Headed to Camden Yards Sunday for the Orioles' game, we took the route of the National Road - how the west was settled from Baltimore to the Mississippi River.
The road had signs about the National Road.
There was the crossing of the Gwynns Falls trail.
There was marked bicycle lanes on each side of the road.
And block after block with abandoned buildings among the inhabited homes. More plywood than you'll find along the coast when a hurricane approaches. Businesses still operating, but behind metal gates.
How do we revive a city like Baltimore? What they are trying doesn't seem to be working.
