In the news[edit]

Here's a fun read [1] by a blogger who took the tour recently! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 14:05, 21 August 2011 (EDT)

Greenmount Cemetery...[edit]

Just like to point out a slight error in the North Central section:

The cemetery where Omar 1st meets McNulty & Greggs isn't Greenmount - it's actually Holy Redeemer Cemetery on Belair Rd. The entrance that McNulty uses is located along Moravia Rd - there are two, I can't really pinpoint which one they use.

If you look at the scene ( - skip to about the 5:00 mark), you'll see that the roads of the cemetery they used for filming are all straight, as is the orientation of the graves. For the most part the roads in Greenmount are curvy. Also, the green-domed tower in that shot is definitely from Holy Redeemer - I checked it out Google Earth.

I don't remember Greenmount being mentioned in the scene but the producers may have been trying to pass Holy Redeemer off as Greenmount or another graveyard closer to downtown. —The preceding comment was added by (WT-en) Tommyt1971 (talkcontribs)

Good eyes! I wonder if that was my mistake or one that I borrowed from elsewhere ;) In any rate, I don't think it's worth putting Holy Redeemer Cemetery in this tour, just since it's a little too far away from the other "attractions," but nice to have it documented on this talk page, at least. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 20:05, 28 June 2012 (EDT)
