Reply to "Make the B&O railroad Museum a National Park"

Not sure when you visited,  but while the neighborhood has a long way to go, gentrification is slowly creeping in, mostly from the east.   Along Pratt street, just 1-3 blocks from the museum you can see row homes were bars have been removed from the windows, potted plants in windows, etc, and nice cars in the street.  Yet, a block away, the liquor store appears to doing brisk business...   

Generally seems it's moving in about a block or so a year.  I'll predict this is a double edge sword for the museum.  Once the area is more gentrified, some are going to start to ask about those old rusty trains out front and even complain about the horns from the first mile train ride.
