Studio tour features Highlandtown

WHAT'S HAPPENING ✦ City-wide

BY ERIK ZYGMONT

Calling All Zombies: This Friday, Oct. 25, Banner Neighborhoods is hosting a performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” at Library Square, adjacent to the Patterson Park Branch of the Pratt Library, N. Linwood Ave. and E. Fayette St. This is a community event, with lessons beginning at 7 p.m. and the live show starting at 8 p.m. A Halloween dance party follows. The evening also features children’s events, including a school supply giveaway, pinata, zombie dress-up and more. Free. Info: 410-5858810 or bannerneighborhoods.org.

Last weekend’s citywide Open Studio Tour, put together by School 33, brought a large amount of arts patrons to Highlandtown, especially for Friday night’s Discover Creative Conkling Street gallery-crawl and party. “There were a lot of people here,” said Hillary Figinski, owner of Gallery@3522, 3522 Bank St. “We had a really good turnout.” Not only was it a large crowd, but it was an “engaged” crowd, Figinski added. “When people came in the room and Agnes (Arnold) and I started talking, people actually listened,” she said.

Leaf collection: The city will be collecting bagged leaves every Monday from Oct. 28 through Jan. 6. Solid waste crews will collect up to 20 bags from each address every Monday; call 311 before 10 p.m. on Sunday to schedule pickup. Additionally, crews will pick up five bags of leaves from each address on that address’s regular trash pick-up day. Use clear or labeled bags. See our complete Community Calendar on pages 6 & 7.

If anything was dropped or left behind by the soldiers and residents who grabbed their guns, dug in and faced down would-be British invaders on Sept. 13, 1814, Baltimore Heritage hopes to find it. Next summer, the historic and architectural preservation organization will be conducting an archaeological dig at the site of that defense line, which ran through Patterson Park, the northwest portion of which was then known as Hampstead Hill.

Neighbors near Griffin Ct. alley at Portugal St. in Upper Fell’s Point are trying to get a section of Portugal St. gated to help keep out vagrants, whom they claim are disturbing their neighborhood. The alley gating process, according to Jeff May, Upper Fell’s Point Improvement Association president, was started by a neighbor about a year ago and if successful, will result in gates blocking off access to the area between Portugal and Regester streets and Portugal and Griffin Ct. According to the city’s Department of General Services’ Alley Gating and Greening program, residents who want to limit access to their alleys to eliminate noise, unwelcome vehicles, or loitering may ask the city to evaluate whether their alley is eligible. Generally, alleys are eligible for gating if the adjacent structures are mostly residential; if the alley is no longer needed for through pedestrian or vehicular traffic; and if the gating will promote public health, safety, or welfare. May says the neighbors believe the gates would help keep out the vagrants who use this stretch of Portugal St. for a toilet, drug use, sex, and other inappropriate behavior. They have documented the behavior on video and are tired of dealing with the feces, needles, condoms, clothes, and other litter. The process of gating an alley can be lengthy and, according to the General Services Web page, public safety is the first and foremost consideration in the approval process. If the alley is given preliminary approval, residents must fill out an application and send a $250 application fee. According to the alley gating Web page, property owners abutting the alley will be asked to sign a consent form, after which the

community enters into a lease agreement with the city. Approval from the local fire station is also required. May says that he believes the Upper Fell’s neighbors need signatures from 80 percent of property owners. “There is a consent form and the signature also has to be witnessed,” May says. It has taken a while to obtain the signatures, May says, because one of the property owners was abroad for several months and another recently died. May believes that 13 properties abut the alley and that the neighbors have eight signatures so far.  “I believe we need 11, and three are pending,” he said. He says that Councilman Jim Kraft’s office is assisting the neighbors with the process. Regarding the gates themselves,  May says the neighbors have only begun to explore their options.  “But we definitely want one that is not scalable,” he said. May estimates that the gates would need to be at least 10 feet wide and seven feet tall and made of iron or aluminum. Tentatively, the aluminum gates would cost between $1,800 and $2,200 each, and the iron ones between $3,000 and $5,000 each, for a total of between $6,000 and $10,000 for both gates, he said. The community is responsible for all fees associated with the work, including engineers’ drawings, permits, the cost of the gates, and the cost of their installation. “We need to seek out grant funding,” May said.  “The city won’t being paying for any of this.” Other steps in the gating process include public notice, a public hearing, and approval by the Baltimore City Board of Estimates. Sixteen alleys have been gated since the city founded the alley gating program in 2008. A gated alley just east of Broadway would eliminate nuisance behaviors, say residents. | Photo by Erik Zygmont

