Building and Strengthening Neighborhoods and People

Postcard Project

We believe that Baltimore is a city of extraordinary neighborhoods, communities, and people. Each of them is worth fighting for. We are more than one community or one cause and we stand ready to engage and collaborate with anyone who shares our commitment to a stronger, more prosperous Baltimore for everyone.

This belief in Baltimore is what led Strong City Baltimore to kick-off the Neighborhood Postcard Project, an effort to change the perception of a place by showing positive stories and attitudes. Created by San Francisco-based artist Hunter Franks in 2013, the Neighborhood Postcard Project has been implemented in 14 cities worldwide including New York, Portland, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.

Strong City designed and distributed hundreds of postcards that read “Greetings from Baltimore” at this year’s Neighborhood Institute on April 17, 2015. Attendees were prompted to answer the question, “What makes Baltimore a strong city?” in writing on the back of the cards. Their responses are below.

All postcards will be mailed to random recipients across the country in an effort to improve public perception of Baltimore. If you’d like to participate in our Strong City Baltimore Postcard Project, contact Emma Simpson.

We love you, Baltimore!
