This is no April Fools joke- Federal Hill has been showcased in two magazines, Washingtonian and Baltimore Magazine!
Federal Hill was one of only three neighborhoods featured in a “Best of Baltimore” article in the April edition of Washingtonian and the title of the article, “Good Views, Good Fun”, seems to fit Federal Hill very well.
The article showcased Whimsy, Curiosity and Artesanos Don Boscos, all on S. Charles, a must-go for shopping in Federal Hill and Scarborough Fair Bed & Breakfast as a place to stay and enjoy great food. As for recommended nightlife, Washingtonian provided a place for everyone, from the “popped-collar, frat boy” to the music lover: Ropewalk Tavern, Mad River Bar & Grille, Nick’s Seafood Inner Harbor in Cross Street Market, and 8X10 Club.
The article in Baltimore Magazine’s “neighborhood issue”, written by AMY Grace, former board President and current ex officio member, explains why she loves Federal Hill. When she moved here in 1996, the business district was struggling and community resources were scarce. After many changes, AMY now names Federal Hill, “Baltimore’s ‘historically hip’ place to call home.” The Insiders’Tips sidebar lists Dangerously Delicious Pies, SoBo Café, The Book Escape, Illusions Bar & Lounge, Cross Street Market and Ryleigh’s Oyster as musts.
Pick these two issues up and see for yourself!
