    I was recently in the dicier parts of Baltimore looking at movie sites (Accidental Tourist) and your observation is sadly true. :( I hope the city can someday come out from under the doldrums.

    I have a car door equivalent in NYC. As a pedestrian in Manhattan you have to be very careful of the person walking in front, or to the side of you. Sometimes they stop, or turn suddenly. Sometimes...
