I don't ever think about Baltimore. It seems like a city that has no reason to exist. It's not a regional city. DC and Philadelphia dominate that region. I never think about Baltimore unless someone mentions it.

St Louis is like Baltimore but much less interesting. It is also somewhat slower-paced than Baltimore, although as others have said Baltimore isn't terribly fast either.

Actually I'd say that a good way to describe Baltimore is that it has St Louis's culture/vibe combined with Philadelphia's physical architecture.

this sounds incredibly ignorant. both cities have played integral roles in the history of the united states, both are packed with charm, and both are much more interesting than 90% of american cities. many also say that st. louis's built environment resembles philadelphia, with which i agree (and i'm from phila). baltimore, philadelphia and st. louis were intimately connected as trading centers throughout the 19th century. all three have quite a bit in common.

My girlfriend is from New York and she came to St. Louis last week. The first thing she said was "OMG St. Louis looks so much like Philadelphia".

With perhaps more gentrification Stl could have the 2nd best urban core in the Midwest.

I often go to Baltimore for work. Fells Point in Baltimore is a great area that reminds me so much of Soulard in St. Louis.

Really? I dont see any similarities with the exception of the brick. Soulard appears victorian. Fells Point appears much older.Also Fells point is a waterside neighborhood with a much different vibe from soulard. Based on the photos Fells Point appears more lively.
