No Fooling: The Goodmans Relocated

Today the Goodman family announced their relocation. 

After residing for one year in downtown Baltimore’s Federal Hill and 19 years in the Rodgers Forge neighborhood, they have vacated their rowhouse and moved to a new home.

“It was just getting too crowded in our rowhouse,” said Nicole Goodman, 21. “Between the souvenirs they buy when traveling and all of Dad’s books, it was starting to feel like we lived in a warehouse.”

“Actually, it was more like a library with a cabinet of curiosities,” Alexander Goodman, 15, corrected.

Tied to the local literary community—and their careers and schools—the Goodmans decided not to move too far away. They resisted the temptation to move to Canada.

“Alex just got into Carver Center for the Arts, and Nicole’s still at Towson University’s Honors College, so we wanted to make sure they could still attend and we could still make it to work,” Nataliya Goodman, 49, stated.

The new home, Wineberry House, is in the Manor Hills neighborhood of Glen Arm, just 15 minutes from their old home. They can now walk to Loch Raven hiking trails they used to drive to. They're in the woods, but only minutes from civilization.

“Close enough to still consider myself a Baltimore writer,” Eric D. Goodman, 48, insisted.

This summer, once they're closer to unpacked and settled in, the Goodmans plan to host a housewarming party, assuming people are permitted to gather once again. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
