Balto

So after a week in Baltimore, I think that I get it.  It's not a great place to live.  The good areas are really small widely space polka dots on the map.

I live a 5 minute walk from the hospital, which is georgeous.  It's recently renovated and they did a nice job preserving the original hospital structure and wrapped it up in new glass and steel.

On the other hand, I noticed today on the walk to the hospital that many of the places that may or may not have businesses on the 1st floor are clearly vacant on the 2nd and 3rd floors as evidenced by windows that are either broken or boarded up.  The following are two pics from my street.

With all of that said, I'm having a good experience here.  The folks that I'm working with are a really great team and they have been able to really make some cool things fly.  I think it's a great experience.

not that I would shop in the "Rainbow" but if I did I would be terrified the building would collapse during my shopping experience.
