Keep your eyes on Charles North. The continually emerging neighborhood, much of which is contained within the Station North Arts and Entertainment District, was a 2013 hot spot with the openings of surprising new places like Bottega and The Crown, attracting appreciative crowds. Charles North continues to blossom, and three recently opened cafes - Red Emma's, Canteen and Nancy by SNAC - are welcoming the new year with plans to expand their hours, menus or both. Red Emma's (30 W. North Ave., 410-230-0450, redemmas.org)

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.

Regarding the officer who beat a citizen near North Avenue recently, both these men share guilt ( "Baltimore officer is suspended after video of beating is released," Sept. 16). The policeman was wrong for letting his emotions get in the way, and the individual was wrong to provoke him. Until Baltimore and the nation hold both the cops and the people they interact with responsible for their behavior, such conflicts are inevitable.

A fugitive wanted by police for questioning about a mass shooting in East Baltimore on Memorial Day turned himself in yesterday as family and friends gathered for the funeral of his 24-year-old girlfriend, who was killed in the gunfire. Shawn C. Henry, 23, is wanted in the attempted murder of a rival gang leader's wife - one in a string of violent acts committed by members of two warring gangs in recent months, Baltimore police said. The feud likely spawned the shooting of 12 people who were attending a party to remember a gang member slain last year, authorities say. Henry's girlfriend, Lakeisha Moten, was the only person killed.
