Charles Street

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.

If you lived downtown, you could be eating by now. The annual Let's Eat Charles Street Festival is noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Look for B&O American Brasserie, Ban Thai, Beef Brothers, Cazbar, Home Slyce and Mick O'Shea's among the food vendors. Located on the 300 block of Charles Street, between Saratoga and Mulberry, the street festival includes craft vendors, live music from Flashback, children's activities, and beer and wine tents. The new Pratt Street Farmers' Market , which was originally scheduled to debut on June 13, will instead launch on June 20 because of concerns about the weather.

Carolyn Marie Hauck, a retired Enoch Pratt Free Library staff member who encouraged patrons to explore films and the arts, died of dementia complications at the Pickersgill Retirement Community.

She earned a bachelor's degree in art from Miami University in Miami, Ohio, and had a master's degree in library science from Western Reserve University. She moved to Baltimore in 1954 and joined the central Pratt Library.

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.

I was shocked to hear the news of Dr. Theodore Houk's injury after he was hit by a car recently as he was jogging to work ("Best wishes to Dr. Houk," March 30). I wish him and his family all the best and a speedy recovery. After serving the past 20 years in the military, I was happy to return to the area where I grew up when my family found a home in West Towson last year. Being an avid competitive runner, one of the first things I noticed was Dr. Houk's figure sprinting up and down Charles Street.

It's springtime, and with the beautiful weather and perfect light comes an age-old ritual as artists set up their easels around Maryland. You can find them working in a variety of mediums in Druid Hill Park, roadside in the Green Spring and Worthington valleys, along the winding stone-lined streets of Ellicott City, or on the wharves of St. Michaels and Rock Hall. And among the artists will be many members of the Baltimore Watercolor Society, the nation's third-oldest such organization.

If I had to vote on which food store I would like to see at the Rotunda, I would vote for Graul's Market. My reason is simple: Graul's is a full-service market. Retirement communities and apartment buildings, all inhabited by senior citizens, surround the Rotunda. St. Mary's Roland View Towers is a two-building complex near the intersection of Roland Avenue and 40th Street. Roland Park Place and Keswick Multi-Care are right across from the Rotunda on 40th Street. Many who live and work in those complexes depended on the Giant for groceries until it moved down the hill.

Shirtless, hair flowing, legs pumping, Dr. Theodore Houk is a familiar sight running along North Charles Street on his twice-daily, 5.5-mile trek between his Lutherville home and his job at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. "You always see him out there," said Kathleen Wrona, who has seen Houk, an internal medicine specialist, often during her commute. On Thursday, she saw him again, witnessing as the vehicle in front of her struck Houk, critically injuring him and sending him to Maryland Shock Trauma Center via helicopter.
