7.5

Like the density which seems to lack in US cities, needs more taller buildings as everyone has already said.

Well i agree being from b-more it does need some more taller buildings but, there are a couple of new high rise proposals going up. A 35 story and a 28 story for starters plus a slew of apartment buildings going up all over downtown and the new aqurium building! Some of these pics are old and dont show harbor east with the 31 story mariott hotel . And just for the record Baltimore and DC are one metropolitan area. the 2 have grown so much in the past . The Washington Post did an article on it. saying that the new metro area is about the same size as the state of conneticut and ranked fourth in the nation for population.

It is pretty much alright but it could do with a few more, preferable tall, buildings.

I love the inner harbor's look, but the skyscrapers need work. The tallest building is Legg Mason (great company in an ugly building...it deserves better.) I don't care if tall blocks looked good in the 70s, it's ugly now. I love the quirky postmodern buildings, but you can tell they didn't eat their veggies either. It's too bad that the Bank of America building wasn't at least a couple hundred feet taller, otherwise it would be the crown jewel of Baltimore. Plus, you can barely see it's dome and needle behind 100 E. Pratt Street (the one next to Legg Mason with the caged awning over it.)

Spoken by someone who obviously hasn't been here. They are two very different places. Baltimore is larger than DC (city population), has it's own distinct attitude that is thankfully NOT like DC and its overwhealming Federalism. Among the people I have met in both cities, personally and businesswise, whenever they express a preference to move, the people who would move from DC to Baltimore outnumber those that would go the other way by about a factor of 10.
