When they bought their $82,000 home near Hollins Market three years ago, Tamara and Nathan Schoffer thought they were getting in on the ground floor of an urban neighborhood renaissance.Late last month, as they prepared to pack up their belongings into a U-Haul truck bound for New Jersey, Ms. Schoffer lamented that their home purchased through a state-backed program "has been such a disaster."The Schoffers said fleeing the neighborhood was their only recourse after house prices plummeted when the state foreclosed in July on 80 townhouses and apartments owned by New York developer Howard Loewentheil, a principal of the Hollins Townhouses and Market Mews limited partnerships.

The Hollins Market district in southwest Baltimore looks like an Aaron Sopher ink sketch from the 1940s. On a Saturday morning, produce vendors dip into wooden crates to sell their wares at Lombard Street and Carrollton Avenue. Women and their children and grandchildren emerge from the old market building with bulging shopping bags full of such items as tripe, sweet potatoes and chicken wings.The scent of fresh baked rye bread permeates the area.Generations who grew up in the Hollins Street neighborhood -- in the old parishes of St. Peter the Apostle, 14 Holy Martyrs, St. Luke's Carey Street and St. Martin's -- still return to the market for shopping even though they now live in Columbia, Ellicott City and Catonsville.

Disruptions to two underground electrical cables have left hundreds of residents in Fells Point and Canton without power or air conditioning as Baltimore experiences one of the hottest stretches of the summer and city officials warn of the potential for heat-related illnesses. On Tuesday morning, a blown fuse on an electrical line in the area of Poppleton and Hollins Market disrupted power to hundreds more. That outage has been fixed. In Fells Point, power was restored for about 380 customers by 1 p.m. Tuesday, though a separate problem — a blown overhead transformer — briefly knocked out power to 900 customers in the neighborhood again Tuesday evening, said Rachael Lighty, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman.

After two years, the original owners of Zella's Pizzeria on Hollins Street are coming back. Julie Ernst and Cem Ari opened Zella's in 2007. It found a loyal following and helped to anchor the struggling Hollins Market neighborhood. They sold the business in 2010, but it floundered without them and eventually closed. In 2011, Ernst and Ari opened Toss , a pizzeria near the Senator Theatre in Rosebank, where they reunited with some of their old patrons, who encouraged them to return to Hollins Market.

There are signs of renewal around Hollins Market, the west-side neighborhood whose fortunes have flowed and ebbed over the past few decades. The old Mencken's Cultured Pearl space on Hollins Street might be getting a new tenant soon. The Cultured Pearl flourished in the early 1990s, the neighborhood's heyday, and finally closed in 1998, after the demise of Gypsy's Cafe, the Market Cafe and the Tell Tale Hearth. In 2008, a Hollins Market booster opened Baltimore Pho in the Cultured Pearl space, in an effort, he said, to bring activity and interest back to the neighborhood.

John Houser III reviews Patrick's of Pratt Street, which claims to be the United States oldest Irishpub still in existence. Patrick's of Pratt Street was founded was established by the great great-uncle of its current owners in 1847 and has been in its current location since 1862. It has been in more or less continuous use as a public bar or tavern since. However, it has not always been called Patrick's of Pratt Street and for much of the time was not an Irish bar. Still. When I checked into this claim eight years ago, I could find no Irish bar in America with a convincing claim otherwise.  McSorley's in New York, in case you were wondering, was established in 1852.
