A walk through East Baltimore

I joined a group of fellow students for a walk around East Baltimore with the Baltimore City Police Department. We got to see the neighborhood to the east of the Johns Hopkins University campus. There was a mesh of cultures and social strata. Next to dilapidated buildings were refreshed and renewed homes. Whereas some people were out enjoying the beautiful day, others were out because they had no place to call home. Baltimore is so much more than what “The Wire” made it out to be.
