A couple of days in Baltimore allowed us to check out the sights, most from the ‘Top of the World’ observation deck on the 27th floor of a building situated along the harbor
First up though is a statue in West Mount Vernon Place, with Baltimore’s 175′ Washington Monument in the background.
Meanwhile back in the observation deck; a view of Federal Hill with the Inner Harbor in the foreground and the Outer Harbor in the distance. Fort McHenry would be in the distance.
The famed Oriole Park at Camden Yard. Built in the early 1990s it was the first retro stadium constructed, setting off a stadium building boom.
Another harbor view with the still active Domino Sugar factory.
Much of Baltimore is very old, but there is some new development near the harbor.
Including a high rise with views of oil tanks in the distance.
Baltimore has more row houses than any other city, it seems 90% of the city lives in them.
The ‘Seven Foot Knoll’ lighthouse – built in 1855. In the foreground is the top of the National Aquarium.
The historic Power Plant. Built in the early 1900s it was re purposed into commercial stores in the 1980s.
The USS Constellation. Built in 1854 and used for 100 years, she is a center piece of a museum.

Last photo is my favorite. I love tall ships. They visit Finland every fourth year. If You have not seen many of them, then here is my post from 2017:
