So bored in fact that I'm going to post the view from my window. At least I have a view.... The first is looking south east. Obscured from view by the Domino's factory is Fort McHenry, home of Old Glory and The Star Spangled Banner. The boat Key was in was out by the bridge during the battle.

Raven's stadium is behind the Bank of America building. [img]www.ar15.com/members/albums/gus%2FSW%2520View%2Ejpg[/img]

Photo #2 looks pretty generic but photo #1 could keep my attention. [:D]

I have to agree, if you have to work late photo 1 is not a back view, in fact an outstanding view! [:D]

No, it's the Domino Sugar factory, all the way at the left end of the Key (as in Francis Scott) Bridge! It looks really cool at night too, but I'm hoping to be outa here by then...

Y'know Troy, a nice, cold BUDWEISER would liven up the evening!

Nice sailing ship in pic 1. I love the old tall sailing ships. My favorite is the Cutty Sark followed by the Thermopylae.

This one is the USS Constellation. I ashamed of how little I know about it, other than they just spent a sh*t load of money restoring it.

Nice view! I spent a few days in Baltimore in December '98 (or '99???). I stayed at the Sheraton down near the waterfront. The Constellation was in Boston or somewhere in dry dock, so I didn't get to see her. Major disappointment! I also took a wrong turn after dark one evening and suddenly found myself in a VERY BAD NEIGHBORHOOD with 19th Century row houses that must have been very beautiful at one time, but all the windows were broken, lights were out, and scary black dudes were shouting things at me. The place looked worse than anything I've seen in New York City or Los Angeles. Fortunately I was in a nice Chevy Blazer and skedaddled the hell out of there in a big hurry. On the good side, I found a broken parking meter with time on it (i.e. unlimited free parking) near the Washington Monument (the one built in about 1833 in downtown Baltimore), toured that, went to Ft. McHenry, the old market, the Shot Tower, and had THE BEST CRAB CAKES EVER. All in all a good business trip. That view is awsome. I really enjoyed the Domino's sign at night.

You must have found North Avenue! Or any number of other scary places in Baltimore....It's a shame too - those neighborhoods have big beautiful homes, but they look like they have been moved to a third world country.

Baltimore DOES have some of the best crab cakes, and crabs in general that you will find anywhere. Next time you're in town, check out Little Italy for some killer cuisine! We gots the best Italian eats this side of the Big Apple!!! You can see the Sheritan you stayed at in pic #2, to the left of Bank of America.
