Dream realized: "We have always dreamed of living in the city [and] the experience has been terrific," said Pauline Hildebrandt. "We love being able to walk to so many things, love all the activities available for us and our kids and grandkids, and we love the wonderful friends we now have in Baltimore." She also says her favorite place at home "is the rooftop deck with the fantastic view of the city. We love to go up there in the evening and watch the sunset and the lights of the city come on."
Personal touches: "We have several paintings by my late father, Joe Snyder. They are treasures because they are beautiful pictures that I see every day and remember my dad," said Pauline Hildebrandt. These paintings include a landscape of a river under a bridge where her dad used to fish as a boy and a portrait of the face of a pensive Jesus, done in multiple shades of sepia paint.
