The near-constant rain and looming dark clouds last week made the Preakness Stakes and Black-Eyed Susan at Pimlico Race Course a damp, muddy, gray affair. But an announced crowd of 134,487 turned out to see Kentucky Derby winner Justify capture the middle jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown, or to drink and party in the waterlogged infield as Post Malone, 21 Savage and ODESZA played.

Our photographer J.M. Giordano decided to capture the scene in black and white, saying he had never seen the Preakness photographed that way “and the stark weather was perfect for black and white.” Check out his photos below.

While you weren’t looking, a new coffee shop was born in March on W. Preston Street in Mount Vernon. Tooth N’ Nail isn’t of the sleek, modern variety, opting instead for a laid-back ’90s vibe and, per a description on its Facebook page, an aim of “hearkening back to the old days when they were community spaces for artists, students and local people to gather.”

A recent history of Mount Vernon, according to The New York Times


On Tuesday, The New York Times published a real estate story about a Baltimore neighborhood on the come-up thanks to the elbow grease of determined residents banding together to save their patch of a woefully troubled city.

That neighborhood was Mount Vernon. No, that is not a typo.
