100 things we love about Baltimore [Pictures]
A moody tavern. An extraordinary cocktail. The easy lapping of bay water against the banks of the Inner Harbor. Duckpin lanes. Old Bay. Art in an otherwise empty storefront. For all of these things, and for so many more, people love Baltimore. People feel how they feel about this place for their own reasons. It's personal and not necessarily explainable. Something between them and the city. But in the spirit of sharing the love, we asked some of the city's best-known personalities to reveal something that makes them fall for Baltimore. Take this list as personal suggestions, from one neighbor to another.

Laura Wexler: The Abell Open Space( Monica Lopossay, Baltimore Sun / January 24, 2008 )

"This pocket playground near the 32nd Street Farmer's Market isn't the best playground in the area. This park has just four swings and a motley assortment of plastic toys and big wheels. ... But it's the heart of toddler Charles Village, so there's always other kids and -- thank God -- other adults there. And there's always some action or gossip brewing, whether it's a mama bird and her babies nesting in one of the spindly trees or the discovery of a loaded gun in the backyard of a nearby apartment building." 300 block of E. 32nd St., between Guilford and Abell streets
