To live in—and love—this city, is to love its skyline. We may not have the most recognizable one in the world, but like the old song says, “the prettiest place on Earth is Baltimore at night.” We agree, of course. That’s part of why we live here. Our densely-packed cityscape is full of unique architecture and buildings that hearken back to some of the golden moments of American history. And when their windows light up at night, it’s certainly something to behold. Our rich legacy as a place where immense amounts of goods were produced and shipped is written all over this town.

On Friday, Baltimore businesswoman Tracey Halvorsen published an article on Medium that went viral and sparked an impassioned cyber-discussion about crime and class privilege in Baltimore City.
In Halvorsen’s heartfelt personal essay “Baltimore City, You’re Breaking My Heart” is a litany of local tragedies — mostly in Southeast Baltimore — and political headscratchers surrounding the city’s crime problem that could make a resident want to get the heck out.
It goes like this:
“I’m tired of living in a major crime zone while paying the highest property taxes in the state.”
“I’m tired of hearing about incompetent city leaders who are more fixated on hosting the Grand Prix than dealing with thousands of vacant buildings that create massive slums, and rampant crime.”
“I’m tired of checking in on neighbor and Baltimore Sun editor Jon Fogg’s Go Fund Me page to see if his family has met their goal to raise funds to help him recover from the brutal attack he suffered as he went from his car to his front door after work.”
Halvorsen calls Baltimore’s crime rate “the elephant in the room,” calls out city officials for willfully ignoring it, and prescribes “more cops” to curb it. Read More →
Chick-fil-A — the formerly anti-gay-marriage purveyors of bepickled chicken sandwiches are opening their first location in Baltimore City, likely in April. The restaurant is popping up at the Canton Crossing on Boston Street.
If you’re one of the first 100 adults in line on opening day — to be determined — you’ll receive 52 certificates for free Chick-fil-A meals. But be warned, if you’re used to McDonald’s Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the Chick-fil-A version might take some getting used to; apparently, they put their pickles under the chicken filet.

No matter how many times this kind of thing happens, it is always a shock. In the early morning of Jan. 14, Baltimore Sun editor Jon Fogg was walking from his car to his Canton home when he was attacked and robbed of his wallet, laptop, and car keys. Before fleeing in Fogg’s car, the unknown assailant beat him repeatedly in the head with a landscaping brick.
The attack left Fogg with “six skull fractures, eight to 10 missing and damaged teeth and four broken fingers,” according to his website. (You can tell this man is a newspaper editor; even with multiple skull fractures and both hands in splints, he adheres strictly to AP style.) Read More →

101 Ellwood Modern Apartments & Lofts has quickly become one of downtown Baltimore’s hottest new addresses. Since the property began accepting applications, over 50 of the 140 luxury apartment homes have been spoken for at this community.
Just steps away from 138-acre Patterson Park and within walking distance to Canton Square, location and value are generating high interest and a brisk leasing pace.
“People are moving here 100 percent because of the neighborhood,” says Shaffin Jetha, principal at Focus Development Group. “I think there are people who are picking this location with the park over places on the waterfront,” he says.
People are moving here 100 percent because of the neighborhood.
If the location were not incentive enough, the community boasts a list of amenities that are as unique as the building itself, including: a Zen courtyard, rooftop deck, a fitness center with yoga room, and a dog washing station. Many would argue the most attractive amenity is the attached parking garage with 146 spaces.
Original details were retained from the building’s history. There are hand-painted murals from the school’s library, classic wall-sized chalkboards, and solid oak book cases accenting various apartment homes. In contrast to, but surprisingly in harmony with the historical elements, upgraded finishes were chosen to please today’s discerning lifestyle renter including: wall-size windows, high ceilings, hardwood floors, ceramic tile, granite counters, solid wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and full-size washers/dryers in every apartment and loft home.
With a prime location and spectacular amenities you might expect lofty rents, but instead they are a surprising value. Rents begin at $1,200 for a 600-square-foot studio unit and go up to $2,300 for a 1,450-square-foot two-bedroom, two-story unit with a loft, a den and two bathrooms.
