What do you love most about your community/neighborhood?
JZ: The Hampden/Woodberry/Medfield area is such a great community of residents and merchants working together to make the city more liveable, more vibrant and more diverse. It has all the charm of a classic Baltimore neighborhood, with the historic mills, the Jones Falls, the row homes, HonFest and Hampdenfest. There are so many fantastic retailers, services and restaurants. Not to mention, breweries and bars that support local. All of this adds up to a community that is a must-see for any visitor to the city.
What does Baltimore have that other cities don’t?
JZ: Besides Union Craft Brewing? We have a spirit and a resilience here that is hard to find in other cities. A real sense of place, of connection and a unique, quirky culture. There's a freedom here to be a little off-beat, to create something new and to be yourself.
