Baltimore Highlands Draws Community Eye With New Bus Stop

Baltimore Highlands Draws Community Eye With New Bus Stop

A little over a year after the last art piece turned bus stop was placed on an East Baltimore street corner, another took form this weekend. This bus stop is located on the corner of Baltimore Street and Highland Avenue, in the Baltimore Highlands neighborhood. It takes the form of a giant, red pushpin with the words “Estamos Aqui” (We Are Here) adorning the top. The pushpin is intended to mock the Google Maps ‘pin-drop’ function, in an effort to bring attention to the lesser-known neighborhood.
