Yet visitors can easily revel in Charm City’s tourist economy without having to confront its widespread desperation by sticking to the well-worn paths between familiar attractions. Taking the risks of straying from them, though, may yield broader understanding that comes from eyeballing some of urban life’s more poignant realities. The safest play, but least fun, is to stay home and just listen to the many recordings of Newman’s song.
