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.

One year after one of Baltimore's most violent summers, this July opened with one of the lowest midyear homicide counts in three decades. Killings declined in the first half of 2014 to 97 people, compared with 115 during the first half of last year, when police worked to quell violence as 40 people were shot in a span of two weeks, including 20 over a single weekend. This year's pace puts it on track with a multiyear decline that ended in 2012. While Baltimore remains one of the most violent major U.S. cities - a toddler was killed early Tuesday - police officials have credited several initiatives with helping to reduce homicides, including more patrols in violent areas.

A 26-year-old man was fatally shot outside Hollins Market on Friday just as children from a nearby elementary school were being let out. Just before 2:30 p.m., a police officer on patrol was flagged down by a resident and directed to the 1100 block of Hollins St., where the officer found Tyrone Mcnair, of South Arlington Street, Baltimore police spokesman Det. Jeremy Silbert said. The man was shot at least once and transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police initially believed the victim was a juvenile but a relative and acquaintance confirmed that he was an adult.

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.

Food *** (3 STARS) Service *** (3 STARS) Atmosphere *** (3 STARS) In the evening, Baltimore Pho is a bright oasis in the deserted Hollins Market area. During the day, the market may be bustling; but at night the neighborhood is quiet, and you notice the empty sidewalks and boarded-up storefronts. (No parking worries here.) Then suddenly you spot the colorful facade of the city's newest Vietnamese restaurant. The owners took their time to renovate what was Mencken's Cultured Pearl. They did a good job of it, creating a serene space in red, black and white.

Named for its two dominant old features, the Union Square-Hollins Market Historic District is known for the shady park across the street from H.L. Mencken's home as well as the oldest public market building in Baltimore that is still in use. These days, the community, which lies less than a mile from Camden Yards and has easy access to major roads, is diverse ethnically, in age, by income and by occupation. Its wide streets are lined with brick homes of varying sizes dating mostly from the mid-to-late 1800s, many retaining original decorative architecture.

It's hard to imagine the thriving neighborhood shopping district that once extended along West Baltimore Street on the western fringe of downtown Baltimore. The 19th-century buildings ended their existence here as secondhand shops, offering items like dented washing machines. In the past nine years, the University of Maryland BioPark has taken the place of those tattered retailers. The transformation offers some lessons in the way cities handle change. The biopark may be geographically separate from what we think of as the University of Maryland's main downtown campus, with its hospital, medical, dentistry, pharmacy, social work and law schools.

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.

You might not be thinking about farm-fresh produce in January, but the Maryland Department of Agriculture says now is the right time to check into joining a community-supported agriculture program. Members of a CSA pay an upfront subscription fee to farmers in return for a share of the season's harvest, which is usually provided weekly. Many CSAs deliver to central locations for pickup on a certain day of the week. Still others have special rates if the subscriber helps with the harvest on the farm.
