BALTIMORE, Md. -
In the 1100 block of S. Curley St. the weekend neighbors have moved in, a row of porta-potties.
"They stuffed gift cards in our door thinking that we would just all be okay with it," said Nancy Longo, a homeowner on S. Curley St.
Four bars on Canton Square set up tents to expand the St. Patrick's Day party. Neighbors are used to living near bars, but this is too close for comfort.
The chairman of the Baltimore City Liquor Board says it takes about six months for bar owners to complete the process to pitch a tent.
"There's no gift card in this planet for enough money to have me want to be living in a situation where my neighbors are possibly getting broken into," said Longo.
City police handcuffed two guys and sat them on this homeowner's bench Saturday night. They are charged with fourth degree breaking and entering after climbing onto a woman's rooftop following a nearby party.
"She's pregnant. Her husband's not home. And she's not allowed to have a car on the street," said Longo.
Coburn’s Tavern put up the tent party that backs up to the 1100 block of S. Curley. The manager was there but he dodged our camera and questions.
Across the street at Claddagh Pub, owner Vivian Clarke says she tries to keep her party out of homes.
"I've had the councilman's office text me twice and we go out and tell our sound guy the bass has to be lower. I don't want to rattle anyone's home. I want to make sure they can sit in their house and watch TV," said Clarke.
Some neighbors are rattled. Police officers are on every corner, but it's those porta- potties that have neighbors feeling unlucky.
"I think that the businesses should form an LLC and have insurance so that we are allowed to recoop instead of calling our own homeowner's insurance for our damaged property," said Longo.
Steve Fogleman, chairman of the Baltimore City Liquor Board, says he will consider the complaints and how close the porta-potties and tents are to homes. However, he anticipates changes next year.
