EXPLORING BALTIMORE: Today, Hamilton-Lauraville is in the midst of revitalization.

A drive down Harford Road today isn’t quite what it was in 1944, when “stores, schools, theaters, churches, office buildings, laundries, bowling alleys, hamburger stands and night clubs” dotted the street.

But commerce has kicked in again, making the area one of Baltimore’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.

Looking for a place to explore this weekend?  There are some great coffee shops and restaurants in Baltimore’s Hamilton-Lauraville neighborhood.

Mark your calendars for the Civic Hackathon “Coding for Community” which will be on campus 4/11 to 4/13.

When you rape, beat, maim, mutilate, burn, bury, and terrorize women, you destroy the essential life energy on the planet.
