At the end of the block turn right onto Division St, then turn right back onto Lafayette, then left back onto McCulloh. Right on the corner with Wilson St is Carlton C Douglas Funeral Services , which served as the West Baltimore headquarters for the Barksdale organization throughout the first three seasons. Time to turn around to get back to Lafayette— make a left on Wilson, a left on Druid Hill Ave, and then a left back onto Lafayette Ave.
This will take you into the relatively small neighborhood of Bolton Hill , which while not featured on TV, is undoubtedly Baltimore's most beautiful old neighborhood and a great place for a little aimless drive. Turn right and head back east into Midtown until you reach Maryland Ave.
This section of Charles St has as good a claim as any to being the hippest stretch of Baltimore, largely unknown to anyone but locals. Immediately on the left is the Brewer's Art , quite possibly the best spot for dinner and drinks in the city, and the swanky place where Marlo was seduced by Devonne. Mark this place down for a later point in your trip—it's a true local favorite and for good reason.
Once you reach North Ave, look right for Pearson's Florist , where Bodie headed into "the back room" to get his gangsta flower arrangement for D's funeral. Head back out to North Ave and make a U-turn to start heading back east. This is a good time for a side trip: You're near another fine food establishment that, while not a filming location, was referred to several times in the first season as a favorite place among the gangsters for their delicious coddies, Sterling's Seafood W 29th St.
To get there, turn left off North Ave on to Charles St to 29th, turn left again, and drive eight blocks. Here it's time to hop out and get yourself some delicious food. The coddies may be an obvious choice, but there's a whole long list of seafood items worth your while. To get back to North Ave, just turn left, then left again onto 28th, right on Maryland, and then left on North Ave. Continue east on North Ave until you reach Guilford Ave and turn right. Look right down the alley for Bubbles' garage in the later seasons.
Turn left on Federal St, then turn right on Greenmount Ave to get to the entrance of Greenmount Cemetery on your left. This was the setting for many scenes in The Wire , some of the more memorable of which include D's funeral and the fateful meeting between Stringer and Colvin, where the former betrays Avon by giving up the safehouse location. Coming out of the cemetery, turn right up Greenmount, left back onto Federal St, and then right on Barclay St. The northeast corner of Barclay and Lanvale should be instantly recognizable as Bodie's Corner , where he ultimately met his end.
Head straight back up to North Ave, and turn right and that's all for North Central! NYFC begs a bit of background. It started in New York, run by Afghan immigrants, under the name Kennedy Fried Chicken, looking to impersonate both the initials and the look of the giant Kentucky Fried Chicken chain. KFC objected to this, and has tried, rather unsuccessfully, to stamp out all instances of that name. Owing to the Afghan connection, the franchise found itself in the early years of the 21st century investigated for terrorist connections, but fear not the chicken—the investigation was baseless and yielded nothing.

Continue up to Caroline St and turn right. This area of East Baltimore , especially Bond St two blocks east, was the actual filming location for much of the whole show, including many locations supposedly in West Baltimore. After about ten blocks, turn left on Chase St, then left on Bond St. Look immediately on the right for Marlo's Hangout.
Hop out of the car and into the square Faith Ln to take some pictures if you like, but bear in mind that this is a legitimately rough neighborhood. Continue way back up Bond to Lafayette Ave , and admire the familiar scenery along the way. Turn right on Bethel Alley , and once past Federal St, look left into the alley at the end of the block. This was the location of the infamous Bodymore Murdaland graffiti. The city decided this was bad press and, alas, removed the graffiti. We'll see how long it takes for someone to put it back! A left on Oliver St takes you to Broadway, turn right.
Why is this relevant? Because this is where you get patched up if you catch a bullet! The market is less of a market and more of a Johns Hopkins Hospital crowd food court. There is far superior food coming up, though, at Chaps Pit Beef, so better to wait until you get there. Continue north on Patterson Park Ave for two blocks. The Saveland Food Mart on the left was used in a particularly disturbing scene, where Marlo stole a lollipop in plain view of the security guard, just to show that he could.
The guard went to talk to him outside, asking him why he had to do that, to put his job in jeopardy for no reason. And for that act of bold honesty, Marlo later had him killed. Turn left here onto Federal St , and you will see a very distinctive and beautiful building just behind the Saveland—the recently renovated American Brewery Building.
Just behind the building is an abandoned area where the school kids hung out and played throughout Season Four. Turn right onto Gay St to head northeast. The Rim Source has since relocated to the northeast of the city. At the end of the block, turn left onto Patterson Park Ave. Look left for that crazy pagoda. At the end of the park, turn left onto Ellwood Ave. Just past Gough St, on the left a little ways into the park is the spot where Vondas would meet up with Prop Joe and later Marlo to discuss business.
The benches face away from the street, but they had rotated them to face eastwards when filming. This is a nice time to hop out of the car and stretch your legs. Afterwards, keep heading up Ellwood all the way to the Pulaski Hwy US and turn right to head to the far east of the city. Just past Conkling St on Pulaski is the Executive Inn , where the Co-op would meet up under Prop Joe's aegis to organize their now peaceful drug trade.

