The inside of the Baltimore Node’s space inside the Load of Fun Building
In need of a home is the Baltimore Node.
A member-run organization through which people come together to make interesting things — like miniature models from 3D printers and slingshots meant for launching life-size Angry Birds across a room — the “hacker” collective has been without a permanent, physical space since the closure of the Load of Fun Building in Station North in August.

As Baltimore City Paper reported in September, a city inspection (prompted by an anonymous 311 call) found that the front half of the second story of the building “was not in compliance with [the city’s] ‘use and occupancy’ zoning.”
Now the Node is searching for a space to rent with “1,000+ square feet for a tech group with some workshop needs that could rent for 1,500 a month,” according to a post on the Baltimore Tech Facebook group. (With the added caveat that members know they won’t be “stabbed or shot on their way in and out.”)
If you have any leads on potential spaces, e-mail Hasdai Westbrook: hasdai AT gmail DOT com.
According to the Facebook post, the Node is interested in spaces in North Baltimore, in the Hampden and Station North neighborhoods, or somewhere close to Johns Hopkins University‘s Homewood Campus.
