More specifically, to West Mulberry Street, where a Hostelling International Travel Center opened March 4 on the site of the Baltimore International AYH Hostel.The Travel Center is an all-purpose resource center where aspiring adventurers can book discount flights, buy Eurail passes and travel packs, peruse guide books and seek advice on budget travel. "You can have it all here," says Joelle Porter, manager of the Baltimore hostel.Most important, the Travel Center, part of a network of American Youth Hostels and Travel Centers, serves as a way to broadcast the glories of hostelling, a means of travel that "people here still haven't heard of," Ms. Porter says.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum today looks onto a tree stump and a grassy lot, but that view could soon change with the construction of two large, orange-accented apartment buildings. It's the first phase of a long-awaited redevelopment of the Poppleton area. The go-ahead last week from the city's urban design and architecture review panel is one of the first steps forward since ambitious plans to overhaul a 13.8-acre portion of the neighborhood were announced almost a decade ago. Just west of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, the $800 million, 10-year redevelopment of Poppleton is supposed to build on the expansion of the University of Maryland's BioPark and ultimately create more than 1,000 residential units, a new charter school, shopping and parks in a neighborhood once riddled with crime and drug activity.

He's across the Atlantic from his native Ireland, but Ken Keady was wearing the green Sunday as he bobbed his 3-year-old daughter on his shoulders to see Baltimore's St. Patrick Parade. "It's a great occasion, a lot of color, a lot of flags and lot of music. I come every year," said Keady, now of Towson, with daughter Carolyn waving the Irish flag above his head. Keady pronounced Baltimore's parade as "one of the best I've ever seen" - and he's seen them in Dublin, he said. The Keady family was among thousands of people lining the route for the kilted bagpipe bands and eye-popping string bands, dance troupes, students, classic cars, floats and more.

A violent start to the year continued with three people shot on Baltimore's west side Tuesday morning, including a 17-year-old girl who died after she and a man were shot in an alley. Though the city started the year with almost 11 days without a gun homicide, it belied a string of nonfatal shootings that was higher than the beginning of 2012. Five people were killed last weekend, and the city has started off 2013 with a 65 percent increase in gun violence compared with the same time last year.

The late Morris Martick closed Martick's Restaurant Francais, his legendary Mulberry Street restaurant, in 2008 after a memorable 38-year run. Now, Martick's is coming back -- as a speakeasy. The operators of the speakeasy are Morris Martick's surviving brother, Alex, his nephew, Steve Shockett, and Brooks Bennett. Shockett said he and his partners hope to have Martick's Speakeasy open by early February. In that it will be a licensed, legal establishment, Martick's will not run as a literal speakeasy but as one of the new breed of drinking establishments that celebrate the speakeasy spirit with classic cocktails and trappings, like hidden entrances and minimal signage.

Lillian Duckett was a teenager when Baltimore officials bought the Mulberry Street home she shared with her eight siblings, parents and grandmother, and then tore it down. The Ducketts were among the nearly 3,000 residents who were uprooted from their predominantly black West Baltimore neighborhood four decades ago to make way for a highway project to connect Interstate 70 with I-95. But construction stopped nearly as soon as it began, leaving a concrete bridge that rises near the site of the Ducketts' former home and ends abruptly in a grassy slope.

Morris Martick - master of French cuisine, living legend and the most stubborn and eccentric restaurateur in Baltimore - claims he has closed his famously unusual and critically acclaimed maison on West Mulberry Street after 38 years. He laid off his last waitress and kitchen helper last week. He's made his last pot of sweet potato soup. You can't order Martick's bouillabaisse anymore. He's done. C'est la fin. "For real?" I ask. "What's the point?" Martick says with a shrug. "I'm 68 and a half years old."
