Developing revival of Westport has profit, pitfalls
Trucks rumbled noisily past Velma Wright's rowhouse on Annapolis Road, drowning out conversation as she sat on her porch in the afternoon heat. Her block in Westport is scarred with boarded-up homes. Discarded junk fills overgrown backyards. Across the busy street, the little candy and hardware shops shut their doors long ago.
