Voyeurs and connoisseurs alike will be happy to know that this year’s annual Maryland Home and Garden Pilgrimage will feature some of Guilford’s most important homes and buildings. 2013 is the centennial year of the Guilford community, and many of its beautiful and fascinating homes will be open in honor of the anniversary. Among them, the home of Ogden Nash, Baltimore’s celebrated poet lyricist (1902-1971), and noted artist Grace Hill Turnbull (1880-1976).
The tour will take place rain or shine on April 28, from 10a.m. till 5p.m., and will begin at house number one, 3701 St. Paul Street. Buy tickets online (they are going fast) at www.mhgp.org , or send a check — $30 per person and $15 for the (optional) box lunch– made payable to Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage. Checks should be sent to The Guilford Association, 4200 St. Paul Street, Suite 100, Baltimore, MD. 21218. On the day of the tour, tickets will be $35 each. Proceeds for the event will benefit Historic Sherwood Gardens, where the tulips will be in full bloom (God willing) on April 28.
There are several notable houses this year. The cottage of Dr. Anne Barone, whose garden won first prize in the 2012 Baltimore Sun garden contest, takes charming exception to the idea that Guilford houses are all grand mansions. Ogden Nash (“Isabel met an enormous bear, Isabel, Isabel didn’t care…” ) lived for many years in a Tudor Revival on Rugby Road which is also on the tour. And house number one, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Judson Flanagan, is a Palmer-Lamdin designed house, one of two matched “Gateway to Guilford” houses built in the 1930s with beautiful rose gardens and many unique architectural features. (Its match, 3700 Greenway, is not on the tour, but it was for sale last month and was featured in the Baltimore Fishbowl. It sold in three days.)
A couple weeks ago, blogger Tim De Chant posted an article pointing out the correlation between amount of tree cover in urban neighborhoods and income. It may seem like a no-brainer that wealthier neighborhoods boast larger trees and more overall, but it’s a tighter correlation than you may think. De Chant referenced a study that “found that for every 1 percent increase in per capita income, demand for forest cover increased by 1.76 percent. But when income dropped by the same amount, demand decreased by 1.26 percent.”
Apart from neighborhoods that are being blitzed with gentrification, tree cover ought to reveal a neighborhood’s per capita income with a fair amount of precision, given the right algorithm. (Don’t look at me; I’m not figuring it out.)
Anyway, De Chant reasoned that income inequality might be seen “from space.” He grabbed screenshots from Google Earth to compare tree cover in different neighborhoods within a city. The pictures are pretty interesting. He didn’t include Baltimore, so I went and grabbed a couple of my own images. I found the most stunning difference between planned neighborhood Guilford and nearby Waverly in North Baltimore.
