Baltimore has set a benchmark for rejuvination of it's harbor. In the 1960's it's decline had reached a critical level and the city decided it needed to be remedied. The began by bulldozing blocks of dilapidated wharehouses and stalls along the waterfront and rebuilding the warf.
Harbor place, an assorment of shops and stalls in a atrium like building, formed the corner stone of the effor. Since that time various attractions have been added. Seen in this view is the National Aquarium with over a billion gallons of tanks and a rain forest in the greenhouse that forms the roof. In the foreground is the USS Torsk, which was the last submarine to see battle in WWII when it sunk a Japanese ship.
