Join us to explore invisible public spaces hidden in plain sight on this approximately 90 minute Inner Harbor alternative walking tour.

 

Baltimore's Inner Harbor is a celebrated success of waterfront redevelopment, but its spectacular looks disguise a contested past and challenging present. Discover the real stories of how powerful people, visionary plans, and community movements are still transforming the former industrial wharf into a premiere public space for all. Secret loading docks, coded brick patterns, environmental engineering, and forgotten monuments all reveal Baltimore's hidden truths.

The Inner Harbor Baltimore Drift includes:

A people's' history of Baltimore's waterfront transformation

Creative interpretations of architecture, urban design, and the harbor

Playful, participatory activities revealing who can do what where

Funny smells and free souvenirs

Tickets for the walking tour are $15 each and can be purchased at at newpublicsites.org.
