We’ve written about these two homes so many times, as they’re both owned by shell companies controlled by Stanley Rochkind.  We have to wonder what kind of message the city is sending to this neighborhood, with their lack of action against the property owner.  We’ve been writing about these two houses since February of this year — and a few of the neighbors have filed multiple complaints. Yet here the properties are in their current state.  We wonder if Baltimore City is capable of doing any better than this.

Currently both homes have STOP WORK orders attached to them — and both homes are in terrible disrepair, and open to vagrants.  The windows and doors are broken — 1003 is completely open in the rear of the property, and has no roof.  The front door to 1005 has been off its hinges for at least two months, if not more.
