Baltimore lost population but saw many gains in young educated people and families, which are your future leaders, developers and business owners. Some of the lesser neighborhoods are definitely losing population, but the downtown area saw a big jump, and Population will always be steady in the nice northern Baltimore neighborhoods.

Downtown has been a pretty amazing revitalization, and more huge things are on the herizon like the Super Block, the new Arena, Harbor Pointe and more.

Yes, but most of that loss occured in the earlier half of the decade. That is a TEN year period, alot happens in ten years.

Definately, and firms like Aegon, Under Armour, Walmart, and Lowes have put a vote of confidence in for Baltimore.
If there is abundant vacant office space downtown someone should consider converting it to condos and apartments, the prices are high enough that I know there is demand.

I thought Patterson was a great place when I lived there a long while ago, even though the "park police" would run us. (First base was the tree, second base was the bare spot, third place was "over there somewhere." No parents were to be seen on a midsummer's workday.) If the police caught us up in a tree, we were sure to be taken to the park police "office," about one block south of Milton & Luzerne. At first I thought they would report me to my parents or to the Sister Superior at St. Elizabeth's. Later I learned the value of an alias. It was the start of a slippery slope.

A great Victorian park:

Quote:
After the war, Baltimore architect George A. Frederick established the lovely Victorian character that has distinguished Patterson Park to this day. The 60-foot high Pagoda, designed by Baltimore architect Charles H. Latrobe, was built in 1891 (the Pagoda reflects Baltimoreans’ fascination with the Orient and William Patterson’s link to the silk trade in China) ... the Olmsted Brothers (famous for their creation of Central Park in New York City) developed a design for the eastern section of the park that was intended to accommodate and promote active recreation.
I always visit the northwest corner of the park near the "goldfish pond" whenever I visit fom Chicago. I can remember when the "goldfish pond" actually contained goldfish (big ones).

Things I miss about the old Patterson Park:
1) Hookers and cruisers on every block of Baltimore St.
2) Hot Boyz slinging dope, coke and ready behind the maintenance building.
3) Free cars available in boat lake.
4) Terrified yuppies running from club-wielding horse cops.
5) Packs of wild pit bulls running the park.
6) All the used syringes you could ever need.
7) The "ladies" who did the two-girl shows in the house on Linwood.

Yes, I missed all of these things when I visited the Park last month. Fortunately, I found them when I returned last week.

Is there another Patterson Park? Sure you weren't at Clifton Park?

Actually, since the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation took over administration of most of Clifton Park from the city several years ago, it has become considerably safer than previously. I would still avoid the areas around the pool, the pump station and the bandstand; however, the fencing bounding the trails leading to the schools are now much higher and stouter than when the city ran the park.
