For the Baltimoreans

Fells Point's Recreation Pier to be turned into a Hotel

Recreation Pier in Fells point maybe recognized to many outside of Baltimore as the police station in NBC's hit show, "Homicide: Life on the Street," but to Baltimoreans, the pier was a historic landmark that was anchor not only to Fells Point but to the waterfront as well.

Today the city of Baltimore is preparing to sell the pier and it's historic structure to developers who will develop the property into a new W Hotel and restaurant. The developers will also make costly repairs to the pier which is deteriorating and poses a risk to the foundation of this historic structure. The proposed hotel will have 130 rooms and a restaurant on the top floor over looking harbor.