Harbor Point developers to answer questions on environmental impact by erik zygmont EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Postponed earlier this month, a meeting to answer lingering environmental questions some nearby residents and business owners have on the Harbor Point development has not yet been rescheduled, due to scheduling conflicts with the EPA. The meeting—when it occurs—will include representatives from the development team for Harbor Point, Honeywell, the Maryland Department of the Environment and the EPA. The original meeting was postponed due to the federal government shutdown, during which the EPA ceased certain functions, including attending that meeting. The meeting, Kraft said, will include a Q-and-A session in which citizens may direct their questions to any of the parties represented at the meeting, including the development team from Beatty Development Group, Honeywell, and the federal and state environmental agencies. Honeywell has been responsible for cleaning up and monitoring the chromium-contaminated site. According to epa.gov, the Allied Chemical Company acquired the 27-acre site in 1954. Allied eventually acquired Honeywell, and took on that company’s recognizable name. a lt i m o re BG UIDE 526 S.

The meeting format would be similar to last fall’s Patterson Park meeting, during which residents grilled then acting Recreation and Parks director Bill Vondrasek about a leaked city proposal that added 96 parking spaces to the park. “The developer will put forward their presentation,” said Kraft. “Honeywell will then put forward what they’ve done. Then questions can come...Basically it’s going to be any question that anyone poses.” Kraft said that the meeting will continue “until we get these questions asked and—the agreed-upon word was ‘reasonably’— answered.” A group of residents and businesses owners from Fell’s Point—which borders the development—has recently publicly scrutinized the environmental aspects of the development. Kraft noted that Baltimore Sun reporter Timothy Wheeler had also posed some questions. “We want to get the questions answered,” Kraft said. “Our purpose is not to give speeches.” At a Fell’s Point Residents Association meeting in May, Jonathan Flesher of the Beatty Development Group said that the buildings on the site would be constructed on “pile”

foundations, a building system in which foundation components are driven down, rather than dug, into the earth. The MDE and EPA would be onsite to monitor the construction and the air quality, he added. Roughly the wester 2/3 of the site is “capped,” or sealed to prevent the spread of chromium contamination. According to epa.gov, a consent decree requiring the clean-up of the site specified that chromium dissolved in surface water on the site not exceed 50 parts per billion, and that the groundwater level inside the containment area be 0.01 feet lower that the water level outside. “AlliedSignal, (now Honeywell), remains perpetually responsible for maintaining the containment structure and monitoring the environment around the property,” states the website. When the first meeting was postponed, Kraft requested to the Beatty Development Group that work not be started on the site until the meeting is held. “They’ve told me personally they would not move forward with the groundbreaking until that time,” Kraft said. A representative from the councilman’s office said that it could be a couple weeks before the meeting is held.

Last Wednesday, the Department of Public Works closed a period for comment on a stormwater waiver requested by the Harbor Point developers. The waiver—which is concerned with stormwater control but not the city’s new stormwater fee—would apply to 6.9 acres of the 27-acre site, located at the intersection of Lancaster and Caroline streets. While developers of a new property in Baltimore City must provide stormwater control for 100 percent of impervious areas of the development, developers of a previously developed site must control the stormwater from 50 percent of the site’s impervious area, or reduce the site’s impervious area by 50 percent, or combine the two measures. Kimberly Burgess, division chief of surface water management for DPW, said that any redevelopment on which 40 percent of the preexisting surface is impervious can qualify for the waiver. “At least 40 percent of the site must be impervious,” said Burgess. “That’s all the developer ever has to show.” If the redevelopment site has undergone and environmental clean-up, as Harbor Point has, then DPW will decide whether to grant the waiver based on the last development prior to the clean-up.

