Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland. As of the 2000 census, its population was 641,943. The city is home to an important sea port, and historically was a center of manufacturing and industry as well. While the sea port remains important, industry has gone into relative decline, and today Baltimore's economy is more orientated towards the service sector.

Baltimore Facts


Here is some more information about Baltimore:
  • Professional sports teams in Baltimore include the American football team, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Major League Baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles.

  • In 1996, Baltimore became the first American city to adopt 311 as a non-emergency "hot line" telephone number, leaving 911 reserved only for genuine emergencies. The scheme has been highly successful, and, as a result, has been widely emulated by other American cities.

Product Description:
Walking Baltimore includes Charm City's well-known neighborhoods -- Downtown, the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, and Fells Point. But in the voice of its insider author, the book also covers lesser-known and far-flung corners, revealing what makes Baltimore such a wonderful and fascinating destination and hometown. Full of little-known facts and trivia, this book shows how and why Baltimore was an essential player in the country's early history and continues to be influential today. Here is a city almost unparalleled in American history and it lives up to its modern reputation as a quirky, come-as-you-are and be-what-you'll-be place. The zany Baltimore-based film director John Waters (of Hairspray fame) summed it up best when he said, "It's as if every freak in the South was headed to New York City, ran out of gas in Baltimore, and decided to stay."

Product Description:
Baltimore is a city that never ceases to surprise - whether you live here your whole life or visit for a day - and it's a strikingly beautiful place from the soaring dome of City Hall to the panoramas of the Inner Harbor at twilight. It's a city full of history and culture, quirky and idiosyncratic with its own one-of-a-kind personality. It's a city of innovation - the birthplace of the national anthem, the railroad, and Babe Ruth - and it celebrates those achievements with monuments and museums that bring the city's story to life. The talented Alan Gilbert takes us on a photographic tour of his hometown, from the Washington Monument and Fort McHenry to museums celebrating the city's immigrants, industry, and maritime past to neighborhoods like Bolton Hill and Hampden with its very own Bawlmer flair. Baltimore does indeed surprise, as visitors remark who come here knowing only the Orioles, the Ravens, and The Wire. It's an all-American city, a creative, sometimes eccentric place, and a marvelous place to visit or call home.
