Most Saturday mornings find me inspecting progress as an 1873 cotton duck textile factory makes its $45 million transformation into 84 apartments, offices and two restaurants. Known as Mill No. 1, at 3000 Falls Road, the complex seems to sit astride an invisible line between Hampden and Remington. It's taken nearly two years for this exceptional Jones Falls Valley industrial landmark to take its bows. The first wave of tenants moved in earlier this year; Evergreen Health is the first large commercial tenant.

Hampden residents are threatening to leave their famous 34th Street Christmas lights off in an effort to get the city's attention after a recent string of violent crimes in the neighborhood. A 67-year-old man was attacked and beaten unconscious Monday afternoon while picking up trash from the sidewalk at the corner of Falls Road and West 36th Street, police said. Three hours later, a man with a gun held up a Subway restaurant on Falls Road. Bob Hosier, who claims to have started the Northeast Baltimore holiday tradition more than 60 years ago, said he worries about the safety of the tourists who flock each year to see the hub cap Christmas tree and big red lighted crab.

The Valley Inn, a landmark property on Falls Road near the city-county border, is back in business. Now operated by Ted Bauer, owner of the of the popular Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley, the Valley Inn has been revealing itself, quietly, in stages. First came a clubby bar, which opened in late January with an introductory menu of sandwiches and bar snacks. In late February, a traditional, wood-paneled dining room began serving a full dinner menu. Bauer acquired the Valley Inn in 2011 from John "Bud" Hatfield Jr., whose family had operated it for nearly 90 years.

The long and unconventional life of Charlie Barber ended quietly a week ago in his room at Stella Maris in Timonium. Although disinclined in life to ask for much at all, the soft-spoken man had asked for a glass of water, received it and soon after slipped away. He was by some accounts in his late 90s, by others more than 100. This biographical detail, along with others, remains vague. Homeless but not homeless, a presence in the lives of many people while not tied to family, occupation or property, Mr. Barber lived from one moment to the next, taking what fate brought his way. It could be a breakfast, then another breakfast the same day, several lunches strung together in an afternoon or a free drink or meal offered by a restaurateur.

There's not much better than downing an ice-cold beer on a hot summer day. But how about downing a really inexpensive ice-cold beer on a hot summer day? Yeah, that may be better. For our third annual survey, we again divided the city into four quadrants, called hundreds of Baltimore's biggest, posh-est, smallest and divey-est bars and asked for their best prices on bottles/cans, microbrews and happy hours. We're not against drafts, but we've eliminated that category this year because there wasn't much variation in price across the city.

Three light rail stations in North Baltimore — Mount Washington, Cold Spring and Woodberry — will be closed for three weeks of emergency repairs starting Friday as crews work to shore up significant track-side soil erosion, the Maryland Transit Administration said Wednesday. Rail service through the stations will be halted, and buses will shuttle riders between the Falls Road and North Avenue stations through July 11, the agency said. The closures overlap with a 13-game homestand by the Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards downtown and the Inner Harbor's annual Fourth of July celebration — two major drivers of transit use to and from the suburbs north of the city.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 25, 2014
It has been interesting to read the different opinions on naming Joppa. My wife and I had the privilege several years ago to go to Europe on a business award. It was interesting to learn as we drove around France that the local roads aren't named as in America but are really directions. When you come to an intersection you see arrowed signs that have the places they go to on them. So coming from opposite directions you might see a different name. Then I started to wonder is that what we did in the U.S. would assume over time instead of the road that goes to Bel Air it became Belair Road (Philadelphia road, Frederick road, etc….)
