Nicknames for Baltimore

9 posts in this topic

So far I've come across Charm City, the City that Reads (Bleeds, Breeds), Mobtown, Monumental City, City of Firsts, Tiny Town. I'd like to know about unflattering nicknames as well as flattering. Some good made-up names are welcome also!

Tiny town? That's an unusual one. Where did it come from? I know that "City that reads" was completely mocked (not surprised by that).

I've heard out-of-towners call it "crabtown" and "the big crabcake" lol!! I also think B'more is a popular one.
