East Baltimore

Baltimore is a city of great potential. These photos were taken on two dates.  The first set, of the construction, was taken on the first Monday of June on my way to the Southeastern District Community Relations Council meeting.  The scene is across the street from the police district and a fire house.  A multiple purpose development is being built.  There will be commercial, office space, retail, and residential.

Less than a mile away is St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and Greektown.  For those of us who rely on public transportation, the BL and OR buses would take us to the West MARC station as well as to the subway and light rail.  They will also take us close to Holy Trinity and St. Andrew churches.  The OR will also take us to East Point Mall.

A bus driver commented that there will also be places to get lunch there.  Right now there is just a greasy pizza place in walking distance.  There are several great Greek restaurants in Greektown.

The photos in the Eastern District were taken during a ride-along with a police officer.  The Baltimore Police Department encourages citizens to do a ride-along.  Some officers prefer not having a ride-along, but most seem to prefer it, especially if they know that we are there to support them.   This has been very rewarding for me.

In June 2019 I did a ride-along and noticed a sign has been removed but the bottom of the post was still sticking out of the ground.  A year earlier I did a 3-1-1 request to have it corrected, but nothing was done.  I found the photo which I took and sent it to City Councilwoman Shannon Sneed.  I could not do it on-line since I could not find an address.  Her office took care of it immediately.

I looked at buying a house two doors north of this park on Conklin Street in the Southeastern District.
