Pedestrians Killed By Drivers in Dundalk, Essex and Middle River - List and Map

Eastern Baltimore County is a dangerous hotspot for pedestrians. The roads have many vehicles, the speed limits are high, drunk drivers are plentiful and large numbers of county residents do not own vehicles. Shopping centers may be on opposite sides of crowded boulevards from housing. The Baltimore County government does not show much concern for pedestrian safety and the result is a long list of painful and horrific pedestrian deaths in the area.

Maryland Prison Statistics

I've been tracking prison statistics and would like to share my findings. The data I collect is published in Maryland Department of Public Safety Annual Reports, in the Department of Corrections in the Corrections - Operations(formerly Division of Corrections)Annual Reports. Most of the data below has to do with inmates processed. The records are published in pdf format for each year by the state, which I have gathered and converted to a spreadsheet for anyone who needs the data.

Before the Highways: Baltimore Midtown and West Side. 1964 vs 2014 Aerial Imagery: 60 Years of Urban Change

This slider shows the midtown area of Baltimore City, using 1964 aerial imagery. This imagery was taken well before the construction of the damaging Highway to Nowhere on the West Side and a few months before the final construction of the Jones Falls Expressway where it terminates downtown. One can also see both the Lexington Terrace and Murphy Homes Public Housing and those project's replacements along Martin Luther King Boulevard in the 2014 imagery.
