South and Southwest Baltimore

So today i went down to Baltimore for some photos. Im going to be doing Baltimore in Sections over a long period of time. I may skip a few neighborhoods though and im really sorry for that!
First, I went to Dickeyville/Franklintown and than Ten Hills. after that, I headed to Washington Village (I have some photos in between these areas such as Edmondson village!), than a
little bit of the Federal hill, and finally some South Baltimore. Hope you guys enjoy this

1. Hampden/Patterson Park/Federal Hill
2. South and Southwest Baltimore






















































































































































Downtown was very alive and Bustling!






















































































Four Seasons/Legg Mason Coming along nicely!






























































































Creepy legg is spying on me!

Its both Pet's Smart and Pet's Mart. Baltimore looks good these days. One beef I have though with Baltimore and Philadelphia is how ugly the newer brick buildings are. Instead of blending in, the newer brick buildings look prefab and cheesy lacking many original Federal, Georgian or Colonial architectural features. Why not go with galvanized steel or a modern material?

I am referring to "SouthandSouthwestBaltimore319.jpg". There are no marble sills and the steps arent even real marble. Blend in historically correct or do something radically different. There is enough brick in Philadelphia and Baltimore. Show us something new.

The newer brick buildings look prefab because they ARE prefab. The bricks are not laid one upon another as of old but already premolded by a machine & arranged in panels which are joined together at the building site. The old procedure was just too much work.
