In the Heart of it All

Bawlmer, Baldamore, Baltimore: Home of Natty Boh, inventors of the umbrella and “O!” Say Can You See. We gave you "The Star-Spangled Banner" and the chicken box. Thurgood Marshall, Frederick Douglass, Billie Holiday and Edgar Allan Poe each called our streets home. We're more than The Wire and more authentic than House of Cards. We're a true city of neighborhoods where everyone knows your name (and where your barber is married to that shop owner that went to (high) school with your best friend).
