Other Offices, Other Conversations

We're trying out some new kinds of interactivity in this post--welcome feedback on whether it makes a difference or not.

As it happens, Officer H. Graham Smith took this picture above 25th Street , where Baltimore City’s ACORN office used to be–two or three blocks out of the lower right frame. The major thoroughfare on the left heading downtown is Greenmount Ave. And way in the upper right corner you can see the outfield bleachers of the Baltimore Orioles’ Camden Yards.

The Inner Harbor beckons in the distance, just beyond the cluster of high rises. The picture poses a question: how far is it from the row houses that dominate the foreground to the prosperous waterfront? How far from the bombed-out center to the elegant dining?
