This building is located in one of the most visited neighborhoods in the city of Baltimore , Maryland .
It’s the Inner Harbor .
The Inner Harbor is one of the top tourist attractions in the city.
I’ll talk about my visit to the Inner Harbor in a later post.
On this day, September 11th , I thought it’s only right to mention one of the tallest buildings in the Inner Harbor .
The World Trade Center in Baltimore .
You can go inside the building and get a bird’s eye view of the Inner Harbor as well as some other parts of the city.
However, it’s what’s inside of the building that makes one stop and reflect on what happened on this day 16 years ago in New York City , Washington DC , and Pennsylvania .
It’s the 9-11 Memorial of Maryland .
It’s a simple piece of white marble.
On one side of the marble are the words, “Together we remember the people of Maryland who perished on 9-11-2001.”
On the other side of the marble are the names of the people who were either on the plane from Washington DC that crashed into the Pentagon or those people who lived in Maryland and worked at the Pentagon .
On top of the marble is a mangled piece of steel from the World Trade Center in New York .
It’s a very sobering sight and I wasn’t the only tourist who stopped to look at this simple but moving monument and to never forget what happened 16 years ago today.
If you happen to be visiting Baltimore and go to the Inner Harbor , be sure to stop by the World Trade Center in Baltimore and pay your respects.
