My harbor in Fells Point
This is my favorite part of the city "Fells Point". It has so much character and oldness. I bought a family brick back when they were redoing the pier that you see. It is nice to see the family names on it every time I walk down there. On the end of that pier is where I ran into Keanu Reeves when he was in town filming. YUM! He stood out and looks to be about 8 ft tall and signed an autograph for me. I was suprised he was so large most actors arent.
This is the drinking and bohemian part of town. Very eclectic places and it's already getting too "yuppie" for my taste. When my sister finshed high school and moved in with me I got her in a play in The Fells Point Theater,and I drove her nightly to play practice. We befriended Doug a local bartender who broght me drinks as we watched her practice.
If you want to see the real Baltimore go here and try a summer Friday evening before sunset as all the beer trucks deliver and the crowds change from day to night life. Its fun to watch the transition.
