Although many of the stores remained open last week, they lost business during the days a city-wide curfew was in effect. The curfew was lifted on Sunday.
Artist Loring Cornish has a gallery in the trendy area. He applauded Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's decision to charge six officers in Freddie Gray's death.
"Not only is the decision good for Baltimore, the decision is good for the nation. Marilyn Mosby healed the nation. I hope people understand that when that decision came out, the nation began to breathe, said Cornish.
Cornish has expressed himself by painting several signs, including one that says, "Thank You Marilyn Mosby."
