Big Fish, Little Pond: Phelps Back to Baltimore

I was born and raised in Baltimore and moved to Manhattan in 1989.  Although I very much identify myself as a New Yorker and can’t imagine living anywhere else, it is very hard not to jump on the Baltimore bandwagon now that Michael Phelps has won 8 Olympic gold medals!

An astounding and inspirational achievment by a native of Baltimore!  Now Phelps is buying a sexy condo (check out what you get for $1.69M) in Fells Point (via ZillowBlog) and rumors are swirling that he may even be buying his old training ground, The North Baltimore Aquatic Club in an effort to create a state of the art Olympic training facility.  Now that would really put Baltimore back on the map.  It’s a good thing, because it’s not likely the Orioles or the Ravens (for the record, I’ve been a Steelers fan since the age of 4) were going to have anything to do with Baltimore’s resurgent popularity.
