Best Building In Need Of a Power-Washing: Baltimore Housing

417 E. Fayette St., 410-396-3237,

OK, we get that running a city and offering lots of services for citizens, etc., costs a ton of money, but do we really have to have the civic equivalent of Pig-Pen standing out in such striking fashion? Situated just across War Memorial Plaza from the regal cupola of City Hall, the Charles L. Benton Jr. Building’s tan surface is covered in some sort of black dust, looking like it went to play in the dirt with its friends after working a shift as a chimney sweep. There’s some sort of cruel irony in the bureaucratic arm of the government that’s in charge of helping secure living space for people in need being headquartered in a building that looks like absolute crap. Shouldn’t you get your own house in order?
