The Invention of Downtown: A Virtual Talk by Charlie Duff

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Virtual MD United States
By Donation

How did Downtown as we know it come to be? Charlie Duff explains using London and Baltimore as examples.In 1666, the Great Fire of London destroyed the center of a city of 500,000 people and made 80,000 people homeless. In 1904, the Great Baltimore Fire destroyed the center of a city of 500,000 people, and not one person became homeless. In between those two dates, the North Atlantic cities invented the Central Business District. From Baltimore to London, the centers of cities became places where tens of thousands of people worked and no one lived. Join Charlie Duff, author of The North Atlantic Cities, to find out how this happened and what the architectural results were – and why it didn’t happen in Paris, Rome, and the other great cities of Continental Europe.
