Vote: Which of your questions about the Baltimore area should we investigate next?

We’ve received over 700 questions since we launched our “You Ask. We Answer.” series of stories inspired by your curiosity about the Baltimore area’s people, places, and culture.

So far, we’ve dug into the city’s trash problem, found out how Baltimore neighborhoods got their names, and most recently Baltimore Sun reader John Nickles’ curiosity brought us on a journey to find out what was at the top of one of Baltimore’s tallest towers.


We want to bring you even closer to the news and stories we tell at The Baltimore Sun. That’s why you get to decide which story we investigate next. Which of these three reader-submitted questions would you like to see answered? Vote through Oct. 14.

Have a question you’d like answered? Submit it here and it could be in our next voting round.
