The holiday lights on the Washington Monument are strung and ready to be lit up on December 2nd. The old lights were replaced last year with new LED strands which are brighter and don't have a tendency to burn out. The monument already is one of the most recognizable structures that dots our city skyline, but when it is all light up for the holidays it is hard to miss. Sure other cities have giant Christmas trees, but we have something we can call uniquely Baltimore. Unfortunately for this year there is a gaping hole in the fence surrounding the monument due to last week's van accident. Nevertheless, old George will still get his lights.
Baltimore Skyline is about the people, places, and things that make up this great city. It's not just about the steel and bricks of the buildings, but about those that live, work, and play in and around them. Importantly, how to make it stronger, better, friendlier, and more sustainable.
It's about what is old and what is new, the successes and the mistakes, the wacky and the wonderful, what's staying the same, what's changing, and what we might want to see change. In the end, it's pretty much anything else that comes to mind.
