Found it interesting that Amtrak was actually promoting day trips to Artscape along the NE Corridor. I guess they are attempting to assist in promoting the city to pave the way for the new boutique hotel that will occupy the upper floors of the station. It will certainly become a prime lodging location as Station North begins to take shape.

Default A terrific Artscape

I've seen many of them, but this was quite wonderful. No wonder Amtrak is involved because exhibits now line Charles Street all the way to the Charles Theater.
If you have never been to Artscape, you owe it to yourself to go. Take the Metro or light-rail because parking is impossible.

I had a blast at Artscape. I really liked the human foosball.

A lot of people decided to park in Bolton Hill even though the streets were closed (except residents) and got ticketed. It made it difficult to find parking so that was a bummer for me.

I found that many people parked along Falls Rd down by the Streetcar Museum and under the North Ave and Howard STreet Bridges.. I dont know how legal that was/is but it was probably not high on traffic enforcement's list. It was a short walk from there to either Charles Street or Maryland Ave to access the events... I hope this was not someones secret parking spot that will be overrun next year.. If so, sorry to put it out there

I parked on Guilford. It was nice to see a couple cars with smashed windows, and mine not being one of them.
