I live about about 30 miles from Baltimore right outside of DC, there are far better areas in the proximity to live than in Baltimore city limits

Also high crime, lots of projects, crappy city government and Maryland is a liberal state with high taxes, but most ppl make more money so that balances out at least

Re: Is Baltimore Maryland a good place to live?
NO!!!!! I LIVED IN THAT HELL HOLE FOR 20 YEARS!!! Run, do not walk to the nearest exit!

I left there in 1982 and only went back once. I regretted returning the one time.

Seriously, it was such a dangerous and filthy place to grow up that I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. That was in the 70's. I can't imagine how bad it is now.

Beg if you have to. Show them my post. Do not go there.

Born there, grew up there in the fifties, sixties, seventies,

Escaped.
Wouldn't go back there if my life depended on it.
Wouldn't go back to the Socialist State of Maryland if
my life depended on it.

If you wouldn't mind living as a white man in South Africa,
then you might not mind living in Baltimore.
If you are a socialist or a communist you might actually
enjoy the people's paradise.

You can find good places. We used to live in Ellicott city / Howard Co. 30 min drive to the inner harbor for work.

Just don't move to Dundalk or the ghetto...

Re: Is Baltimore Maryland a good place to live?
I can tell you from experience. Don't even fucking think about it!!!!!!!! I lived in two different areas, one was in the arts district, the other was in the suburbs, my car was broken into at both locations. The place is filled with drugs, violence and thieves to a level you can't even imagine. Until I recently visited Detroit (I'm on travel for work in Michigan right now) Baltimore was hands down the worst city I've ever seen.

That being said, The Inner Harbor is always worth a visit. Very nice, just be careful because obviously the hoods from the run down area love to go there to make trouble or rob people with money.

Re: Is Baltimore Maryland a good place to live?
Baltimore is a lovely city this time of year, compared to say, Bagdad, Allepo, or Kiev. I would compare it somewhere close to Detroit, but with more people.

Actually, Baltimore is not all that nice, though I do like Annapolis.

Baltimore is a fucking armpit. The Inner Harbor looks very nice as a tourist trap, but once you get out into the city where people live...it's mostly a shit hole.

Try living in the far suburbs (25-50 miles out), commute to downtown if you have to.

What kind of jobs are your son and his wife looking for?

Re: Is Baltimore Maryland a good place to live?
I was out in DC with friends once. It was late. We were supposed take the train to go back to Crystal City and we got on the wrong one heading the opposite direction to Baltimore and ended up in the middle of the ghetto just after midnight. No more trains.

Some nice brothers saw us come up out of the station and called their friend, a cab driver, to hurry up and come get us. They stayed by us until he got there. It took him less than 5 minutes to pull up and we heard shots fired twice.

I'm sure there are some nicer areas, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Re: Is Baltimore Maryland a good place to live?
All depends on the neighborhood. We moved there in '87 from another state, NE part of town above the old Memorial Stadium. We are white and moved into a predominately black area - 90% black. The only whites left didn't leave with the rest of the white flight back in the late '60s and '70s.

I'm sure we were treated much better by our black neighbors than they were treated by the whites when they first moved to the neighborhood.

We were there 13 years and though we had a neighborhood covenant agreement (like a homeowners association agreement) to keep properties repaired, the neighborhood continued to deteriorate. Though prohibited by the covenant, section 8 moved in. As welfare, section 8 and drugs moved in, things waxed worse. Anyhow, we were able to get out at a decent time with decent appreciation on our townhouse. However, as I tell the story, the gunfire I hear at my farm in WV is quite a bit different than that I heard in Baltimore.

It was a good experience for me and my family. My kids are quite a bit more familiar with black culture than the average white kid. I also learned quite a bit about institutionalized racism, dominant culture vs minority and perceived black inferiority. By the way, the covenant agreement still said Negros had to be out of the neighborhood by 6:00 PM.

Though the NE part of the city probably had the lowest crime rate, much of Baltimore is a hell hole. If one had to live there you should go out to the suburbs or in a gated secured area. Some areas have decent security.

Nevertheless, I would not move back to a big city like Baltimore by choice. Though on beautiful spring days like today, I miss watching the skirts walk by at the Inner Harbor at lunchtime....
