It goes without saying that trying to find a parking space after work in many Baltimore neighborhoods is an aggravating, blow-your-horn and then your brains out adventure. So, of course, someone has figured out a way to make a buck off the misery. This ad showed up on Craigslist offering visitor passes to park in South Baltimore's Otterbein: "Pass is good for 1 year, expires 10-31-10. 2 block walk to TONS office buildings, 1 block to the harbor. Most parking places downtown are $100 plus a month, so this worth over $1200.

Roland Brown likes to remember old Leadenhall Street and the people who lived there when he was a child: the Harts, Miss Mary, Emma Jane. They're gone now — dead or moved away, many of them forced out decades ago to make way for a never-realized highway. Brown, 82, now lives on Montgomery Street in the house where his grandfather founded a funeral home in 1909. His front steps face south into Sharp-Leadenhall, a historically African-American community between Federal Hill and M&T Bank Stadium, where tidy alleyway rowhouses give way to empty warehouses, cracked sidewalks and grassy vacant lots.

Melissa Otterbein never has thought of herself as a world-class athlete, just someone who was persistent and worked hard to achieve her goals. At Towson University, where she was a member of the swimming team, Otterbein made the Colonial Athletic Association championships twice in her four years. Otterbein, who grew up outside Philadelphia and has remained in Baltimore after graduating four years ago, has another goal that appears a little more challenging: She is trying to get the Tour de France to hold a race for women.

The Otterbein's Family Bakery has changed a lot since it opened in Baltimore in 1881, from a modest storefront pastry shop to a factory operation that churned out about 7 million cookies last year for grocery stores and vending machines. But one thing hasn't changed: The sweet contents of Otterbein's red-and-white bags still are shepherded to market by the family that started it all. Mark Otterbein, who runs the Windsor Mill-based operation, represents the fourth generation of his family to run the bakery, which celebrated its 125th anniversary this month.
