The Great Fire of 1904, which started 101 years ago today, destroyed more than 70 blocks of downtown Baltimore, including 20 banks, eight hotels, nine newspaper plants and four lumberyards. Now one of the survivors will be restored for another century of use as part of the city's efforts to revitalize the west side of downtown. The Barenburg Building at 100 Park Ave., constructed in 1892 to house a bank and now home to Barenburg Eye Associates, will get a $150,000 face-lift this year to return its stone and brick exterior to the way it looked before the 1904 fire.

DARRELL BENNETT is watching. The mayor of Baltimore, Martin O'Malley, arrives in the 4600 block of Park Heights Ave., and Bennett has a beautiful seat from his little front porch. The mayor is here to trumpet his re-election campaign. Bennett is out there to unburden himself of a few truths. In his campaign announcement, the mayor takes a few bows: for reducing violent crime, for confronting narcotics traffickers. But he's made a shaky choice of geography for an occasion of self-congratulation.

Paul Blinken steps outside his Park Heights Avenue shoe store, just one block south of Pimlico Race Course, and sees four decades of decay that only slot machines at the racetrack can now reverse, he believes. But literally across the track, to the north, is the stable, solidly middle-class neighborhood of Mount Washington, with its many stately homes on large lots. To a growing number of residents, like Aaron Meisner, slots pose a threat to their quality of life and soaring property values.
