Core Story: Miracle on the edge of The Core's Wyman Park neighborhood
Fun fact -- the famous Miracle on 34th Street starts (or ends, depending on how you look at it), right at The Core, on Keswick Avenue where our Wyman Park neighborhood stops, and Hampden begins. So Wyman Park residents get to bask in the seasonal glow created by Hamdenites without paying any of the extra electric bills, of their neighbors just a few feet away.
This year seemed like the best Miracle on 34th Street we've seen yet, as the south side of the street, usually an underdog in this battle of the incandescent, has really kicked up its game.
In case you've never seen one, this seasonal festival of light features exhibits devoted to major religious holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah, as well as animistic figures worshipped in the US, like Snoopy. This year there was an especially strong showing by local Baltimore deities such as the Natty Boh man, the Utz girl and pink (and otherwise colored) flamingos. As you know, we like to keep it local, so we decided to take pictures of the flamingos this year. However, there were equally great displays all over the block.
Only in The Core, (or right next to it), keep exploring!
