Alley Walk

Toward the end of the northern border of our walk, we stood to compare the buildings surrounding us and to chat.311 will fix that. If you see this on your route, call 311.This is something we HAVE to watch out for...trash pollutes our Chesapeake Bay.SONY DSCAgain, that ends up in our waterways.Alley art. A great looking garden.Both the bucket and lid had sitting water.Moquito heaven.Big Ol' Tree.I think that is an antenna?! Remnants of a garage.This house has been this way for a very long time. Or maybe it used to be a shop.

The walk was September 19. The dumpster announcement was made on September 27.

Waverly Walkers ventured down several of the neighborhood's alleys. Alleys are so critical in either deterring or attracting pests, both rats and mosquitoes including others. Water build-up harbors mosquito eggs. Trash attracts rats. We even saw someone had gently placed some dog poop right on top of the trash can. Will DPW even take that?

We are not as bad as other neighborhoods, but we can certainly do better.

Now, if you have recently noticed some dumpster piles, there has been some difficulty with DPW in regard to getting a dumpster delivered. One is scheduled for this Saturday, October 1st at the corner of Old York Road and 38th Street.
