Welcome to the Oliver neighborhood, aka Baltimore’s Come Home Zone. You might recognize it as “Hamsterdam,” the blighted setting of the celebrated HBO series The Wire, but for Baltimore native and real estate developer, David Borinsky, Oliver is the neighborhood where people can find “the warm pleasure of rediscovered community.” David’s has been helping to make Oliver a better place by renovating vacant houses and turning them into homes. He’s planning to renovate a few more with the help of Small Change.
See his offering here. And get to know the neighborhood and David’s work there in the slideshow below.
