Sure, some parts are dirty n got their problems and hobos and drugs and violence, but what city doesn't? There are more sexy females within any given 2 block radius than there are in the whole of any other city; plenty of bars, and nearly everything to do in a city filled with life and excitement. The rules are chill, because the police have SERIOUS things to worry about, so nearly anything is acceptable; this city is fun people believe me! The suburbs house the rich kids and are pretty gay, but the city is great! It's building up down here every day.
And yes, there is some crime, but it's concentrated, and usually has reasoning behind it. Don't be stupid and those people will leave you alone; it's actualy easier to get along with down-to-earth Baltimore residents than it is with rich kids in suburban high schools that are assholes, because nobody in Baltimore is snobby! So come on down, why don't you; there's plenty to do and see. Born in Sinai Hospital; Park Heights where u at!!!

My Point: All you Bmore Bashers burn in hell
How bout them O's.
I have lived here my whole life, and I can't imagine being anywhere else. I like to sit at Kisling's and drink a beer while watching the O's kick some Yankee ass on TV. I like walking around the Square (Canton) and jumping into a stool at one of the first bars with their windows open. I LOVE sitting in the cheap seats at Camden Yards cheering on the most underrated team in baseball (just because our payroll isn't ridiculous doesn't mean we aren't good). And I can't imagine missing Sunday night karaoke at Fletcher's with all of my friends.
Most of these definitions are bashing Baltimore. But if you have lived here, you appreciate all of the little things. So we aren't the safest city... Don't be an idiot and wander into West Baltimore after dark. We might not be the cleanest, but the Inner Harbor collects all of the trash that floats through the freaking bay. But we have history. We are extremely cultured. We are Baltimore, and you aren't going to change that.
We do have the STDs and weed, though.
