Today, it's another edition of Midday in the Neighborhood, an occasional series in which we've set out to spotlight the remarkable tapestry of communities that make up  the city of Baltimore.

Tom is joined in Studio A by representatives of three Baltimore neighborhoods: 

Greenmount West, located just north and east of Penn Station; 

Ridgely’s Delight, which is that historic little wedge downtown between Camden Yards, the University of Maryland Medical Center and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.; and

Canton, the large waterfront community just east of Fells Point.

Lauren Kelly-Washington is president of the Greenmount West Community AssociationBen Marks is the president of the Ridgely's Delight Association. Michael Woollen is a member of the Canton Community Association and the founder of Canton Canopy, a neighborhood tree planting program.
