The Forgotten Baltimore Skywalks, Part 2

Once back at the Convention Center, go up the stairs and cross over Pratt Street towards the Bank of America Center.  You’ll be walking through the building and continuing on the other side.  If you need a break, there’s a couple casual restaurants there, one on the skywalk level (hot and cold food bar) and more on the ground floor.

 

Here’s the skybridge from Convention Center to the Bank of America center building:

 

Once through the building, you’ll cross over a small street with nice views East and West, one towards downtown and the other towards the Bromo Seltzer Tower (now art studios).

 

Walk straight by the office buildings and towards the old abandoned Mechanic Theater which soon should undergo remodeling and turn left to the park plaza.   There’s a fountain and benches available and a few interesting office buildings surrounding the park.  The next (and last walkway) is at the North end of the plaza.  go up the stairway and over the bridge towards the Sheraton and Radisson hotels.

Towards the Sheraton and Radisson hotel:

 

The last part of this walk is just ahead- cross the street and go to the plaza area in front of the tall BGE building.

That’s the end of the tour of Forgotten Baltimore Skywalks.  From here, you can walk up Charles Street to see some nice old buildings, shops, and restaurants.  I hope you liked this post, and enjoyed the nice views and quiet environment above and away from the busy downtown streets.  Happy exploring!

 

Nearby is a SuperFresh supermarket and the Baltimore Basilica:

    1. Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed it. I don’t work downtown anymore and miss walking above the traffic on the skywalks!

  2. Years ago I attended a convention in Baltimore and discovered the Skywalk. I found it fascinating and spent my off-hours exploring it. It’s a shame that it is being demolished, I thought it an excellent example of imaginative urban planning.