Liquor Board update: Confetti’s revocation upheld; Honey’s called before board by DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Club Confetti, 1609 Bank St. in Upper Fell’s Point, which had its license revoked by the Baltimore City Board of Liquor License Commissioners in June, had its revocation upheld this past week, exhausting the nightclub’s appeal options. The bar had lost its license for multiple violations of disturbing the peace. In July, Club Confetti requested and was denied a stay on the revocation. The Liquor Board may grant a “stay”—or allow a licensee to remain open pending an appeal of a revocation—at its discretion. Said Liquor Board chairman Stephan Fogleman in June, at the original hearing: “There is too much police involvement at this bar. There is too much noise at this bar. It has more noise problems than a bar twice its size. Every year they are disturbing the peace. This is happening on a regular basis. It’s injurious to the neighborhood.” Victor Corbin, president of the Fell’s Prospect Community Association, was pleased the board’s June decision was upheld last week. “The residents of both Douglass Place Neighborhood Association and Perkins Homes are very happy that the judge ruled to affirm the decision by the board. It’s made a world of difference at night. We are able to sleep with our windows open: no more fights,

noise, or public urination. We are sorry it had to come to this; however ... the revocation is the best thing to happen to our block,” Corbin said. Another Upper Fell’s Point bar, Honey’s Lounge, 1722-1724 Gough St., was called before the Liquor Board on Oct. 17 to discuss renovations the Board approved in March of 2013. The licensee of the BD-7 tavern (a seven-day tavern) is Nidia Sierra. The meeting was postponed at the request of Honey’s counsel because they needed more time to prepare. The meeting will be rescheduled, but is not on the Liquor Board docket at this time.  Neighborhood residents had commented that, following the renovation approval, Honey’s seemed to operate more as a de facto liquor store than as a tavern. Also last week, the liquor license for 807 S. Broadway (currently occupied by the cocktail bar Rye), transferred ownership. An application for transfer was filed on May 8, according to Douglas Paige, acting executive secretary at the Board. The applicant is Ming Hoang, and the Board approved the request for transfer on Oct. 17. Hoang had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Fells Point Community Organization. The MOU stated that there would be no live entertainment unless a separate MOU were established, and there would be no expansion of the establishment to any adjacent building.

8 BALTIMORE GUIDE

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2013

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

An undisturbed, undeveloped battlefield, smack in Southeast Baltimore Johns Hopkins, executive director of Baltimore Heritage (and a collateral descendant of the famous philanthropist and abolitionist for whom the hospital and university are named), said that he and colleagues were trying to come up with a special activity to mark next year’s Bicentennial of the Battle of Baltimore when the dig idea was conceived a little over a year ago. “We thought, ‘We can’t do that—I’m sure somebody’s already done that,’” said Hopkins. “The ‘aha moment’ came when we found out that nobody’s done a War-of-1812 dig in Patterson Park.” A quick summary of the on-land portion of the Battle of Baltimore, which occurred from Sept. 12-15: About 5,000 British troops landed by sea and marched up Dundalk’s North Point peninsula with the intent to take Baltimore City by land. About 5 miles from the city, they were met by 3,000 American troops and militia under the command of Gen. John Stricker. Though they lost the battle in a technical sense, the Americans managed to stall the British and kill their commander, Gen. Robert Ross. Thanks to the delay at North Point, the Americans had time to complete their defenses at Hampstead Hill. When the arguably demoralized British arrived, they saw 100 cannons; 10,000 regular troops; and a few thousand militia men making a line of defense from the Canton Harbor to a couple miles north. Ah, no thanks. They turned around and went back to the ships. Hopkins notes that Patterson Park was carved out for preservation soon after the war, making conditions ideal for archaeology. “It has never been churned up for roads, row houses, or mined for water or whatever,” he said. “It’s pretty unusual, especially in an urban area, to have 200-year-old defenses that haven’t been whacked by backhoes.” Hopkins would like to assure everyone that there will be no backhoe-whacking during the dig itself, either. “It will be the least invasive archaeological dig possible,” he said, adding that diggers would use hand tools and cart their stuff around on the Friends of Patterson Park’s electric buggy. “We’re digging 2-foot by 2-foot test pits. This is not like in Egypt or looking for dinosaurs.” Hopkins said that for each test pit, the sod will be cut out and put aside, and dirt will be piled next to the hole. When the process is complete, the dirt will be returned to the hole and capped with the original sod.

“It’s going to look like nothing happened,” he said. Don’t expect anybody to deny the public access to the park, either. On the contrary, Hopkins said that he would like to see public participation on a scale akin to what occurred on Hampstead Hill 200 years ago. “If you were a Baltimore citizen, these guys were coming in, and they were going to burn your house,” he said. “I don’t know if this is an exaggeration, but almost every soul in Baltimore participated in the defense. Every color, slaves, free African Americans; you had wealthy and day-laborers. The city just came together for that defense.” So the people behind the project—which, in addition to Baltimore Heritage, is supported by the Friends of Patterson Park, the Southeast Community Development Corp. and the Creative Alliance—will “shout out as loud as we can to get as many people as possible to participate, take tours, learn, celebrate, and literally get their hands dirty,” Hopkins said. Schools, neighborhood associations, and the public at large will be invited to take part.

