I just thought I should caution everyone to be very careful while posting internet images onto this forum that aren't your property. I posted an image of Pittsburgh's skyline on here in the past, and even though I didn't claim ownership to it, I still received a warning via PM that the owner of the image was threatening legal action against me unless it was removed.

It just might be a good idea to give credit to the photographer before you post his/her work on this forum. As for me, I have taken thousands of images of PA that are available on PhotoBucket, but I couldn't care less if someone else wanted to utilize them to show others. However, those who earn their living through photography might not be so understanding for what they might perceive to be a threat to their credibility and reputation if others attempt to pass off their work as their own.

As such, you might want to start replies from now on with "Images Courtesy of Such and Such" before posting them to give them credit where credit is due for their hard work. I learned my lesson from that PM, and I plan to do that from now on as well.

By the way, Baltimore looks absolutely gorgeous. I've been there many times, and each time I fall more and more in love with all it has to offer. I can never quite understand why everyone who lives in Maryland hates it with such a vehement passion. What city doesn't have crime? That's no reason to write it off.

opps, I forgot that the pics I posted are all from flickr , thanks for mentioning that ScrantonWilkesBarre

And about Baltimore crime, its FAR from reasonable, im pretty sure thats the only reason a lot of people hate it. But its not just the people from MD who don't like it. I don't hate it, though. I really like it!

Forgot to add Minneapolis/Saint Paul as well. Minneapolis/Saint Paul(Mississippi), Cincinnati(Ohio), St. Louis(Mississippi, Missouri, Meramec, Illinois, Des Peres), and KC IMO are among the most significant river cities of the Midwest, and IMO in the nation as they are in the top 20/30 largest cities in the U.S. on the the three most significant rivers in the U.S. (Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio). New York (Hudson), Detroit (St. Clair) , Cleveland (Cuyahoga), Columbus(Scioto I think is the river's name), Chicago (Illinois, Chicago, Fox), Memphis (Mississippi), Louisville (Ohio), New Orleans (Mississippi), Seattle (Columbia I think?)....it's actually kind of amazing how many river cities there are in the U.S. People tend to look at cities only along the major rivers and count those. there are actually quite a bunch. Oh yeah...Huntington (WV), Pittsburgh, D.C. (Potomac), Wheeling (WV)...

River cities are cool. I like my cities the same way I like my women: old, dirty, and bitchy.
