After years of publicity, fundraising, and galvanizing community support, Ping Pong Baltimore has accomplished one of its longtime goals: Installing a permanent ping pong table in Wyman Park Dell.

The idea arose out of community building workshops dating back to 2011, which happened to be attended by representatives from Friends of Wyman Park Dell, landscape architecture/urban design firm Mahan Rykiel Associates, and Ping Pong Baltimore: Why not put a ping pong table in the park? Fast forward three years, one successful online fundraising campaign, several grants, and lots of city paperwork later, and there’s now a ping pong table installed on a concrete pad near the corner of 29th and Charles Streets.

In Wyman Park, A Nice Little Row House

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Feb 14, 2012 3:00pm

HOT HOUSE: 3733 Keswick Road, Baltimore 21211

End-of-group brick townhouse built in 1927, in good condition. Three floors, 2,200 square feet, with four bedrooms, two full and one half baths, finished basement and rear mahogany deck : $ 274,900

What:  A basic row house, recently and nicely refurbished, which, in addition to the price and location, makes it an interesting proposition. Open floor plan and high ceilings add light and space. The kitchen is new, with Energy Star appliances, blonde wood cabinets and corian countertops. There are hardwood floors in the main rooms. Large finished ‘above-ground lower level’ has the fourth bedroom and custom storage.

Nearby properties are well-kept and tidy, with lots of trees. Neighbors seem to be proud members of the 99%, judging by the signs.   

Where: Keswick Road runs from Roland Park south across 40th Street and down through Hampden. This house is three blocks south of 40th Street and three blocks north of the Avenue, on the east side of the Rotunda. Hopkins has just purchased the large Zurich insurance building at the Rotunda, so it’s a good bet that with Hopkins as an anchor, and the mall owner shopping around for a boutique grocery store (Trader Joe’s?) to replace the Giant, eventual redevelopment of this area will raise property values all around.

 

Why: Affordable property in a safe, stable city neighborhood.   The open spaces of Wyman Park, famous for its dog walking areas, are just a two minute walk away. The fun shops and restaurants on the Avenue in Hampden are about five.

Why Not:  No really good public schools.

Who: Young professionals, or older with dogs.  JHU employees could walk to work from here.

NB: No central air.
