Thanks to Reader Rusty for providing the picture and following information:

This property is located just across the street from Johns Hopkins, and it’s the only blighted property on what appears to be a stable block.

Besides being a defendant in a receivership suit in Baltimore, Mr. Tong has a pending trial in PG County for impersonating a police officer. I wonder what Johns Hopkins and the American Board of Opthalmology would think of this.

Update:  According to Scott Calvert from the Baltimore Sun, there was an article detailing Tong’s multiple MD Homestead Tax credits, none of which he was entitled to receive. You can read the article here.

      There’s an article in the Sun about a house fire in the 500 block of N Washington Street — it’s dated May of 2010. If it’s the same house, the current owner bought it in this condition. At the very least he should have replaced the roof by now, instead of letting the property deteriorate even further.
