New businesses are opening up all the time, and there’s a persistent rumor of a Highlandtown/Canton Charm City Circulator route, courtesy of the local city councilman.  OK, maybe the  southeast Circulator route is magical thinking—but Highlandtown is still eminently walkable, and its multiculturalism, great Latino markets and restaurants, the Creative Alliance,  Patterson Park, and affordable housing are not the stuff of pipe dreams.
