Behind the Scenes - My Town

My Town

Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods and “My Town” is an intimate look at our thriving neighborhoods and the residents that call them home. Citizens, community leaders, historians, sociologists, and architects share their knowledge, experiences and expertise to provide a comprehensive look at how each community began, has weathered change, and continues to contribute to Baltimore's patchwork of rich and diverse neighborhoods. Each community profile is approached differently and reflects the unique character of its residents, its history, its housing, and its sense of community. Aspects such as community, environment, livability, and neighborhood changes are explored, in addition to cultural history and architectural significance. Each segment ends with a resident expressing his/her feelings about the community and why he/she loves living in Baltimore City.
