I think of the writer and champion of cities Jane Jacobs every time I walk to work. I have a small office studio on the 200 block of Park Avenue. As I cross Saratoga heading south on Park, I pass International Fragrance, Blue Sky Diner, Jeanius Styles (closed), Dimensions In Music (closed), the old Sharp Dressed Man (that caught on fire), a place with no name above the door but a bunch of flower arrangements in the window and some barber chairs inside, a gaming store/ lounge called M.A.P. Technologies, Gift and Variety, U.S.A. Staffers, Accessories and More, Klymaxx Lounge (which was briefly Park Place, operated by Baltimore Club legend Rod Lee, and before that the great Isis Lounge), EMT Wholesale, an unnamed hookah place, Diamond Cut, and H&H Wholesale before I reach Psychic Annex, the building where I rent a studio space above two theater companies. Beside our building backing up onto Clay Street, the old church rectory has been converted to apartments.
