For 40 years, Bob Hieronimus' mural has stood watch over the Charles North community, its depictions of an American eagle, the great seal of the United States and Baltimore's Battle Monument serving as a constant in the evolving neighborhood. Now, a new coat of paint and an enlarged canvas should ensure it continues to do so for at least another four decades. Called "The Bicentennial Mural" when it was first painted in 1974 on a wall overlooking a park at Lafayette and St. Paul streets, Hieronimus' work has expanded in both size and scope.

Dinner is fun when it feels like a mini-vacation. And that's exactly what dinner at Mi Comalito is. The new Charles North restaurant's menu spans several countries, from standard-issue Mexican dishes to specialties from El Salvador and Honduras. Thanks to the longtime popularity of Mexican food, Salvadoran and Honduran dishes are familiar enough to be comforting. But because the Central American cuisines aren't as ubiquitous as Mexican, they feel less run of the mill. Scene & Decor With warm yellow walls dotted with red accents and decorated with Salvadoran art, Mi Comalito's small space felt like a locals-only restaurant in a tiny Central American beach town.

Lost City Diner materialized in Charles North last August. Now, the fountain shop and late-night stop is shutting down. Don't worry, though, its owner, Joy Martin, says, it's only for an intermission. Martin, who also own the Club Charles, gave no firm date for the re-opening of Lost City Diner .  In an emailed message said she's "just closing to do some renovations to the kitchen and try to get my sign up. "    When Lost City Diner opened suddenly last summer, it seemed to be the final chapter a long-running serial that played out for years on the corner of Charles and Lanvale, a half block up from the Club Charles Lost City Diner, when it revealed itself, was beautiful, with antique fixtures and fanciful retro-industrial elements gorgeously evoking the giddy atmosphere of a Buck Rogers serial from the 1930s.

Keep your eyes on Charles North. The continually emerging neighborhood, much of which is contained within the Station North Arts and Entertainment District, was a 2013 hot spot with the openings of surprising new places like Bottega and The Crown, attracting appreciative crowds. Charles North continues to blossom, and three recently opened cafes - Red Emma's, Canteen and Nancy by SNAC - are welcoming the new year with plans to expand their hours, menus or both.

The Maryland Film Festival would transform the historic and long-shuttered Parkway Theatre into a venue for small independent films and concerts under one of three proposals to enliven a key intersection in Baltimore's Charles North neighborhood. Two other developers also hope to restore the former movie palace, where vaudeville acts also once played, and bring in live music, theater and other performances, the Baltimore Development Corp. said Tuesday. The BDC, the city's economic development agency, said it had received three proposals to redevelop the theater at 3 W. North Ave. and adjacent buildings at 1 W. North Ave. and 1820 N. Charles St. in response to a request by the agency in December.

To those old-time Baltimoreans who remember the original Chesapeake Restaurant and the luxury automobile showroom across from it, the 1700 block of North Charles Street may appear dead. The Chesapeake has been boarded up for years; the showroom is a laundromat.Try this scruffy block at night, though. Art flicks at the Charles Theatre, dancing at the Depot, rubbernecking at John Waters at the Club Charles. Throw in a couple of after-hours spots and Gatsby's up the street -- which is currently expanding -- and you get the idea.

I think of Bottega, Adrien Aeschilman's small and crazily charming new restaurant in Charles North, as the kind of place you'd want your best friend to open, if your friend was as talented and gracious as Aeschilman. Bottega might make you think of Philadelphia, where there was an explosion about 10 years ago of tiny mom-and-pop BYOB restaurants, many of them about the postage-stamp size of Bottega, which seats around 20 people, tops. The boutique BYOB trend never really caught on in Baltimore, but with Bottega, you can see how a city full of diners fell in love with it. First of all, Bottega is a great-looking place, full of rusticity, like the rough-hewn tables, farmhouse chic tableware and the parti-colored wooden floor planks that Aeschilman salvaged from a West Virginia barn.

Shifting gears in its approach to redeveloping the Charles North area of Baltimore, the city's economic development agency has decided to hire a consultant to help shape the neighborhood's identity and analyze how a dozen vacant or deteriorating sites could be redeveloped by property owners. The Baltimore Development Corp. said yesterday that it has issued a request for qualifications for consultants who would come up with a plan to attract new business and housing and promote the arts in a 10-block area between Mount Vernon and Charles Village.

Bottega, a just-opened restaurant in Charles North, is not one of your bigger restaurants. "We know that we are tiny," is how owner Adrien Aeschliman describes the new BYOB. He said his goal with Bottega was to create "a place I would want next door to my home. " Bottega seats about 15 comfortably, and mostly at a communal dining table. On its first official Friday night of operation, the restaurant was full, for the most part, with industry types and other well-wishers.  Bottega has done little in the way of publicity, but it does have a handsome minimalist website and  well-maintained Facebook page , with photographs documenting the frequently, if not daily, changing lineup on Bottega's chalkboard menu.

The corner of North and Charles promises to be full of Artscape visitors this weekend, but how many of them will realize there is a thriving and changing residential community within and behind those commercial blocks? This might be Baltimore's fastest-growing arts residential neighborhood, not just its arts presentation and performance address. But unlike the creative stands strung out along Charles Street this weekend, the results of a lot of residential investment and hard work are not so evident.

Peter Marvit never missed rehearsal with the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, and this week he showed up wearing one of his trademark ties - short, fat, and brightly colored. After the three-hour practice concluded with "Carol of the Angels," director Tom Hall told everyone "to drive safe and be well. " But as Marvit returned to his Northeast Baltimore home, the 51-year-old scientist and father was gunned down just steps from his front door overlooking Herring Run Park - a seemingly random attack that police said Tuesday may have been a robbery.

Doreen Bolger, my Charles Village neighbor, invited me to join her at the Single Carrot Theatre, one of the cultural arrivals along North Avenue. The place was new to me, and it was time to learn what's going on in the slow but steady rebirth of Penn Station's environs. There were many familiar faces in the 40-seat theater, people who, like myself, had not caught up with all that was happening in the former commercial neighborhood between Mount Vernon and Charles Village.

A hotel and shopping arcade attached to Pennsylvania Station. A performing arts center operated by faith-based groups. Acres of parks and recreational space along the Jones Falls Valley. A 60-story tower containing two-story "live-work" condos. Four blocks filled with "incubator" shops and studios for artists, artisans and other creative types. Those are a few of the ideas suggested for revitalizing Charles North, the 100-acre arts and entertainment district centered on Charles Street and North Avenue in midtown Baltimore.
