This MOST of Baltimore unfortunately. I know most folks don't go near these areas, but let's get real.

Incorrect. Baltimore has some terrible areas but MOST of the city is not like that.

Although I don't live in Baltimore, I visit about once a month to see my sister and brother-in-law who live in the city. I always look forward to it, and enjoy my time there. Despite all the bad, there is so much good in Baltimore. Here's some of my photos from the last few years:

I don't know what people find charming about the row houses in baltimore and other east coast cities. They have a very depressing, forlorn feel. I really wish they build 10 inner harbor quickly. Baltimore would be a pleasant place if all those rowhouses were demolished and made way for new glass skyscrapers like the ones in the inner harbor. And if there were twice as many sunny days and the average temperatures were 10 or 15 degrees warmer and fall didn't start until november.
your opinion!!!
Those row houses have architectural detail that you cant find in new homes today, the key isn't to tear them down, but to renovate them and make the city a better place to live!! If you want i can upload pics of what my row house looks like bet youd change your opinion!!!

What it the name of the oddly shaped, pencil-thin building I sometimes see in photos of the Baltimore skyline. Is it taller than the Matheson Building, my standard of a skyscraper when I lived there many years ago? What is the street address of this new, unusually shaped building. Does it have an observation deck? I'll be coming to Baltimore for my 55th Poly reunion in June. Its seems the skyline has changed quite a bit.

Those photos are phenomena Grendel!

Zea mays, as for the pencil thin building, i believe you are referring to the William Donald Schaefer Building. It does not have an observation deck unfortunately, but there is an observation deck at the Baltimore Word Trade Center. The William Donald Schaefer Building was completed in 1992. They planned to have condos in the top "pencil thin" section, but that never went through and i don't believe anything lies up there today.
