ELLIS ISLAND, N.J. - A few yards away from the 2 million tourists who visit the restored immigration museum here each year lies the south side - the dark side - of Ellis Island. The nearly 30 buildings on New Jersey's side are filled with mold, vines, poison ivy, paint chips, and bird droppings accumulated over the decades. Mainly former hospital buildings and isolation wards for immigrants who carried diseases or who were mentally ill, many reached the point of near-collapse. Park Service plans Now, under a multiphase project to stem the deterioration, the National Park Service has stabilized six of the buildings, which have been off-limits to the public.

Hersh's Pizza & Drinks is the modest and unassuming name Josh and Stephanie Hershkovitz, brother and sister, gave to their Riverside neighborhood restaurant. And yes, the restaurant serves pizza - wonderful and surprising wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, topped with prime ingredients like homemade mozzarella, woody oyster mushrooms, braised fennel and guanciale, a prized cured meat made from the pork cheeks or jowls. And it's true that there's a smart cocktail program, with a welcome focus on aperitifs and digestifs, those things that wake up your taste buds before a hearty meal and settle your system afterward.

The Southside, a tangy cocktail made with mint, citrus juices and secrets, is an old-line favorite. It appears in the spring at tailgates in the Maryland hunt country and is still stirring at late-summer, white-shoe gatherings. Once served almost exclusively at private clubs, the cocktail has entered the public domain. Anyone of age now can enjoy a Southside by simply buying a mix and adding ice, rum, gin or vodka, and perhaps some club soda. Membership not required. Recently, I bought a bottle of Lindsay's Southside Mix, then compared the beverage it produced with the Southsides of Andy Ervin, the 85-year-old bartender at the Elkridge Club, and George Lee, the 87-year-old former bartender at the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club.

The north side of Cross Street Market has long outpaced the south side. MaGerks, Ryleigh's, the Stalking Horse and the 8x10 have made the north side a viable and attractive destination. But the south side has been lacking a bona fide anchor establishment to help spur activity. Now it has one. Social Pub & Pie opened in late July in the first block of East Cross Street, and the block already feels safer and more solid. Social Pub & Pie — as in pizza pie — is a double-wide.

With her North team leading the South by four goals with four minutes remaining in Saturday's Girls Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic, Tatum Coffey maintained her composure as a double team rushed toward her. After tallying five goals — all unassisted — the midfielder from Toms River, N.J., sat one goal shy of tying the single game mark set last year by Kaitlyn Brosco, a tidbit she was unaware of at the time. Coffey, who would be named the game's MVP, looked up and connected with a wide-open Lindsay Toppe on the left side of the fan. Toppe drove toward the crease and pocketed the game's final goal with 3:49 left as the North team dominated second half action, outscoring the South eight to three in the last half, to capture the Classic for the fifth time in six years, 15-10, at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson.

When Lyndsey Munoz got the call to play for the North team in the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic, it took a minute to sink in. North? Isn't her school, St. Mary's in Annapolis, pretty far south? "I was like, 'Cool,' when he told me I made the team. It didn't even register with me that everybody else was on the South team," Munoz said. Every other player from Maryland is on the South side for Saturday's fifth annual Classic at 5:30 p.m. at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium, but a glut of goalies shifted Munoz north.
BUSINESS

A winding road narrows in St. Mary's County toward the tip of a peninsula. Here, a partially hidden entrance with a sign that reads "St. Marie's" heralds the home of Loretta "Tiny" and Francis Taylor. It is an enchanted, short ride up the driveway, which is bounded on both sides by verdant lawns, toward the main Georgian-style house. Against its white siding and three tall columns of its portico, myriad flowers and blossoming trees burst forth in colors both pale and bold. A brick walk leads to the home's front door, providing the first, brief glance of water before entering the interior foyer.

Matt Bjonerud is the young, urban professional who opened his Baltimore rowhouse to a homeless couple last winter. They're still with him this summer. The man still panhandles. But his wife found a job. They no longer sleep in a tent. That's progress. The first time I told you about Bjonerud - it was in March, Easter Sunday - he had just brought the couple in from the cold. They had been living in a ramshackle encampment of homeless people adjacent to a parking lot on an industrial backstretch on the city's south side - far out of sight of most of us, except for when they panhandled on Russell Street.

TRAVEL

CLARIFICATION An article in Sunday's Travel section gave the impression that Chiodo's Tavern in Pittsburgh was open for business. The bar closed in 2005. THE SUN REGRETS THE ERROR THOMAS WOLFE SAID YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN, but if somebody offers you $500 to try, it can be worth the trip. "Five-hundred bucks?" an old Pittsburgh friend asked. "They are giving you 500 bucks to do Pittsburgh? You could buy the whole town for two grand." Not anymore, I said.
