I offer this advice to those who undertake a new walking tour of old Lauraville: Wear sensible shoes, take a map along and be prepared to learn stuff you never knew before. For starters, this Northeast Baltimore neighborhood is larger than I had imagined. It also has far more history than I was prepared to digest in the time I spent there. Lauraville is truly a city neighborhood of secrets waiting to be discovered. I learned it still has a building that served as a one-room schoolhouse dating from Lauraville's time as a Baltimore County village.

The problem: A temporarily patched hole in Lauraville grows larger as time passes. The back story: After at least six calls to 311 within five months about a hole that opened near a storm drain in the 2600 block of Goodwood Road, Anna L. Brown was fed up. A small gap appeared between the concrete alley and the road in the spring, and Brown saw it every day as she drove down the residential street leading out of her neighborhood....

Tooloulou is moving from Lauraville to Belvedere Square. The Cajun eatery will open in Belvedere Square's main market building later this spring, according to chef-owner Shawn Lagergren. Lagergren said he considered operating Tooloulou at both Belvedere Square and the Harford Road location that he opened in January 2011. But he decided he didn't want to entrust either location to anyone else. "We were going to try to keep [the Harford Road location] going," Lagergren said, "but if I can't be there every day, I would worry about potentially disappointing customers.

Restaurants pop up in Lauraville like spring onions. The stretch of Harford Road between Herring Run Park and the Safeway grocery store seems especially fertile. That is where Chef Mac's Louisiana Cuisine opened its doors last October, taking over a space once used by Alabama BBQ. It is a storefront with three tables and a handful of chairs that offer a view of Harford Road through the glass front. Chef Mac's full name is Maclonza Lee. He is a native of Alexandria. La., who worked in restaurants in St. Louis.

This weekend, Watchdog is giving thanks for some closure on previously unresolved issues. Update: More drivers are watching out when driving north on Pennington Avenue, thanks to new "wrong way" signs at each corner, reports Joseph Taylor. "I haven't been seeing a lot of cars coming up," he said. Taylor's Curtis Bay business is on Pennington Avenue, just north of its intersection with Birch Street, where it becomes a one-way, southbound road. He contacted Watchdog because "do not enter" signs kept getting knocked down at that intersection, and northbound drivers unfamiliar with the area would sometimes continue into oncoming traffic.

Sociologists looking for the quintessential neighborhood pub would be smart to park themselves at Koco's. This family-owned tavern in Lauraville not only serves up good local fare — excellent crab cakes and juicy wings — it is also embedded in this Northeast Baltimore community. As you walk in, the door signs tell customers not to park "above the alley," the parking area on a side street, set aside by custom for residents of nearby houses. Once inside, you walk past a kid's corner, an area stuffed with games and teeming, the night we were there, with neighborhood youngsters.

When Baltimore restaurateur Casey Jenkins opens the Birdland Sports Bar & Grill on Belair Road this month, it will be one of a few sit-down restaurants along the commercial strip. But he, and many others, hope it won't be the last. City, county and neighborhood groups are coalescing around efforts to revitalize the U.S. 1 drag, a corridor once known for its car dealerships and now a hodgepodge of rim shops, takeout joints and convenience stores. Some $5 million in city, state and federal money is being directed to street improvements, a first step to drawing new business to the area.

As friends shopped for an old-fashioned Baltimore peach cake, I considered the scene in Northeast Baltimore's Fenwick Bakery. I observed buyers ask for the crumb buns and doughnuts, raisin bread, Schmierkase cake and plain, Baltimore-style baked goods in what I thought was one of our more traditional food zones. After all, next door is Mueller's Delicatessen, famous for its German fixings, and across the street, Mastellone's Deli, the Italian grocery and wine shop. It is now high peach cake season in Baltimore.

I was happy to see the benefits of intermodal transportation for city residents so clearly described in a recent Sun commentary ("Put people ahead of cars," June 5). I've begun to see a transformation over the last decade in Baltimore, and I am encouraged that we may yet see more improvement in the future. As a daily commuter from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., intermodal transportation is a way of life for me. Each morning I set out from my Lauraville neighborhood to Penn Station by bicycle and catch the MARC train to Union Station.