You have got to be hungry by now, so it's time for some Chaps Pit Beef , which will be on Pulaski on the right shortly after the second overpass. If the interior looks familiar, it should, as there was a great little Baltimore scene at the main picnic table, where Wee-Bey piled the potent horseradish on his pit beef sandwich. His friends told him he was in for a world of hurt, but the ever tough Bey responded, "the trick is not to give a shit. Chaps is generally considered to have Baltimore's best pit beef, a sort of local "barbecue" producing a very soft roast beef sandwich, which begs for onions and horseradish.
It is properly ordered rare. There are plenty of other good dishes, though, so make sure to eat here!
Head back down Pulaski to Conkling St and turn left. Just past Eastern Ave , look on the right for the old Carcetti Campaign Headquarters , which proudly displayed the campaign signs long after David Simon's film crew had moved on. There's a Vaccaro's on the right, a famous local Italian pastry chainlet, which should make for a decadent dessert if you so choose.
Head left down Eastern and you should see the area where Glekas ran stolen goods out of an electronics store for Ziggy and Nick off the docks. Also, this is where Ziggy ends up going berserk and a shooting rampage. Turn right on Haven St to head south into Southeast Baltimore. Once you get to O Donnell St, you'll see an overpass. Yes, this is the location where McNulty, drunk driving , to the tune of the Pogues' Transmetropolitan , somehow managed to crash his car twice in the same place. Do not reenact this scene. Turn around and then turn left on Dillon St since you can't turn onto O Donnell here.
Turn left on Conkling and go down to O Donnell. Look just left and up for one of Baltimore's most famous icons, the neon Brewer's Hill Mr. If you wait a little at night, he'll wink at you the frequency of the winks seems linked to consumption of the beverage. Anyway, turn right and keep going west through the split around Canton Square , a gentrifying area full of crowded bars.
Turn right on Clinton St to head south along the harbor , into the territory of The Greek. Just past it, you'll come to the so-called Port of Philadelphia remember that all scenes were in fact filmed in Baltimore , a. This place has great spooky, abandoned atmosphere at night. Brown , is today actually a museum ship  , offering several living-history cruises throughout the year.
Just before the end of the road, turn left onto a little side street to find the ramshackle Major Crimes Unit HQ , used starting at the beginning of Season Two. To the right is Seagirt Marine Terminal , a giant port where the Sobotkas and the stevedores union worked throughout Season Two.

Get off at I and stay in the right lane. Turn right onto Conway St and then right again onto Light St. Look right for the Intercontinental Hotel , where the Greek narrowly evaded capture at the end of Season Two. If you can find a parking space, and that's a big if, this is another great place to get out of the car. The views from the top of the hill are probably the best in the city.

Carcetti loved to take strolls around the place to get away from politics and clear his head. McNulty's strolls were less successful, as he fell down the hill drunk while failing to exercise his police authority by stopping some kids from vandalizing public property. A slight detour to Jackson St at the corner of Clement and Jackson will put you at a house that served as the location for Delores' Bar frequented by the longshoremen.
Part restaurant and part wine store, this is a great place for an upscale, but reasonably priced dinner. Senator "sheeeeiiiit" Clay Davis and Stringer Bell agreed with this assessment, and met up for some lunch to discuss real estate. Please do not disturb the residents. At the end of the street turn left on Clement and then immediately right on Andre St. Coming up on the right is the gigantic Grainery , which Nick remarked would soon be turned into upscale harbor-side condos to mark the end of blue collar Locust Point. And indeed, today it is condos. You can't quite get to the filming location, but the very southeast of the fort area is where Vondas wised up to the fact that his texts were being monitored by the police, and then flung his cell phone into the harbor.
You're nearing the end of this long, grandiose tour of the city. Go back to Fort Ave and turn left, heading all the way to Light St, and turn right. Past the Intercontinental, as you are getting into the Inner Harbor , look left for the Hyatt Regency , where Beadie stalked Vondas to room on her reconnaissance mission.
