Harborplace update

I was in Harborplace yesterday. Big changes are coming: A new food court, the return of Johnny Rockets and a Ripley’s Odditorium (I’ve been to the ones in Anaheim and Key West). This is in addition to the new Starbucks and Brio Tuscan Steakhouse across the street from the Gallery.

Occupy Baltimore decried this news as “more low wage, no benefit jobs for the Inner Harbor.” I agree with their sentiment, but this city needs jobs and in this economy the city cannot afford to turn away potential employers.

But right now, the entirety of Light Street pavilion is either boarded up or closed down (except for Noodle Company, Urban Outfitters and the northern entrance to H&M). This will probably be awesome when it reopens in the coming weeks, but I still sorry for any tourists arriving this weekend.
