â€œGlobal Harbors: A Waterfront Renaissanceâ€ is the untold story behind one of the worldâ€™s most successful waterfronts. Fifty years ago, Baltimore's Inner Harbor was one of the cityâ€™s worst areas, full of rotting, rat infested piers and trash. Today, it is a worldwide tourist destination and a model for waterfront cities around the globe. Experience the journey - and meet the pioneers - behind Baltimore's Inner Harbor and its impact around the world with â€œGlobal Harbors: A Waterfront Renaissanceâ€. It is a riveting tale told by a journalist-turned-urban planner Martin Millspaugh, and includes first-person accounts from community leaders who accomplished what was once considered nearly impossible. Produced by award-winning journalists Cari Stein and Kim Skeen and narrated by native Baltimorean and acclaimed Hollywood actor/film director Charles S. Dutton, â€œGlobal Harbors: A Waterfront Renaissanceâ€ traces the astonishing transformation of a declining, old, rust-belt city into a waterfront metropolis that inspired the world.
