Another blighted property in East Baltimore, this one is on a block where people live. A small alley street not far from Penn Station, this little neighborhood has such potential. It’s a shame to see that the city owns this house, as we have little hope that anything good can come of that, given the city’s track record on vacant property thus far. We have to wonder what Jack Young plans to do for his constituents, and why slumlords operating in his district have come away with mere slaps on the wrist — if they’ve received any punishment at all. Don’t the residents of District 12 deserve better than that? We think so.
