Top Stories: Anti-Panhandler Agenda in Fed Hill, Park Café and Coffee Bar Shuts Down, Apartment for Sale in Wyndhurst Co-Op

Our most popular read this week was about the anti-panhandler social media activity of the Federal Hill Hospitality Association, a nonprofit that represents “roughly 20 restaurants and bars” in the South Baltimore neighborhood, according to its website.

This month, the group began posting some pointed messages on its Twitter and Facebook accounts, instructing locals to “#reclaimBALTIMORE” by ceasing to give money to panhandlers. This week, the group regularly posting photos with captions recommending neighbors and patrons use their dollars and change for gas or to pay for parking, instead of giving them to those begging for assistance on the corners and sidewalks. The group has also said it’s called the cops on panhandlers. Some tweets tagged city officials and even the U.S. Justice Department to try to bring attention to the matter.

City residents have lashed back at the campaign online, saying it casts an uncharitable and exclusionary light on the neighborhood’s popular bars and restaurants. The organization’s leaders still haven’t returned requests for comment and couldn’t be reached by phone on Friday, but appear to be defending their stance. In subsequent replies, the group said it really wants to help those less fortunate, tweeting in one instance, “We want the city to help get treatment and we do not want them panhandling and walking to Sharp Leadenhall for a fix.”

Last week, Ed Gunts covered a testy community meeting at the Radisson Cross Keys that featured more than 200 North Baltimore residents discussing a developer’s planned six-story, 128-unit apartment building off of Falls Road and Northern Parkway. Many gathered to ask why now, not earlier, had Councilman Isaac “Yitzy” Shaffer called a public meeting to get feedback from members of the public about the project.

In one public tiff, the developer, Jonathan Ehrenfeld of Blue Ocean Realty, asked a resident who was there to oppose the plan why he’d asked earlier on if he could join in as an investor. (The man responded that he wanted to work from the inside and help plan the project.)

Other residents from nearby neighborhoods voiced concerns about traffic worsening on Falls Road, or apologized for knowing about the development early on but having not informed their neighbors.

“The issue is bigger than our immediate neighborhood,” said Poplar Hill resident Mary Ann Mears, mother of former mayoral candidate Elizabeth Embry. “It’s how business is being done in the city of Baltimore. It needs to be more transparent.”

The top story on our site this week was about The Foundery’s much-anticipated open house happening tonight, where guests will enjoy demonstrations in everything from liquid nitrogen ice cream making to welding and wood lathing. The Foundery, a maker space designed for industrial creatives with pretty much any level of experience, moved to Port Covington from downtown Baltimore last June. Its new space in the City Garage building is roughly 10 times the size of the old one. Since the move, The Foundery has held three open houses; tonight’s will be the fourth.

“Our tagline is community access to industrial-grade tools and training,” said CEO Jason Hardebeck in an interview. “Our goal is really to introduce as many people as possible to the tools and kind of equipment you would find in a workshop or a factory.”

The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at at 101 W. Dickman Street.
