Early bird tickets for Baltimore’s BEST party on sale now!

SOMETHING OLD (AND NEW): Not all the...


SOMETHING OLD (AND NEW): Not all the Inner Harbor area is new.

Tomorrow, for example, you can see not only the city's oldest existing residence, but another house that was originally built as a paper mill.

They're two of 16 Fells Point and Federal Hill houses and $H gardens that are open to the public for one day as part of the 55th annual Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage being conducted by the Society for the Preservation of Federal Hill and Fell's Point Inc.

The tour is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost $15 a person and are on sale at O'Conor Piper & Flynn offices at 905 Light St. or 718 S. Broadway.

No parking is allowed in Federal Hill, but parking is free at Fells Point on lots at Thames and Caroline streets. Organizers suggest using a water taxi to reach Federal Hill ($3.25 ticket is good all day) and return.

(Oh, yes. The city's oldest urban residence is the Robert Long House in Fells Point. It dates to 1765. The ex-paper mill is in Federal Hill.) Information: 675-6756.

SO NO ONE FORGETS: Tomorrow is a day set aside by Jewish communities around the world as a memorial and tribute to Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II.

The Baltimore area's observance of Yom HaShoah, the Holocaust Day of Remembrance, will begin at 2:15 p.m. with a program at the War Memorial building, Gay and Lexington streets.

After the program, participants will proceed to the city's Holocaust Memorial at Lombard and Gay streets for a candlelighting service, Kaddish and a memorial prayer.

The War Memorial program will include a talk, "Remember the Children," by Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. Plus, three high school students will present original readings based on their experiences during a recent visit to former concentration camps in Eastern Europe.

The event is open to all and is sponsored by the Baltimore Jewish Council, the community relations agency of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore. Information: 235-9006.


* Reminder: Plan ahead to park. The Orioles are back downtown for the coming week, playing at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
