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.

Barry Glazer: The Block( Gene Sweeney Jr., Baltimore Sun / July 8, 2011 )
Barry Glazer, plaintiffs' attorney
"I have always been intrigued by 'The Block,' aka Baltimore Street. I never understood why the city never attempted to promote the area; instead, they have done just the opposite. They should put a casino there. I have no doubt the convention business would have exploded had the city assisted the business owners there instead of trying to close them down. The characters, the buildings, the carnival-like atmosphere are all fascinating." 400 Block of Baltimore Street
