Look right down Redwood—it's a one way street so you won't be able to turn right, but note that at the end of the block is the one-time location of '''Werner's Diner''' (permanently closed as of April 2011), a famous old Art Deco Downtown diner, and a recurring filming location to show the politicians meeting up to talk shop.
''Now turn right onto Baltimore St''. At the end of the first block on the right is The American (currently occupied by a 7-11, Edible Arrangements, and other boring businesses), the interior of which was used as '''Kavanagh's Irish Pub''' (the exterior shots of Kavanagh's were filmed at The Sidebar, a lawyer bar by day and punk bar by night, located at Lexington & Guilford. The aforementioned statement about The American is untrue, as the interior shots of Kavanagh's were also shot at the Sidebar), where the police would have wakes for slain officers Keep going straight, and between Commerce St and Gay St (really, those are the names of the streets by accident, not irony) is '''The Block''', the infamously seedy one-block stretch of Baltimore St filled with nothing but strip clubs. Despite the look and the business, it's actually quite safe because, as you will see on the corner of the next block, the city put the real Police Headquarters right next to it. It's not clear that any scenes were shot right here, but rest assured that the spirit of The Block made its way into the series(Omar shot Savino in Season 5 after Savino left the block and turned north on N.Holiday Street).
''Turn right onto the small one-way Frederick St and go one block to Water St''. Just left is the '''Ruth's Chris Steakhouse''' that former Maj. Colvin takes Namond, Zenobia, and Darnell to as a prize for doing well in class. It doesn't go so well, as the students feel uncomfortable and have no idea how to act in this new environment.
