Charm City

Baltimore is like many major American cities in that it has a much smaller population than it once did. The flight of former residents to the suburbs and the break-ups of previously dynamic and close-knit communities first resulted in crime and blight, but has now brought a renaissance of sorts to the city, as younger generations come in and bring new life to these areas through investment and hope. Baltimore is full of these neighborhoods, and I was lucky enough to be able to explore the city in October 2011.
I came mainly for a concert (Explosions in the Sky + The Antlers) but was excited to just come because of the prospect of visiting of the few major North American cities I haven't visited.

Pros and Cons
