Charm City's not-so-charming origin
Given that Baltimore is the home of some gritty areas and people, the nickname "Charm City" seems like it's a little, well, sarcastic, even H.L. Menckenesque. But it didn't start out that way. In 1975, then-mayor William Donald Schaefer asked the biggest names in Baltimore advertising to "Come up with something to promote this city!" Baltimore briefly ran an ad campaign with the slogan, then ran out of money for it. But the Charm City nickname still endures.
