Health Care - 10/24/2013
Maryland has some of the best health care programs in the USA. They include prestigious places like Johns Hopkins Medical Center as well as the chains including the one where I work-Medstar. There are speciality programs including the National Hand Center and the Donor Sites like University of Maryland in Baltimore. Health Care is easy access in Baltimore by bus and Community hospitals offer free services as well through their community health financial programs. Read More

Cost of Lliving in Baltimore - 9/20/2013
Baltimore county was once a fair place to live in. Not any more. the cost of living in the county has skyrocketed Leaving it's middle class, hard working citizens fighting to pay their bills, send their children to school, and buy food, health care ect.
Crime has gong up in the county, even in what was once "nice neighborhoods".Cell Phone thefts are up, destruction of property, robberies and even assault, rape and murder. Illicit drug use is fairly high. Add that now to the fact that the county shut down many factories that kept families going, like Sparrows point and General motors. With the shut down of these two factories alone, families began struggling and many moved away. Then came the tearing down of General motors, the projects on the city county line, and RATS moved into the county neighborhoods. To combat this problem , however, the county decided to cut the number of trash collection days, and spend its money sending out inspectors to see if trash can lids were on Read More

Great Place For Section Eight Voucher Holders-Not - 3/6/2012
I have lived in Baltimore City/County all my life and have worked very hard only to see that the only people receiving help are those that refuse to work or the people that buddy up with the social workers so they can recieve benefits illegally. The cost of living here is sky high and jobs have stopped giving employees cost of living increases to accomodate the rise. Not to mention the apartments and houses here are ridiculously over-priced for the garbage that they offer! The school system here is great for children in magnet schools or private schools. The traffic, not as bad as some states, just plan ahead. And the night life becomes repetitive. So most Baltimorians travel to DC to party. THe city cries broke however the red light cameras speed cameras and new laws are earning millions in revenue! They are doing a pretty decent job rebuilding downtown Baltimore, I must say, but I'd hate to go in detail as to why....its home to me and I love my Ravens but I'm currently looking for Read More

Baltimore as a Whole - 12/23/2011
Yes its a really good city... People have always based Baltmore of what they have seen on the wire and thats not the case. Yes there maybe crime here but no more than that of other cities. I have lived in Baltimore all of my life and quite frankly all of this crap that unexperienced people talk about gets on my last nerve. Most people actually fall in love with city and nine times out of ten do not get their lives threatened so people grow up, sit back and relax, and enjoy this charming Read More

Baltimore: under-rated gem - 12/20/2011
Ten years ago I moved from Southern California to Baltimore for its low cost of living (specifically: I could afford to live here on a part-time salary), vibrant neighborhoods, and ever-expanding arts scene. If you're into a monied lifestyle (everything clean and pretty and homogenous and consumer-oriented) than you are better off in DC. Or San Diego. Or Seattle. But if you are a DIY person, if you value REAL diversity (of race AND class), if you like to be part of making something rather than just buying into something, you might just fall in love with Baltimore - I know I Read More

From a Midwesterner's Perspective - 1/15/2011
I moved to Baltimore four years ago for a job and now I'm trying to get out. There are a lot of things I do like about living in Baltimore but the negatives outweigh everything.

Pros

There are many friendly people here. I've lived a lot of places honestly believe the people are among the friendliest I've ever seen.

Lots of great, inexpensive restaurants.

Easy access to other east coast cities.

Lots of diversity.


Cons

Housing is expensive if you want to live in a nice neighborhood. The property taxes are high which makes it even worse.

Crime is bad. If you live in a nice neighborhood you won't notice it too much at home. But if you work downtown, like a lot of people do, odds are you will get mugged, especially if you're a woman.

Public transportation is really unreliable. The town I moved here from - which had about 200,000 people, had much Read More

Small City - Big Personality - 1/12/2011
If you are looking for a city that is small in size, easy to navigate, yet has a ton of things to do, the Baltimore just might be the city for you. Plus, it's in close proximity to other cities and areas of interest. I have enjoyed living here, so check out information on Baltimore if you are thinking of a Read More
