Front & Gay Streets



As Lora would say: "This is someone's child. Someone's brother. Someone's dad. Someone's student. Someone's friend. Someone's old neighbor. Someone's old lover.

On Saturday I went to the Baltimore Farmers Market on Gay Street, under the 83 overpass. It was paked with people, dropping 12$ on a bag of coffee beans and some $20+ a pound for meats from local, organic farms. Many were in line to purchase $10 omeletes from one of the breakfast stands.

A stark contrast to the numerous homeless people in this area. sleeping on benches, in grassy knolls along sidewalks, in tents outside the church, in front of city hall, alongside the soup kitchen.

I saw no less than 20 homeless people in the five blocks I walked to the market entrance.

"great schools, great kids"

This photo was published recently in the City Paper. It's a Baltimore city public school slogan sign--their motto, "great schools, great kids."

One of many...

Places for steamed blue crabs.





Don't be fooled by imitation, and whatever you do don't eat crabs in Jersey. Those crazy asses tear the crab's shell off while it's still alive, rinse it out and then steam it until the meat is mush. We do it right in Charm City--steam those suckers whole in cheap beer n' old bay, and prepare to get dirty :)

Get yours! Free hugs outside Union Station

I got mine! I took two seconds out of my commute to hug a complete stranger, and I have to say, it felt good.
