The History of Sandtown
Baltimore, Maryland - April 30, 2015: Two blocks of older rowhomes on N. Carey Street the Sandtown neighborhood of Baltimore run perpendicular with a neighborhood of new town homes built in the 90's. After retiring as CEO of the Rouse corporation, Jim Rouse found the Enterprise Foundation, and aimed at revitalizing Sandtown. After he died, the project stalled, and the economics of Sandtown stayed the same.
The poor, predominately black area of Baltimore known as Sandtown is where the most violent riots occurred the week Freddie Gray was laid to rest. Tensions between the are's residents and police have been bubbling long before Freddie Gray died while in police custody.
