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.
Thanks for responding. Does the Schaefer building have a street address, like ??? East Lombard Street? I know that Schaefer was your mayor in the past.

Speaking of observation deck, where is the best place to take a photo of the Baltimore skyline, including the harbor/water? I have been to the World Trade Center down by the harbor, but at the time I was a guest of a highfalutin' financial firm. Is the observation deck at the WTC open to the publlc at a modest price?

Thanks in advance. I'll be sure to take in an Oriole game when I'm there.

Sure! It's 6 Saint Paul Place.

The price of the WTC observation deck is 5$ for adults (Top Of The World Observation Level). Of course if you want the most commonly seen view of baltimore which includes the city and harbor, you go to Federal Hill Park. Another great view is if you have a room at The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront with a view toward the west. You get an amazing view of the city and harbor. The water taxi can also provide great views.

I totally agree that every city - especially the older East Coast cities - have need for improvement. There are areas in Boston and Cleveland where I wouldn't be comfortable in! I haven't found those in Denver yet but give me time!

I'm truly glad that you are so supportive of your city!
I just moved to Baltimore. In the process of doing some research on the city, I landed on this forum.

My two cents: It seems that anyone who chooses to live downtown in a major city is taking a calculated risk since most out-of-town visitors who visit a city will probably spend a majority of their time downtown and all the people who live in the metro area will come downtown occasionally for errands, leisure, shopping, and entertainment. Downtown areas are touristy and high traffic areas. Crime is more predominant (factor in the odds). Cost of living is higher since you are paying the tourist price for goods and amenities. Then, there's noise, litter, loitering, parking hassles, etc. Does this mean it's okay to make gross generalizations about an entire city based on a few downtown neighborhoods? Absolutely not. That's completely absurd!

I live in Hampden and love it! I hear Charles Village has its charms. There's also Roland Park, Station North, Mt. Vernon, Bolton Hill, etc. There are plenty of places in the city that do not fit your mold. Maybe you should get over yourself and consider the alternatives. Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods and each one has it's own charm. Get out of your bubble and explore some of them.
