Baltimore is a major city in Maryland with a long history as an important seaport. Fort McHenry, birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” sits at the mouth of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Today, this harbor area offers shops, upscale crab shacks and attractions like the Civil War–era warship the USS Constellation and the National Aquarium, showcasing thousands of marine creatures. Nearly 24% of Baltimore's population is living below the poverty line, which is $20,090 a year for a family of three.The percentage goes up from there when looking at just children, with 35% living below the poverty line and 61% living in low-income households that have incomes that are less than two times the poverty level.
