The problem: Bike Baltimore signs point the wrong way at a Reservoir Hill intersection. The back story: Mary Hayes lives in Reservoir Hill and passes through the intersection of Park Avenue and Whitelock Street frequently in her car. As a result, she had plenty of opportunities to be irritated by something she noticed there. A "Bike Baltimore" sign on the southeast corner directed cyclists to turn left onto Park Avenue. But Park Avenue actually continues north from that point, and a left turn would take you onto Whitelock Street.

Days before Healthcare for the Homeless was to open its new center on Baltimore's Fallsway, clients of the 25-year-old nonprofit already were lining up for services. Today, the organization will begin caring for them in its new $15.5 million, 60,000-square-foot building, which more than triples the space of its now-closed Park Avenue offices. "We are all so excited about this jewel of a building," policy director Barbara DiPietro said. "It will be so uplifting for our clients."

When Peter Goode walked out of his Hampden home about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, one of the first things he said he noticed on the wet and leaf-strewn street were parking enforcement officers apparently "looking for any type of violation they could find. " Given that the city had issued a travel restriction on driving for everybody but emergency personnel from Monday into midday Tuesday, the issuing of tickets struck Goode and other residents as unfair. He pointed out that many drivers had to get out of Sandy's path quickly, before they could find suitable parking spots in densely packed residential areas where parking is often tough to find.

The current discussion about building a new downtown arena is intriguing, but it has not focused on an even more promising opportunity: the chance for Baltimore to create a great new downtown park and anchor for economic development. Baltimore could follow the lead of resurgent cities like New York, Boston and Chicago, which have created or rejuvenated dynamic urban parks, attracting businesses, people and major private investment in downtown redevelopment. If we relocate the arena between Camden Yards and the Inner Harbor, Baltimore should seize the opportunity and create a new park to occupy the current arena site.

After a years-long search for new headquarters, the Shoshana S. Cardin School, Baltimore's only independent Jewish high school, has decided to stay put and construct new buildings on Park Heights Avenue next to the synagogue where it has been renting space since it opened in 2003. "I'm thrilled, I think it's a win-win for us and for the synagogue," said Barbie Prince, head of the school, where 56 students now take classes in space leased from Temple Oheb Shalom. The first phase of the plan would allow the school to accommodate 100 to 120 students, the second phase up to 250, she said.
