Fake foam tombstones, polyester-spun cobwebs, and elaborate “haunted” houses abound during the Halloween season, but if you want to see the real thing, head to Westminster Hall at 519 W. Fayette Street. An 18th century historic burial ground and catacombs, simultaneously macabre and serene, lies directly across North Greene Street from the looming glass tower of the Baltimore VA Medical Center. Edgar Allan Poe’s gravesite attracts the most attention, but many prominent civic and military leaders are buried here.

While the quality of the iPhone camera has gotten better with every new release, I have generally considered it a backup camera for situations when my trusted Nikon DSLR is unavailable. Last month, however, I went on a safari of sorts in my front yard with a set of macro lens attachments on my iPhone 5s made by Olloclip. Although the focal plane was very limiting, requiring the tiny critters to be about half-an-inch from the lens, I found that I was able to get unique angles that would be hard to achieve with a traditional camera.
Throughout the 1970s, there were several scuffles inside the Baltimore City jail, most notably in February and September 1971 among uproar in the Attica, N.Y. jail.
Reports suggest that by the summer of 1971, the state prison in Attica was ready to explode.
