Regardless of your feelings about HBO’s remastered version of ‘The Wire,’ it’s wonderful to see the greatest show in the history of television (to me and other awesome people, anyway) being discussed and revisited so much lately. 12 years after it first premiered on HBO, the channel has been airing a marathon of ‘The Wire’ all weekend. And if that’s not enough for you, you should definitely check out these great before and after photos of some of the most notable locations from the series.

You can see that not too much has changed in the decade or so since we first laid eyes on these locations during the initial run of ‘The Wire,’ but it's still fascinating to revisit these places. If you haven't seen the series, the remastered episodes of ‘The Wire’ are now available on HBOGo, and will be available for digital purchase in January.
