Inner Harbor Baltimore Drift

By Blog No Comments

Inner Harbor Baltimore DriftAfter years of research, dozens of interviews, and months of planning, New Public Sites is excited to announce our latest walking tour: Inner Harbor Baltimore Drift. The general public is invited to explore invisible public spaces hidden in plain sight on this alternative walking tour of Baltimore’s most recognizable public space.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is a celebrated success of waterfront redevelopment, but its spectacular looks disguise a contested past and challenging present. During the Inner Harbor Baltimore Drift tour, guide Graham Coreil-Allen will uncover 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. Through poetic interpretation and participatory activities, Coreil-Allen will show how secret loading docks, coded brick patterns, environmental engineering, and forgotten monuments all reveal Baltimore’s hidden truths.

Tickets for the walking tour are $15 each. Click here to purchase tickets!
