Baltimore has witnessed love and loss. From the banks of the harbor to Mount Vernon's cobblestones to the grassed-over burial plots of Greenmount Cemetery, embedded in this city are vestiges of some of history's great romances, stories of people coming together and people coming undone. Pamela Regis, a professor of English at McDaniel College and as director of the Nora Roberts Center for American Romance, something of a scholar of the heart, sees romance in the possibility suggested by the harbor, in people coming together and separating at Penn Station, in the centuries old neighborhoods where generations courted, married and grew families.

ALL THAT glitters is not gold. Sometimes it's merely cracked asphalt. The barren, broken parking lot behind Penn Station in Baltimore may not appear to be a treasure, but it contains some of the most valuable yet undeveloped real estate along the Amtrak corridor. The Charles North Community Association proposes landscaping this property and building an amphitheater, bringing green space, a dog park and live entertainment to a block most people ignore. This pastoral gathering place not only would be a gem for the immediate neighborhood but would also attract young people seeking music and theater.
