The industrial cityscape in Baltimore was left by the shipbuilding industry and tobacco based economy due to a harbor location making Baltimore a center for the shipping of tobacco and grain. In World Wars I and II, Baltimore served as an important shipbuilding center, but when work opportunities dried up Baltimore lost its reputation and commerce to neighboring regions. It recovered from the subsequent economic crisis that lasted until the 1970s and 1980s and became a tourist-oriented city with the construction of Harborplace, the National Aquarium, and the American Visionary Art Museum.
