The glass has been smashed out and it appears people have been coming and going through this basement window.

1117 Carroll Street, rear yard is still a mess -- a dumping ground for trash and household items. The yard is so overgrown you can't see the house.

Update: New Properties on the Block

A bunch of properties featured on the blog will be auctioned off at the end of the month — hopefully they’ll go to owners will will do something with them, and not people who will continue to let them deteriorate.

Many thanks to the attorneys at Baltimore Housing for their hard work getting these properties away from their neglectful owners:

Update: 2108 Mount Royal Terrace

Baltimore Housing filed for receivership of this property, and the first court date is July 24th.  I urge all residents who live near this property to be present and be heard at this hearing.  We cannot allow property owners to create hazards in our communities.
