Starting about 1925 and working for a few decades, developer Edward J. Gallagher and his sons built a Baltimore community of sturdy homes with a bit of green space for the emerging middle class. Gallagher's early notion was to create a stylish English-type of village in the city. The concept remained, though he went from the Tudor and Norman styles popular at first to the Colonial designs that were in vogue as the worst of the Great Depression ended. Gallagher named his village for his sons, Edward and Norman.

The last homes on the south side of the 3900 block of The Alameda in Northeast Baltimore are almost identical. They are split-level structures, built in 1957, with two bedrooms and one bath. They share similar narrow driveways, rolling front lawns - and grieving families. Both were homes to homicide victims and their families this year. In the yellow home to the left live relatives recovering from the loss of Terry Junior Davis, 48, a registered nurse shot in the head in his room in February.

It was a sad day for Reba Bullock when the Orioles played their last game at Memorial Stadium in 1991. "I liked listening to `Ed-die! Ed-die!' said Bullock, a 30-year resident of Ednor Gardens-Lakeside, recalling the years when home-run hitting Eddie Murray played first base. After Memorial Stadium closed in 1997, the Northeast Baltimore neighborhood went through a period of uncertainty. The stadium had been the neighborhood's anchor, and residents feared the worst. Property values decreased, and some decided to leave, selling for less than they had paid.

Two city water meter readers turned in phony numbers in at least two neighborhoods in recent months, the Department of Public Works acknowledged Tuesday, leading to more inaccurate billing by an agency that has been troubled by aging infrastructure and high error rates. As the Bureau of Water and Wastewater tries to correct the mistakes, residents who were undercharged are seeing a spike in their water charges - and officials say they must pay. The latest twist in the city's water billing problems, which have affected at least one in 10 local homeowners, did not go over well in the North Baltimore neighborhood of Homeland, where residents were already angry about the unusually high charges.
