Franchot to Tour Locust Point Before National Night Out Events Tuesday

Locust Point Steamers and McHenry Row key stops on his tour


Comptroller Peter Franchot


Mr. Franchot will begin his Baltimore tour Tuesday evening at Locust Point Steamers where he will present a proclamation to owner Bud Gardner honoring the iconic crab shack's 25th anniversary. This critically acclaimed restaurant has been voted one of the best crabs houses in Baltimore.

Next, he will join developer Mark Sapperstein on a walking tour of McHenry Row. This mixed-use $42 million development is part of a critical reinvestment in Baltimore City, offering spacious living in an urban setting chalked full of amenities for residents.

The Comptroller will round out the evening participating in three National Night Out events in Baltimore. He will begin his tour at the Glen Improvement Association, followed by Langston Hughes, and then move on to the Halethorpe Civic Center. National Night Out is the annual community building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships meant to foster involvement and create safer, more livable neighborhoods.
