It sounds like an oxymoron: a "green" parking lot. But behind the Visitors Center in downtown Annapolis is a new parking lot designed to be environmentally friendly. With six rain gardens, two solar-powered payment machines, recycled construction materials and a permeable surface, the lot is meant to be an improvement over its predecessor — better able to manage storm-water runoff and blend with the Historic District. An improved parking area was part of the city's plan for the Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Conference & Visitors Bureau's center that was overhauled a few years ago, as a way to provide short-term parking for visitors, businesses and stores on the section of West Street close to the tourist-laden Main Street hill.

She said workers there claimed she wasn't dilated enough to be admitted, however.  "They said I shouldn't come back until I couldn't talk through contractions," Noll said.

Two years ago I moved to Baltimore, where the roads are littered with pot holes (and litter) - I should know because I've had to circle them to find parking. Two of my housemates have had their cars broken into, my high taxes make my escrow payments exceed my mortgage, and a train bellows its horn in my neighborhood at all hours of the night. So it surprises me that in my first public request of this city, I am simply asking for it's leaders to do nothing at all. I am a 33-year-old professional, and I am a demographic that every city fights to have.

Bob Creager opened his tiny pit beef stand in the parking lot of a Southeast Baltimore nightclub in 1987. The stand had no electricity. Creager had never run a business. And the former steelworker had no idea how to cook pit beef. "I was struggling," Creager says. These days, Creager's establishment - Chaps Pit Beef - is a Baltimore legend. His stand, in the parking lot of the Gentlemen's Gold Club on Pulaski Highway, has been featured on national television shows five times.
