The Glover Report: WESTSIDE BUSINESS CORRIDOR: Techno-Age Corporate Decisions for Profitability Dictate Adjustments in the ‘Hood
The record store at Mondawmin, one of the the first enclosed malls in the country, has been replaced with a video game store. Clearly, a changing music technology has changed the way music is sold. Because of digital technology and consumers now having the ability to purchase music online, apparently the need for physical distribution points has lessened.
Having frequented the mall since childhood (I’m nearly 47), this is the first time I recall there ever not being a record store at this mall located in Northwest Baltimore. Read in Full >>

TGR: Historic West Baltimore TOWN HALL Meeting Set for Tonight at Sharon
Call it a situation of class if you want. Many of the city’s Westside residents could, however, live anywhere they so choose. Yet, for any number of reasons, they choose to live in the vicinity of Pennsylvania Avenue, West Franklin Street, Warwick Avenue, Reisterstown Road and North Avenue. And they tend to believe that it’s not where one lives, but how one lives. For some odd reason, some tend to have the audacity to think that there is still some beauty – beauty worth investing in – right here in the heart of the ‘hood.
Tonight, we’ll talk about these and other issues at the TOWN HALL Meeting at Sharon Baptist Church, 1373 North Stricker Street in Historic West Baltimore from 6 to 8 pm. Representatives of various Baltimore City agencies will be present.
FMI, call Doni Glover at 443.858.2684. Read in Full >>
