This is why I like SSP after all these years. Fantastic pics! I didn't realize Baltimore got a few more shiny glass towers (M&T Bank Building downtown, the taller condo a block from the harbor).

This is looking North of Baltimore. It looks like a small city called Towson. It is in a higher elevation, and that is why it looks bigger than it appears

Thank you Shawn. It looks like M&T Bank is the biggest financial institution in Baltimore. M&T Stadium is their football stadium.

Baltimore has the history and urban bones to be a great city and equal to the other 4 BosWash ones. Imagine a revived Baltimore with more transit and an active downtown, could it be on par with Philly and DC? I'm from Philly and I see Baltimore more or less as a little brother or even an alter ego, so if Philly can recover and be vibrant again so can Baltimore. Anyone agree?

My fascination with Baltimore runs deep thanks to The Wire. Thanks for the tour.

I'd like to see a ranking of cities according to the power of the navy they have docked for tourists.

Yeah that show made me want to visit and I still haven't but was close in 2017 when I was in DC. I will one day I hear the food is amazing and is it true that the vibe in Baltimore is different from Washington D.C.? More laid-back big city feel maybe...?

Couldn't agree more. Thanks for sharing your photos!

Definitely more laid back, blue-collar, homey. Less transient. Totally worth seeing as a different place from DC.

I don't think many would say Baltimore is more "big city" though. DC is bigger, more cosmopolitan, more dynamic, higher density, etc. It wasn't always, but today it's not really debatable unless you have a pretty exclusive and unusual definition of "big city." That's not always apparent to tourists who only see the monumental core.

Agree, but they need to do more investments on the seaport as they have deep water. This will bring more business and distribution centers to the Baltimore area

Ok I figured it was. I can’t wait to visit. Well I guess I was talking about the traffic and major league sports teams. It has all the amenities of a big city I would think. But you know more being from the area. I agree though DC is bigger but man the food was something to be imagined. I’m more use to soul food and not really use to the cuisines of other countries and that’s what DC offered. Could you post some food spots to visit or a Instagram food blogger who know all the good restaurants around town in Baltimore?

It looks like the ESPN Zone is long gone.

Well sure, Baltimore definitely qualifies as "a big city," no question about it. In terms of soul food, IDK, I live in DC. I could tell you some of DC's spots (there are plenty, but not as many as Baltimore), but I'm not really local enough to Baltimore to tell you their secret spots. There are tons of online resources like listicles and message board discussions, but TBH I'm just googling them.
