari Luna Latin Grille confirmed the downtown closing but offered no explanation.

For months now, an adjoining Cathedral Street double-width brownstone has been architecturally knitted into the Alcazar. The old Alcazar possesses a curious social pedigree.

As many times as it rolls around, I never outgrow the FlowerMart, which opened Friday and runs through Saturday. It's held in May and timed to take advantage of the best part of Maryland's spring. Any event that draws so many families, especially babies in strollers, mothers and grandmothers, to a hallowed Baltimore neighborhood gets my vote, even if, truth be told, I am not much of crab cake fancier. Mount Vernon has long fascinated me. I was not long free of those baby carriages when I was taken along Charles Street and spied an exotic retail mix of first-floor and basement-level shops selling old maps, rare clocks, books, antiques or other items not found at Woolworth's.

A few weeks ago, I spent a few quiet minutes in Green Mount Cemetery, where its higher ground offers unexpected views of Baltimore. As I looked to the southeast, something curious caught my eye. What was going on in the nearby Oliver neighborhood? What was that thing attached to the mighty bell tower of St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church? This parish — the oldest African-American Roman Catholic congregation in the United States officially founded for people of color — has just begun to celebrate its 150th anniversary.

House hunters searching for an in-town, historic mansion in Mount Vernon, the heart of Baltimore's cultural center, need look no further than 514 Cathedral Street. The address is home to a 9,000-square-foot town house lovingly restored over the last eight years by its owner, Drew Rieger. Dating to 1847, the six-level, elegant home was once the residence of a commander of the Civil War. "It's the only house in Mount Vernon that has been restored back to its original 1840s floor plan," Rieger said.
