As a new business, "MiY Home" and "Sleep Lab Z," we are very excited for the Red Line coming two blocks from our store ("MTA announces series of 'open houses' on Red Line," Sept. 16). We purchased two connected abandoned buildings in the back of Fells Point (Douglass Place). One factor in doing this was that Baltimore was putting in a Red Line and people could get around and visit us without getting into cars to go shop in the furniture stores outside the city.
I know the Red Line is controversial, but many of my neighbors and business peers have planted down roots in homes and businesses along the stops because this project moves Baltimore closer to being a world city.
