Historic Charles Street Assn. newsletter says the Jefferson Building is going to become a 100-suite hotel. OT: this nl looks like a good source to bookmark for development info.

Trivia buffs: this was one of the last buildings in the city to have an elevator operator. Think the building on the NW corner of Charles and Hamilton (where "A People United" is) is the last.

I wonder why Ceceil county isn't part of the Baltimore metro, I'm sure that will change with BRAC. But the article didn't really say anything outside population growth which isn't a great measure of how strong your economy is imo. I would point to the amount of office space under construction and job growth. Fortunately the numbers look good for Baltimore region on that fron too.

On a side note does anybody else think "Maryland suburbs" is such dumb term to use to define the Maryland's D.C. side? It's vague and what do you call truly suburban areas around the state? There are urban places here just as dense if not denser and larger than some major cities. National Captial Region of Maryland is far more definitive. This was use more frequently in the past but got lost somehow.

Why? I mean it took FOREVER for our good friend Harlem to get banned. I don't recall anything really offensive coming from Balwash. Maybe I missed something or don't know all of the rules.

Adams County: 101,105
I went and looked up the metro areas and was very surprised to learn that York Co. is not part of either the Baltimore or Harrisburg metro's.


Sorry Huck , I was told that a new building was rising. Nice Pics though .

Yeah, BalWash was banned a few weeks back, I think. I'm pretty sure it wasn't for his behavior in this subforum though. He was active in other areas in this forum, and I think it was his actions there that caused him to get banned. I hope he'll come back though.

Don't know why. It just says BANNED under his name in one of the North Amerian threads. I went back to page 32 of this thread and it says that there too.

I didn't know Harlem was banned. I was just savoring the peace. I viewed every day that was Harlem free as a good one.

For the past 10 years, 75% of ALL the homes sold in York County were sold to Marylanders.

You just hate Maryland and don't believe in the Growth/Business/Revenue that has made Northern Virginia so incredibly AWESOME!!! It's the new Paris. Tyson's corner is probably one of the greatest acheivements man has EVER built. Think about all that UPSCALE retail. Just thinking about Mexx, West Elm, and BCBG drives me crazy!!! Who's with me on this?!!! Anyone?

*crickets*


haha...j/k.

Oh right! sorry....

*clears throat*

And DON'T forget about Charlotte and Atlanta! There's more upscale retail there than ANYWHERE on the planet! That's because of all their incredible interstate highways! I hear they're sitting down there laughing at us! Maryland won't build interstates because the Democrat Nazi Socialist Libertarians hate the Growth/Business/Revenue and upscale retail that Interstates bring! they built two William Sonomas there this year...TWO! Charlotte 1 / Baltimore 0. And don't even get me started on Pottery Barn!!!
I'm a firm believer in a gold standard where every city should be ranked based on the number of Olive Gardens. Can i get a hell yeah?

no?

Well,did I mention more hispanics are moving to Charlotte than any other city in the world! Even Mexico! Nobody even speaks english there anymore! They just call it Charlo


lol. I think I'm getting good at this.

No, I don't think it's dumb at all. I think it's just keeping it firm that we are Marylanders and they are District of Columbians. Places like Silver Spring and Bethesda are overshadowed by the District.

So what would you call the 99% left in the state? Suburban Maryland is hardly a distinctive name. I could just as well call the areas outside downtown Baltimore suburban Maryland and it would fit the description more so than Silver Spring or Bethesda. The crazy thing is that downtown Silver Spring has a higher population density than D.C. or Baltimore and geographical size larger than Philly's downtown.

I dont doubt the size or importance or even the coolness of Silver Spring and Bethesda.. but they still remain suburbs of DC. Sure theyre important to our area, but as far as the national scene goes.. its gonna be.. whats a Silver Spring??? And when someone is over in California from Silver Spring and they are asked where are they from.. what do you think theyre gonna say.. "Im from DC" Its no different than someone from Towson saying theyre from Towson when theyre here and goin far away and saying Im from Baltimore.

So as far as the rest of the country is concerned.. DC has suburbs from MD, and suburbs from VA and suburbs from W Va and it distinguishes them as such.

Go Ravens.

An interesting tidbit.. if cities like NY, Boston, and LA didnt have such a large influx of immigrants, their metro areas would have decreased in population over the past 6 years.

NY metro area added 1 million new immigrants in that time, but if it werent for them, its population would have dropped by 600,000!!!

So being that Baltimore doesnt have such a large international/ latin presence (though the latin one is growing) Id say we've held our own compared to other large cities.
