What I love most about my neighborhood
I love the spirit of the people the most. I love that you can find sweet old ladies and urban hipsters chatting on the same stoop. I love that there's a real spirit of fun and a lightness to how people approach life here that is grounded in a real, urban pragmatism. Baltimore is the underdog, and its tenacity to keep going is what makes us love it.
