For more than a century, they've lived on William Street in South Baltimore, a constant presence in a neighborhood that has undergone several re-inventions. But this month, the Gerbers are leaving, selling the Federal Hill house they have owned and occupied since 1900, the year it was built in what was then, and is again today, a thriving area near the water. When the house officially changes hands this month, it will be the passing of an age. "I'm the only one left, and I can feel everyone in the room with me," says Lillian Agnes Gerber Venrick.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are touring Canada this week, and I imagine it's slightly less exciting than when the Beatles came across the pond back in the day. On Tuesday, Prince William, with new bride Kate Middleton standing on the sidelines, picked up a stick and challenged a 20-year-old Canadian goalie to a street hockey shootout. He was as bad at hockey as you would expect a British prince to be. [ Via Deadspin ]

For three Federal Hill couples, the journey to becoming landlords began at a New Year's party on William Street welcoming in 2004. After moving as renters from San Francisco's super-inflated housing market, new homeowners Marty Marren and wife, Susan Kim, excitedly watched Baltimore's housing renaissance: vacant or aging houses bought low, rehabbed, then sold high or kept as investment rental properties. "We should do this," urged their fellow William Street neighbor and homeowner, Matthew Cimino, 36, who is married to Alexandra Pratt, 27, a physician.

Trouble in a feeder line was blamed for a power blackout last night that affected nearly 2,000 Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. customers in southern Baltimore neighborhoods, a spokesman for the utility said. The problem occurred shortly after 9 p.m. when an underground feeder line at William Street, near Key Highway, failed for an unknown reason, said BGE spokesman Arthur Liebno. An employee of Hartlove's, a tavern in the 600 block of E. Fort Ave., said it was still without electricity at 10:30 p.m. But across the street, a barmaid at Captain Larry's said it was not affected.
