Friday Photo: Miracle on 34th Street, Baltimore

34th Street, Baltimore
34th Street, Baltimore, January 2013

Tasteless and overzealous or one of Baltimore’s holiday hits? This Friday Photo is of what’s known as “The Miracle on 34th Street,” not in terms of the movie but of the 700 block of 34th Street between Chestnut Street and Keswick Road in Baltimore, Maryland. According to Wikipedia, this display, which is a collaborative effort of all residents on this historic Hampden street, began in 1947 and can attract 1,000 visitors daily. Quirky themes include a Christmas tree made with old vinyls or bicycle-wheel snowmen.

This photo is of 34th Street in daylight, but click here to see photos of this miracle lit up at night.
