Moderator cut: Personal attack I would just ignore all the "this is why Baltimore sucks!" threads because those people obviously have multiple axes to grind. They're probably just sad, unhappy people that wouldn't find any place they've lived/visited to be adequate.

There are obvious market economics reasons why Baltimore is one of the only affordable cities. As a businessman the OP should understand this. If no one wants what you are selling the price goes down. Baltimore is cheap, you are right, but for all the wrong reasons.
point out some of those other economic reasons. as a businessman one should also note that there are more variables to compete on than price, economically speaking. you're using an outdated business model if you really believe that more demand = higher price, and less demand = lower price. you're thinking coach when you should be thinking walmart. you're thinking 5 star restaurant when you should be thinking mcdonalds. baltimore is affordable, not cheap, cheap would be detroit, for all the wrong reasons. that's what i don't understand about you folks. you love to throw out anecdotal diatribe, often comparing baltimore to cities like new york and l.a., while not doing a better comparison with other rust belt cities like cleveland, pittsburgh, and detroit. compare baltimore to those cities and you'd see just how fortunate and better off baltimore is. but again, that's more about how you choose to see the world. i'm more of a glass half full type of guy.

So it would follow that those who say La La La I love Baltimore because...it's Baltimore, are part of the solution?

Hehehe--affordable??? Definitely compared to NYC, DC, Boston. Other than those, Baltimore can be quite expensive when looking at average American cities like Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Houston, and many others.
Baltimore's cost of living with home price, etc is much aligned with Philadelphia, another east coast city.

How much thought went into the site for this Casino.. Yes, it is near the Inner Harbor and sports complexes but Russell Street isnt necessarily the best pedestrian connector between the site and downtown.. I cant wait until Royal Farms(Gas Station) opens up down there so you can have one more place to buy a lotto ticket after you finish gambling....

The only good thing about the site is that its close to the temporary now permenant now temporary Greyhound Bus Station... so maybe it will become a tour bus station for out of town gamblers? And of course its along I-95
