My husband and I visited Baltimore for about one full day while on my honeymoon to DC in May '09. We are from Phoenix and the east coast was a huge and much welcomed change of pace for us! We were so pleased with proximity of all of these interesting and historical locations just a short train ride away from each other. I really enjoyed the time we spent in DC and Baltimore(went to an Orioles game and walked around for a little while.) But, just from what I witnessed during our short time there was the poverty and interesting nooks of good vs. bad housing locations. I have watched many episodes of "The Wire" and went in kinda of knowing what to expect. We walked from Penn Station to Camden Yards and never once felt unsafe. Granted, this was during the day but I didn't feel like anyone was following us or bothering us for loose change. We stumbled upon Faidley's in Lexington Market and they were the most delicious crab cakes I have ever had. All in all it was a good trip but I didn't feel like we got the full effect of what Baltimore has in store. From what I gather with the previous posts, it is deteriorating fast and that is a real shame.
