In 2009, armed with a camera and research, Carol Ott began outing Baltimore’s slumlords. On her blog, Baltimore Slumlord Watch, she shared information about the owners of vacant and neglected properties, who she saw as contributing to the decay of Baltimore neighborhoods.

Carol talked about Baltimore’s vacants and history and the intersection of housing and public health.
