Update: 1236 W Cross Street

Property Address:  1236 W Cross Street, Baltimore, MD 21230

Property Owner:  John H Sweeney, II, same address (property is not listed as homeowner-occupied)

City Council District and Contact: District 10, Edward Reisinger

State Senator:  Verna Jones Rodwell

State Delegates:  Keith Haynes, Keiffer Mitchell Jr, Melvin Stukes

This property changed hands in June of 2011, almost two years after our original post.  unfortunately over a year later…there’s still no improvement.  According to “Reader D”, “There are two houses side by side that have shown little if any improvement and that are a fire hazard.”

Disappointing, to say the least.

    What is amazing is that adress is only about a ten or fifteen minute walk from downtown. And is at a fairly big intersection[as opposed to a small side street] . It really is incredible that this section of Cross Street is still pretty run down. Its closer to Downtown than anywhere in Canton. If the City wants people to live there, they really need to clean up the prostitution and drugs in that area. Last time i was down there, the dealers were boldly yelling out the brand names [for the heroin] out loudly, in the middle of the street.

      So many streets in Pigtown are just about empty — whole blocks. You just don’t notice it as much, since the homes aren’t boarded up messes.
