Interesting Sights From Northeast Baltimore(Spoiler Alert! There Will Be Wall Art)

I had lunch today at the Broadway Market and I always drive North on Broadway when I make my way home because it is just so interesting to see how Baltimore is developing in some areas and how there is still a lot of work to be done to improve our city in others. I love this city so much and I just can’t stop discovering it.

Well here is the awesome lunch I discovered; Bibimbop at Lucia Joanns in Broadway Market.  They serve normal diner fare AND Korean food.  AWESOME! Photo, please!

ImageStir fried veggies, beef, rice topped off with egg and srihacha sauce. Yum. You can get it without meat and egg for a vegan treat.

Afterwards, traveling North on Broadway, I took time to take a photo of one of my favorite pieces of urban art that I have been meaning to document here in this blog.  Finally, here it is.  Image

You may notice that in the left of the shot is a huge Scan thingy with the address of the vacant property.  I wonder if this is part of the Wall Hunters film project/social movement, ‘ya know as a way to ID the buildings.  I’ve seen these on other buildings with art on them so who knows?

As I headed farther up on Broadway I found this out of the way bar near Hoffman and Gay streets.      Image

It’s padlocked, I guess because it’s the middle of the day.  Maybe it is just closed for good, but admittedly, if it is shut for good, the immediate area around it is oddly clean.  The sign says, ‘Connie Torain’s Hideaway-Your Home Away From Home’.  Oh that Connie!

Now I only found Connie’s because I was turning around to take a photo of this Amtrak mural that oddly enough is visible from the Amtrak train tracks that run through Northeast Baltimore on their way to Penn Station.  I love the art but I wonder what the thinking was on that commissioning; “Hey, we need a mural of an Amtrak train to remind the people on Amtrak trains that they are on an Amtrak train!”  Here’s the mural.Image

Till next time, hons!

I'm one nifty dude who is fascinated by his hometown; Baltimore, MD. It is persistently beautiful and ugly and I wish to live nowhere else ever again.

  1. great mini tour and dug the pics :)

  2. Hoping to be in Baltimore around March. Want to get into John Hopkins for treatment of a rare spinal disease. Came on suddenly and without warning. WTF?!
    Hope to spend a month there participating in clinical trials and their Transverse Myelitis PT and OT programs. They’re the only hospital in the world that has a clinic devoted to this disease.
    Your blog is going to be a starting point for ‘Cool things to see, try and eat!’ in Baltimore.

    Hope you’re doing fine my friend

  3. You like other Korean food?

  4. Scott, I love your walking tours. More please! And speaking of Fells-point-Canton, is the Sip & Bite back open? I think they recently did a little remodeling. Enjoy the weekend, ~Theadora

  5. Sip and Bite is still rockin’! I can only assume it is still the best place in Baltimore to watch Truckers, hopped up on speed, buying breakfast for transvestites.
