Out of the Blocks: 4700 Liberty Heights Avenue
What would it be like if you could meet everyone on an entire Baltimore city block, and you could do it in less than an hour?This is exactly what Out of the Blocks allows you to do.One block at a time, radio producer Aaron Henkin and music producer Wendel Patrick are sharing the stories of Baltimore in a way that's never been heard before, and this is your invitation to join the adventure.On this tour, you will get a glimpse into the lives of everyone on the 4700 block of Liberty Heights Avenue. This block, in many ways, is a portrait of survival and adaptability. It's a self-governed, informal economy where the currency is respect. Space is shared by merchants, churches, longtime residents, and drug dealers. Immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, West Africa, and Korea have set up shops alongside a dwindling number of African American-owned businesses. Trust is earned here, not given lightly.
