A walk through East Baltimore

I went for a walk with some fellow students and the Baltimore City PD. It was somewhat eye-opening to see that Baltimore has as many solutions as it does problems. Things are looking up for the Charmed City.

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.
