Sightings: Garbage on the Promenade Part II

A few weeks ago I posted something about an unsightly garbage container on the waterfront promenade. Miraculously, the container has been relocated to the other side of the parking lot with a brand new fence around it.   What a sockdolager!

Sightings: Garbage on the Promenade

Exhibit A: Garbage

While walking along the promenade, I saw this; a dumpster on a private parking lot blocking the vista between the Inner Harbor and the new Ritz Carleton extension. While the structure doesn’t block the walkway itself, it does create a visual obstruction which, for those unfamiliar with the promenade, may indicate a dead-end for east bound pedestrians.

These small things make the pedestrian experience seem like an after-thought and detract from one of the best waterfronts in the country. Baltimore Brew has a good article about this very same issue on a larger scale near the Harborplace pavilions.
