Walking past the site of the now-demolished Madison Park North apartments on Easter weekend, I stopped to notice a sign with a drawing of the new buildings going up in the neighborhood. It reads, “Working Together to Realize a New Vision for Madison Park North,” but, with a marker, someone had altered the sign to say, “Working Together to Realize a New Vision for White People.”

Demolition was one of the recurring themes of Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s term as Baltimore’s mayor, and it’s starting out to be a theme for Mayor Catherine Pugh as well.
