While I am not a native of Baltimore, I have lived in the area for six years now, and I've never seen anything quite as accurate as the commentary written by Eileen Pollock ("Baltimore is no New York," Jan. 13). I was born and raised in Boston, which is certainly not Manhattan but it's no small town either. I moved to Baltimore for my job and, at the time, was excited at the prospect of a new and "blossoming" (as one journalist put it) scene. It turned out that the only way I could have been prepared for Baltimore was if I had spent extensive time in Detroit first.
