Affordable Housing - 1/4/2011

Good for vacation, probably not for living - 12/7/2010
My husband and I visited Baltimore for about one full day while on my honeymoon to DC in May '09. We are from Phoenix and the east coast was a huge and much welcomed change of pace for us! We were so pleased with proximity of all of these interesting and historical locations just a short train ride away from each other. I really enjoyed the time we spent in DC and Baltimore(went to an Orioles game and walked around for a little while.) But, just from what I witnessed during our short time there was the poverty and interesting nooks of good vs. bad housing locations. I have watched many episodes of "The Wire" and went in kinda of knowing what to expect. We walked from Penn Station to Camden Yards and never once felt unsafe. Granted, this was during the day but I didn't feel like anyone was following us or bothering us for loose change. We stumbled upon Faidley's in Lexington Market and they were the most delicious crab cakes I have ever had. All in all it was a good trip but I Read More

A mostly rough city with a few good areas. - 9/30/2010
I was disappointed with Baltimore when I moved here. While I heard that the city was rough, I wasn’t expecting this. Most of the city is rough with good “pockets”. You can be on a street with $800k homes, walk two blocks up and it looks like a war zone.

The people are friendly enough. And if you’re into the bar and club scene there are a few areas I would hang out, but not many. Some of the areas t the city are Charming (hence the nickname Charm City), but for the most part I wouldn’t want to be caught out at night. I think the housing is overpriced for what you get. If you notice a house on the market that’s pretty cheap with fancy upgrades, RUN! It’s probably in a bad area.

The job market is ok, depending on what field you work in. I work in healthcare so I had some options. Overall I think Baltimore is just a city that’s run by corrupt greedy individuals that care nothing about the residents and more about themselves, and boy does it show! Needless to Read More

Arts and Culture - 5/29/2010
Baltimore has a great symphony and MD Institute College of Art, close proximity to New York, DC, Philadelphia art centers and is relatively cheap to live in compared to those other cities. There are many cultural events if you are so inclined to participate in them.  Read More

bmore - 12/30/2009
All i know is Baltimore. We live 15 minutes north in Perry Hall. Very diverse and very affordable compared to Howard, Anne Arundel and Montgomery Counties. B is full of great live music, new food and small communities. The problem is you cant venture beyond MLK BLVD is you value your life. Yes, people talk about crime, but B takes it to the highest violent level. Its sad, but the city government is so racist that they turn a blind eye to the huge Gang problem that is tearing the city up. The police have their hands tied. It you want to live in the city, go to Fells, Canton or Federal hill. Other than that, go north outside the beltway. Ocean and mountains are both 2.5 hours away. The bay provides awesome boating and water sports. Be safe when you Read More

Only gets worse - 10/24/2009
NOTE - The Baltimore METRO area is not so bad - but once you cross that city/county line ....Anyone who is considering moving into Baltimore City should really do their homework. This city has a really bad crime problem, and the votors seem to be bent on urban suicide with electing the least-qualified to public office. The Inner harbor has declined a bit but is still reasonably nice, but once you head east, west or north a few blocks, it is bad. Johns Hopkins has built the new BioTech Parks and provides housing - this is attracting medical researchers to move here - I don't care if they provide armed security guards 24/7, this is not a people-friendly city. We used to rehad properties in the Highlandtown/Patterson Park area and had so many tools stolen and vehicles broken into that we just gave up. "A word to the wise is Read More

Life in Baltimore - 6/25/2009
I have lived a lot of places and find the Baltimore area to be diverse, but dirty, way overpriced, and the crime rate is really high. Hot and humid in the summer, cold, grey and rainy in the winter. City has lots of culture and history, would be nice for a Read More
