Join us for our first in-person tour since February, 2020! On May 22, much of Charles Street will be closed to vehicular traffic, so we’re taking advantage of it with a tour of Station North led by Charlie Duff. Located in the heart of Baltimore, Station North was the first area in Baltimore to receive the State designation as an Arts & Entertainment District in 2002.
Spanning the neighborhoods of Charles North, Greenmount West, and Barclay, Station North is a diverse collection of artist live-work spaces, galleries, rowhomes, and businesses, all just steps away from Penn Station, Mount Vernon, Charles Village, the Maryland Institute College of Art, the University of Baltimore, and Johns Hopkins University. Please note: this tour will be limited to fifteen participants in light of COVID-19 restrictions. Facemasks required. Meet at the Male/Female Statue in front of Penn Station. It’s impossible to miss!
