Baltimore is the 20th most populous city in the USA. It is located in Maryland.
An enthusiastic girl started with her own, DIY- decorated padlock. Coincidentally and ironically the whole love locking tradition started in Baltimore, when the padlocks in Paris were officially removed.
To be specific it happened in June, 2015. Until then the number of padlocks is growing day by day.
The love lock fence is located on 21st street between Charles and Saint Paul. The fence is at the end of a parking lot, where a smiley face mural is across.
The locking is totally safe, because the fence is connected to the ground. However, it is regularly checked.
