Harborplace/Inner Harbor is nice. Really nice.

Go two blocks outside of it and suddenly it's not nice anymore (see: decrepit, crime-ridden). The "economic development" was totally localized. The developers got the land for a song by promising that the development would revitalize the whole downtown -- they lied. Almost no area inhabitants benefit, or benefitted, from Harborplace.

It's hard to say that Harborplace is actually in Baltimore, as it is so radically different than the rest of the city.
