Will the real Hampden please stand up?

Speaking of new businesses in Hampden, Hawker is all for them and it certainly comes as no surprise that new independent businesses in the Rotunda (as opposed to the crushing presence of say, an Outback Steakhouse) would please me .

So, there's Gallery G at The Beveled Edge that opened recently in the Rotunda.

It offers framing services, yes, but it's also a gallery. (There was a nice, brief write-up on the current exhibitions in yesterday's Sun.) Plus, Gallery G's website announces that a cafe (Ground Control) is coming soon. Looks like a nice place, and in the interest of full disclosure, I'll freely admit that I haven't been there.

Even so, here's the thing: Their website says,

"Gallery G at The Beveled Edge is NOW OPEN in The Rotunda in Baltimore's Roland Park neighborhood."

The Rotunda is in Roland Park?

Not according to Live Baltimore's map of Hampden.

The city's Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation, however, backs up Gallery G with their map.

Hampden Happenings agrees with Live Baltimore.

So, the question remains: IS the Rotunda part of Hampden?

The are probably just trying to appear more upscale by means of the address.

My street is claimed by both Medfield and Hampden. I get both newsletters in my mailbox. But I say it's in Hampden.

Hmmmm. Check out their map for Roland Park. Here, the Rotunda appears to be in Hampden, but the historic district commission appears to have mislabled 41st St, as 40th. Oh Baltimore government . . .
