“Oh yeah, I loved the The Wire.”
The young sales guy at Stirling Castle in Scotland said that to me this summer when I shared that we were visiting from Baltimore. As I left the shop, I immediately thought of the Bon Secours Clean & Green program that I suspected at that moment was operating near “the corner,” mowing a lawn or installing a rain garden.
Baltimore leads the country in many ways that we’d rather not lead, and the HBO shows The Corner and The Wire brilliantly captured some of our metro’s challenges. Yet, the city is also home to many upbeat stories about cool people trying to make this quirky and interesting town better. Located literally on “the corner” near Fayette and Monroe Streets in Southwest Baltimore, the Bon Secours Clean & Green program is one of those stories.