Hopkins said that digs will be scheduled for off-work hours so nine-to-fivers can participate, as well. While “getting your hands dirty” is the meat of the archaeological process and fun, it will not be the only component of the Patterson Park project. Modern equipment, such as ground-penetrating radar, can help inform an archaeologist where to dig, but gaining a comprehensive understanding of location of the Hampstead Hill line of defense, and the strategy employed by the Baltimoreans, is also crucial, Hopkins said. “Part of the professional protocol of archaeologists is doing that,” he said. “Where exactly was the line? Where did they think their weak spots were? Where did they think the British were coming from? We’re trying to get as deeply into strategy as possible.” Of course, the findings of the dig itself will add to that picture. What do they expect to find? For one, certainly an 1800s version of “artifacts” found in Patterson Park today. “There should be a lot of bottle caps,” said

Hopkins. He added that there is no “legendary cannon” or other Holy-Grail-like object that the group hopes to find, but there are many, many possibilities. During a Civil War project in Lafayette Square, it was ascertained that a Union army hospital once stood on the site. There was a map of the hospital, and at the point of the hospital’s laundry room, 2 feet underground, buttons from officers’ uniforms were recovered. Whatever is found buried in Patterson Park, “everything belongs to the city,” Hopkins said, adding that artifacts will be made available for all city residents to see. He mentioned the possibility of a permanent display in the Pagoda. Overall, he said, the project will add a new dimension to the public’s enjoyment of Baltimore’s favorite park. “We have a lot of ways to look at the park,” he said. “It’s a migratory bird stop, a place to play football, a place for festivals, a place to learn to swim and skate, and—we’re hoping to add—now a battlefield.”

Rodger’s Bastion, a redoubt built at a good vantage point on Hampstead Hill, now the northwest portion of Patterson Park, is shown here. If one was to build a tall, circular structure in the park, perhaps they would choose this spot. | Photo from Lossing’s Pictorial Field Book of the War of 1812, courtesy of the Library of Congress

Roop said that many members came from Frederick, which was basically frontier land during the War of 1812. The hard living, he said, produced “big, big guys” who were an asset in constructing the defensive line at Hampstead Hill. | Photo by Erik Zygmont

This Saturday, Oct. 26, is the annual Great Halloween Lantern Parade in Patterson Park. The day begins at 3:30 p.m. with a free family fun festival (including lanternbuilding workshops on the half-hour) in the park at the intersection of Eastern and Linwood avenues. The parade itself begins at 7 p.m. In the event of major rain, the parade will be moved to Sunday, Oct. 27. Produced by the Creative Alliance, the Southeast Community Development Corp., and the Friends of Patterson Park, the Great Lantern Parade is in its 13th year. Interdisciplinary artist Laure Drogoul, a Walter and Janet Sondheim Prize recipient, is directing the parade for her third year. Since the Patterson Park Pool closed in September, Recreation and Parks has granted her the use of the pool building as a command center for the project. The Baltimore Guide spoke with Drogoul about the parade, the concept, and the process of marching thousands of people through Patterson Park at night.

Can you speak to the theme of this year’s Great Halloween Lantern Parade, ‘Cosmic Park?’

I wanted to kind of consider the placement of the park in the cosmos. I like to keep the theme connected to the park. Cosmology is the study of the universe...It also brings to mind the placement of human beings in the universe. The word “cosmic” also refers to the ethereal and celestial bodies, which are referenced by the light in the lanterns. Plus, it’s a great hook for the kids—flying saucers and UFOs. That kind of imagery can really stimulate the imaginations of kids in the lantern-building workshops.

Why are recycled plastic bottles used to craft the lanterns?

The parade incorporates a dimension of managing waste in the community, and re-purposing it. The kids imagine an object out of a piece of refuse. Everyone is challenged to make something from the theme with the bottles. Some people just make whatever they want. If you see a snake, make a snake. If you see a snail, make that. If you see a marshmallow—who cares? It’s cosmic! Also, when we get plastic bottles, we go to the [Baltimore] marathon and collect them. Now there’s a link between sports culture and our artistic venture. CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

Patterson Park Ave., unit block, Oct. 16, 6:24 a.m. The victim told police he was going to his car when the suspect approached with his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun and told him to drop his things.

