STS090-712-043 Baltimore, Maryland April 1998
Baltimore, the 12th largest city in the United States and the largest city in the state of Maryland, can be seen in this north-looking view. Named "Charm City" for its residents well-established concern for the quality of life, Baltimore owes much of its growth and prosperity to its location. The city is farther west than any other major Atlantic Ocean port while being strategically located in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. As the United States fifth largest port, Baltimore's location makes it the closest Atlantic Ocean port to major mid-western population and manufacturing centers. The Chesapeake Bay can be seen to the east (right) of the city. The Loch Raven Reservoir is discernible north of the city.
