Public Administration in Maryland
Maryland is a densely populated state, ranking 19th in total population despite ranking just 42nd in terms of area. Maryland’s capital is Annapolis, but Baltimore is the largest urban area.
Maryland is located at the center of some of the metropolises along the East Coast, home to Baltimore and just north of Washington, D.C. Maryland is also just South of Philadelphia and not too far from New York City.
Maryland is home to the Chesapeake Bay, which is the largest estuary in the United States. Many of the streams and rivers in Maryland flow toward and dump into the Chesapeake Bay.
Baltimore is home to two professional sports teams: the Baltimore Orioles, a Major League Baseball team, and the Baltimore Ravens, a football team.
Maryland has relatively mild winters and hot summers, with short spring and fall seasons in between. Located along the Mason-Dixon Line, Maryland is on the border of the Northern and Southern states along the East Coast. Historically this held a lot more significance, but now Maryland is considered to have more in common with the Northern states in general. Some classify it as part of the Northeast, while many consider it part of the Mid-Atlantic region, along with New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and parts of Virginia.
Some famous people from Maryland include abolitionist Frederick Douglass, national anthem writer Francis Scott Key, star basketball player Carmelo Anthony, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, former NBA player Tyrone “Mugsy” Bogues, hall of fame boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, NFL star Brian Westbrook, television personality Kathie Lee Gifford, actors David Hasselhoff, actor Martin Lawrence, Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and actor Edward Norton.
