The Emerson Mansion, a grand but dilapidated Reservoir Hill landmark built by the inventor of Bromo Seltzer, sold at auction today for $460,000 to real estate developers who intend to restore it.

Baltimore truly is the Charm City—and never is that more apparent than when our gardens and trees are in full bloom, and the early summer sun dapples the city just so, accenting the remarkable architecture that’s around almost every corner. Thankfully, this is also the season when many of our most beautiful historic neighborhoods make themselves available through walking home and garden tours—with residents eager to show off their blocks in all their blooming glory. This year marks the 20th annual home and garden tour in historic Reservoir Hill, and it takes place June 7th and 8th. Save those dates. Read More →

Whether you’re just looking to burn off some of last night’s glug and goose or planning for a 2014 fitness jumpstart, you can find some support by joining the 7th District Get Fit Challenge, spearheaded by Councilman Nick J.

Was it all a well-lit dream? We called them and they came to our house last week, free of charge: a young man and woman with energetic minds, energy-efficient ideas, and a big, fat supply of compact fluorescent lightbulbs.

The next day, we still had our CFL bulbs in place! So clearly these bright-eyed lightbulb kids were real. Wait, it gets better. Read More →