Parade: Blends specator and spectacle The lighting element for each individual lantern is a small LED. You have embraced technology.

Yes. The previous director used candles. The lanterns had this lovely, fragile look to them. She used candles, of course, because there was no LED then. One problem with the candles was that the kids’ lanterns kept blowing out, so you had everyone running around with lighters trying to relight everyone’s lanterns. LEDs are very cost effective, too. That technology wasn’t around 13 years ago [when the parade began] or even 10 years ago.

Smart meters have in your neighborhood.

arrived

A lantern parade seems like a novel concept here in Baltimore, but they are common in Asia, aren’t they?

Yes. Actually, in 2004 I went to Japan on an artist fellowship, and my research was on lanterns and lantern parades. It’s very interesting. Lantern parades are all over Japan; they’re huge in Asia. They’re also in Europe— Germany, Austria. I think this parade, starting when it did with Molly Ross, was very unique at the time. The park then was in transition, and the parade was kind of a beacon. It’s a community event that allows people to come out and meet their neighbors, socialize and be together.

This parade seems different from other parades in that the emphasis is on participating in it rather than just watching it. The installation of digital smart meters is now under way in your community. For now, your new meter will perform the same as your old meter. As BGE’s smart grid initiative continues, however, new features will be introduced in the coming months, and you will have more opportunities to manage energy use and save money. We will let you know when these features become available. To learn more, visit

It blurs the line between spectacle and spectator. However, I am amazed at how many spectators there are. But to me, the best way to experience the parade is to walk along with it. I see it as “moving theater.” It’s definitely processional, and it’s very tricky because of that. When you get 7,000 or so people out at night in a darkened environment with these glowing objects, it can be difficult and sensitive to manage.

BIRDS HOUSE

PHIL TIRABASSI

BY ANDY MINDZAK

Owner/Broker 443-690-0552

Ravens need to re-group during bye week The Baltimore Ravens enter their bye week with a 3-4 record and two games behind the first-place Cincinnati Bengals, which might not seem like that much of an obstacle to overcome, but believe me, these is not your typical-quality Baltimore Ravens. After losing a close game, 19-16, to the much-beloved Pittsburgh Steelers on a last second field goal, the Ravens are heading into their bye with many questions. The main question being: Why can they not run the ball? Ray Rice has been a shell of his former self all season, which leads me to believe there might be some kind of injury issue there. During their loss to the Steelers, Rice rushed for 45 yards on 15 carries which is a mediocre 3 yards per carry. His long rush of the day was a 13-yarder, and if you take that away, his yards-per-carry drop to a horrific 2.28. Rice’s best game came against the Miami Dolphins during their week five victory, in which he rushed for 74 yards and two touchdowns. The not-so good thing with that was it took him 27 carries to get those 74 yards (2.74 yards per carry). On the season, Rice has rushed for 242 yards and three scores, but he has also lost two fumbles and has averaged only 2.8 yards per carry all year. Bernard Pierce hasn’t been much better—actually about the same— averaging that same 2.8 yards per carry. Opponents on the other hand, have no such issues running the ball against the Ravens.

This year, the Ravens defense has given up 730 yards rushing over their seven games, which plays to the tune of 3.8 yards per carry. Quarterback Joe Flacco hasn’t been much better. The reigning Super Bowl MVP has completed only 59.5 percent of his passes this year for 1,917 yards, with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. One of his worst games I have seen came during Baltimore’s week-four loss to the Buffalo Bills, in which Flacco threw five picks. Clearly he has been mediocre at best this year, but make no mistake, if Baltimore wants to play in January, they will need to get their ground game going. Baltimore’s defense has overall been pretty solid this year despite the departure of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. The Ravens are second in the NFL in sacks with 25, and their 21.1 points per game allowed is 11th best in the NFL—not great, but not horrible by any means. Their defense has been holding their own, but it’s their offense that needs to improve if they want to make the playoffs. The Ravens have scored an average of 21.4 points per game, which is towards the bottom of the league, and their 74 rushing yards per game is a big reason they are not scoring more. Currently the Ravens rank fifth-to-last in the NFL in rushing yards per game, and their 2.8 yards per carry as a team are dead last. Baltimore needs Rice and Pierce to step it up, and hopefully they will after the bye.
