Little Italy in Baltimore

Little Italy in Baltimore has been a staple of Baltimore culture and cuisine, even though it is insulted by foodie critics, it remains one of Baltimoreans and non-Baltimoreans favorite areas of Baltimore, and surprisingly is still inhabited mostly by Italians.

    This neighborhood is getting squeezed by development

    Yeah, the neighborhood is being squeezed by development on all sides, the area south of the shot tower on the north side of Little Italy; the south side of Little Italy by HarborEast. Really, though, there are too many surface parking lots in LI, there should be more parking in HarborEast to access Little Italy. Also, many of the rowhouses are deteriorating, and more should be done about that. Also, something should be done about Maria “300”‘s. Reopen it, please.
