"Big" Max Taylor Jr. barely survived the Legionnaire's disease he contracted last year while living at a Baltimore retirement community for low-income seniors, but he's not sure his current existence quite qualifies as living. His speech is slurred, his balance is off, and he uses a walker to get from place to place — effects of the stroke he says was brought on by the Legionnaire's. He's had to move from Baltimore, where he was born and raised, to Charlotte, N.C., so his grown son, "Little" Max Taylor III, can tend to his basic needs.

Not far from where Johnny Unitas once went deep to Raymond Berry in front of cheering crowds at Memorial Stadium, visitors can now step into a considerably more tranquil patch of green space. The famous stadium on East 33rd Street has been replaced by Stadium Place, an ambitious urban revitalization project that includes a YMCA, new housing and ThanksGiving Place, a recently opened meditation garden. The 1-acre plaza, the centerpiece of an affordable-housing development, is intended as a place of spiritual refuge.

On the hallowed turf where Johnny Unitas passed his way into the Hall of Fame and the Orioles played their way into the World Series, where a future governor watched baseball with his dad and a mayor-to-be courted his future wife, a crowd gathered yesterday to witness what they called the new Miracle on 33rd Street. City and state officials and leaders of nonprofit, religious and community groups came together to dedicate the first pieces of Stadium Place, a $50 million development with senior housing and a YMCA on the site of the old Memorial Stadium.

A mosaic of multi-colored flowers spilling out of a silvery vase fills a wall at the entry to the new Green House Residences at Stadium Place in the city. Tiles of varying hues and textures form a perky yellow sunflower, a brilliant red rose, delicate pink blossoms and splashes of green and lilac. When Gina Rozier last saw the piece, it was a jumble of glass, granite and stones. Rozier, who will be working in the four-story senior-care center, was one of about 100 volunteers who put the mosaic together over the past several months.

A dozen neighborhood volunteers will spend their Presidents Day turning around a former city recreation center that new sponsors envision reborn as an education and community center. After 32 years, the Barclay Recreation Center shut down in August, a victim of budget cuts in the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. Neighborhood advocates believe the 7,500-square-foot facility, constructed immediately adjacent to the Barclay Elementary/Middle School in the 300 block of E. 29th Street, can find a new life on its own. They picture a location where both students and residents can have a town hall meeting, a safe after-school spot or a place to hold a birthday party or take a yoga class.

Four young men broke into a community center at Stadium Place in Waverly early Tuesday and stole a 60-inch television, a portable oxygen tank and food, and also damaged a vending and bank machine, Baltimore police said Wednesday. A spokeswoman for the Y of Central Maryland had said on Tuesday that the break-in was confined to the lobby of the building on East 33rd Street, the site of the old Memorial Stadium. She had declined to say if anything was taken, but said damage was quickly cleaned up. The police report details far more extensive damage, with surveillance cameras showing the men entering the building through an unlocked door to a pool pump room even as members of an overnight cleaning crew were working inside.
