Growing up Baltimore

I have decided to write a Blog about growing up in Baltimore in the late 50’s and 60’s. The reason the site is called Baltimore Stoops is because ‘stoop sitting’ was a popular pastime for folks back then on those hot summer nights. They would sit out front on the stoops with the pitcher of beer(if money allowed) and watch the activity taking place during those steamy nights in the city. I’ve often said that there were more characters in that little Southwest Baltimore neighborhood than anywhere else. Perhaps all the neighborhoods were like that back then, because it was a different time. In any event, I hope that my writings will bring back memories to those who lived back there during that time, and perhaps a laugh or two.
