Baltimore is a major seaport, an economic hub and Maryland's largest city. "The Greatest City in America" is located 38 mi (62 km) northeast of Washington D.C. and 105 mi (170 km) south west of Philadelphia, at the head of the Patapsco River estuary, 15 miles (24 km) above Chesapeake Bay in north-central Maryland, United States. Baltimore is not part of any county, making it the largest independent city in the United States
The area of today Baltimore was settled by English colonists in the early 17th century. For the tobacco trade with England the colonial government of Maryland created in 1706 the Port of Baltimore at old Whetstone Point of today South Baltimore. Some years later in 1729 the City of Baltomore was founded, it was named for Lord Baltimore (Cecil Calvert), the proprietary governor of Maryland. Baltimore Town grew rapidly in the 18th Century as a granary for sugar-producing colonies in the Caribbean.
Today Baltimore has a population of about 622,000 inhabitants (est. 2015). 2.7 million people live in Baltimore-Towson metropolitan area.
Formerly a center of steel processing, shipping and auto manufacturing, today Baltimore's economy is based on low-wage services, which accounts for 90%! of jobs in the city.
Baltimore is home to the University of Baltimore, the University of Maryland, Towson University, and the renowned Johns Hopkins University, founded in 1876.
