This part of the city is simply a sea of blight. Everywhere you look, you’ll find entire blocks of boarded-up blighted homes. With no grocery stores, pharmacies, or other “useful” businesses close by, it would be hard to draw people to this area or keep the people who live there now.
Property address: 2132 N. Fulton Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21217
Property owner: Elton Galloway, 1925 (or 1917, depends on who you believe) Hope Street, Baltimore, MD 21218
City Council District and contact: District 7, Belinda Conaway
The owner of this property, Elton Galloway, probably doesn’t worry about having to go to housing court, since he seems to spend a lot of time in and out of criminal court. A petty drug dealer with a history of violent crimes, he clearly has bigger fish to fry than worrying about his house on N. Fulton Avenue. However, we do wish the city would condemn the home, and sell it to someone who would fix it and live in it — and perhaps they could help Belinda Conaway clean up this neighborhood. Don’t people deserve better?
