Not far from our house lies Pimlico race course, site of the Preakness, the middle leg of the Triple Crown each year. Horse racing is big, or at least pretends to be, in Maryland.
Pimlico during Preakness is bedlam. Our neighbors rent out their lawns for parking… then spend all the money they make to repair ruts in their lawns, bag beer cans and fast food wrappers and usher drunk millennials off to their next destinations.
Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration, but there are pros and cons to living near one of horse racing’s most famous venues.
Not far from Pimlico lies the neighborhood of Park Heights.
