East Baltimore Scenery

Progress is coming to East Baltimore. Johns Hopkins is one of the largest employers in the City and also a top leading medical center in the world. East Baltimore can only benefit if Johns Hopkins grows.

The first two pictures tell a major problem in some sections of Baltimore.  You can easily see the trashcan.  That white by the step is a dirty diaper.  This is a major problem in the City and when somebody tried to raise this issue at a recent IMA meeting, he was cut off in favor of a discussion about Ferguson.

Three blocks away you see some progress.  The houses in the 2400 block of East Eager were demolished and a park will be built there.  I do not have any details.

As I was walking along the site of the future park, I saw that the houses on Montfort Avenue are also being demolished the same way that those on East Eager Street were demolished.    I have no idea what is going to go in their place.
