As the Station North arts and entertainment district matures, community leaders are setting their sights on another long-promised part of the neighborhood's renaissance - market-rate apartments. The neighborhood, once a handful of nightspots surrounded by seedy parking lots, has grown into a small hotbed of restaurants, theaters and bars, with activity pushing up Charles Street and east and west along North Avenue and thousands flooding the area this summer for concerts and other events.

The distressing sight of boarded-up rowhouses along Druid Hill Avenue, between Baltimore's biggest park and North Avenue, makes it hard to believe that this decayed neighborhood was once home for many of the city's most successful African-American strivers. From the 1920s until the late 1940s, this was the famed Sugar Hill, the namesake of a similarly upscale part of Harlem. Prominent lawyers and educators lived in the modest, cramped two-story rowhouses near Druid Hill Park; so did waiters, bell captains and postal workers.

The 2 a.m. shooting where five people were wounded outside Odell's early Monday does not surprise us at all. Since 1976, when the late Odell Brock opened his night club in the first block of East North Avenue, half a dozen people have been slain outside, often in arguments over narcotics.In 1987, federal agents padlocked and confiscated the club after its then owner, Philip A. Murray, was arrested and convicted for his involvement in a major West Baltimore heroin ring. Much of that ring's money had been laundered through Odell's, prosecutors said.
