After dark on Greenmount Avenue, around 8, a few addicts, their gaits jumpy, scour Mund Park - "the square," as people there call it - looking for a fix. The dealers are there, too. Eye contact. The head nod. And they walk away from the courts where groups of young men play basketball - just far enough to avoid the view of the police camera affixed to a nearby pole, its blue light flashing. It's a scene not too different, if more muted, than in years past, when police swarmed this grim thoroughfare, says Marlowe Bellamy, 58, who knows well the Barclay and Midway neighborhoods that make up this pocket of East Baltimore.

Enhanced lighting for walkers in Waverly will draw the community closer and boost business along Greenmount Avenue, Mayor Martin O'Malley declared as he flipped a switch at dusk yesterday to reveal a series of green, retro-looking streetlights spanning four city blocks. "It may seem like a little thing," O'Malley said, standing on Greenmount near 34th Street, "but it's a big thing." The street-lighting improvement is part of Baltimore Main Streets, a revitalization program aimed at sprucing up the city's commercial corridors and districts.

I MET AN ANGEL on Greenmount Avenue. I swear to God. I walked up to him yesterday morning around 10 o'clock in a community garden near Chase Street. He was spreading compost at the time.Of course, I didn't know he was an angel. Not at first. Nothing about him said "angel."He did not have wings, for instance. He did not look cherubic. He did not look like Michael Landon. He did not look like Della Reese. He did not go by the name of Clarence. He did not wear gauzy white.In fact, he wore black - a black yarmulke, a long black cassock and shiny black shoes.

For their joint news conference on Thursday, the police commissioner and state's attorney of Baltimore chose Mund Park on Greenmount Avenue, where, they said, members of the Black Guerrilla Family and their associates held regular meetings. That moment was fraught with symbolism — top cop Anthony Batts, in uniform, and top prosecutor Gregg Bernstein, in a gray suit, reclaiming a public park from a violent gang. But the symbolism grows larger when you consider the place — Greenmount Avenue, between North Avenue and 25th Street — in the context of the long struggles of Baltimore: the riots of 1968, the white flight, the concentration of poverty, the rise in crime, the generally sad reputation of the area, and the long wait for transformative help.

Grace Willis sat in her front parlor and told me that her neighborhood, sometimes called Barclay or Greater Greenmount, is "just a wonderful place to live. " She would know, since she has lived at the corner of 22nd and Barclay for most of her life. She is known to her neighbors as the woman who likes to walk. On a walk, she showed me one of the reasons her neighborhood is the place she wants it to be. In the past few weeks, as promised, a fine-looking row of homes has risen on 20th Street.

The banner at Greenmount Avenue and Preston Street proclaims the Lillian Jones Apartments are coming. For the past year, I've watched this building take shape in a neighborhood that needed all the help it could get. Come spring, new tenants will begin moving into these 74 units of affordable housing. As City Councilman Carl Stokes told me, Greenmount and Preston had been a "horrible corner. " That's changed as work crews complete the apartment building and rebuild numerous adjacent rowhouses.

Once a place to wind down during retirement, Johnston Square Apartments, a gray, fairly new multistory apartment complex for seniors along Greenmount Avenue in East Baltimore, has become a safe house. "The majority of people in here stay in here," said Theo Taylor, who rents one of the more than 200 apartments limited to people age 60 and up. "Don't even go out. At dark, everyone files in here. Don't even come out. They just listen to the gunshots. " It wasn't always like this, said residents who live between the 1000 and 2000 blocks of Greenmount Ave., a half-alive commercial corridor interspersed with boarded-up rowhouses, Chinese restaurants and bail bonds services.

Some things don't change.Forty-six years ago, it was as unclear as it is now: Is Greenmount a village unto itself, or is it merely an appendage of Hampstead?A 1947 calendar for the old Greenmount general store, Dehoff and Rote, symbolizes the situation. At the bottom of the calendar are the store's Greenmount address -- and its Hampstead phone number.Over the years, the unincorporated town of Greenmount has been largely overshadowed by Hampstead to the south and Manchester to the north.Over time, Greenmount lost its general store, its school and its post office.
