Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania, right over the PA/MD line, is a rapidly changing suburb of Baltimore/and York, depending on how you want to look at it.Though close to york,Shrewsbury is a major relocation center for people moving in from Baltimore County,from places such as Dundalk and Parkville,and Hampden down in the city due to their proximity to I-83,the similarity to the above white baltimore neighborhoods,and the convienience of a town placed away from the big city.Shrewsbury used to be corn fields and had quite a few hicks.Now,most of the hicks have moved out to Glen Rock and the corn fields have been replaced with shopping centers and new housing.The new housing is racially diverse compared to the old-town Shrewsbury,thus bringing much change to the area.The population has jumped from around 3000 to about 5000 since the last census,and it's growing pretty fast around here.I moved here 2 years ago,and the changes have been for the better.2 years ago it was full of hood posers and preppy faggots,and not as crowded.Now,it is more diverse in the types of people,(unforunately still containing some preppy faggots),but it is becoming more racially,culturally and economically diverse.It is a lot more chill now.Crime is limited to occassional fist fights,and once in a great while there wlil be a young hood poser stabbing his drug dealer from the city in the back because he realizes hes fucked.But there is a lot of property crime,and there are some hardened people moving in.A lot of cars get broken into and stolen,I know,I live in the old townhouses and it happens all the time,and robberies happen A LOT at the local stores.The cops are crooked,and will go after anybody walking too fast.Most of them sell drugs.The Rutters at Market Square is where you will be accused of being a drug dealer;;dont shop there.
The South side of town is Baltimore transplants,the North side is various preppy county transplants.The south side of town is a much cooler place to be than north.The south side is mainly people raised in Shrewsbury or from Baltimore City,and the North is mainly people from Baltimore County,the middle of nowhere,or a really gay place you'll probably never hear of and are complete wannabes.THe south side of town is where it's at,believe me,it is where you will hear at least 538 rap songs a day if you open your window near Mount Airy road.If yoyu go to the North Side,that will be limited to 2,and they will both suck ass,the rest is old people music or heavy metal.Susquehannock blows,New Freedom,except for downtown New Freedom,is preppy assholes and hood posers as well.Glen Rock has a lot of hicks,but at least they admit it.Unfortunately they can be extremely annoying,uneducated,and rude.And the rest of the school district is the middle of nowhere.So there you have it, Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania in words.Come check it out sometime lol since we're stuck here.
Exit 4 off of I-83 from Baltimore/York.
You will see a beer shop.
Pass the beer shop and run past the taco bell and mcdonalds.
You will be greeted by a Wal Mart.
Go in and you will be greeted by a bunch of malfunctioning self-checkout lines.
Welcome to Shrewsbury, PA

A town located in MA, very near worcester. Complete suburbian hell, filled with rich snobby white kids and about 5 black kids. Aka : The Bury.
Most children from "The bury" are either total preps or are white kids trying to be black and thuggish.
The Shrewsbury highschool club of black history has about 3 black kids, and 30 white kids in it.

A small village that regularly floods and is located in Shropshire, too close really to Wolverhampton for most people's liking. The town is also nicknamed "Salop", however none of the locals seem to know why. Many refer to it as "The Shire".
Shrewsbury repeatadly floods every day, and the football team have recently re-trained themselves to become water polo players.

A city in Central MA, bordering Worcester,MA, a bunch of white kids, maybe 9 black kids in the high school. In general, kids are either preps or white "gangstas" Weed is common, and many claim they do, and can get harder drugs such as ecstasy, cocaine, etc. yet about 3 kids have access to it. Towns flooded with mids, danks are rare and expensive.

Sometimes nicknamed "Snoozebury" because there is no place to have fun, therefore we smoke weed instead. Theres AMF bowling alley, which is fun maybe twice a year. If your desperate you make the 20min. ride to solomon pond mall, but stay away from greendale mall, shits scary.
Im so fucking bored, theres nothing to do in Shrewsbury (aka Snoozebury), lets just smoke weed.

this town onthe jersey shore. none of the people look or talk anything like the jersey shore people. most of the boys think their cool and hang out with the little silver girls. they all try to be cool and hang out at markam but nobody wants them there. also they hang out behind the park and think their cool because they get drunk. most of the girls are backstabbing bitches. their is one k-8 school and everybody in the town absoutly hates it. they all have iphones and get cars right when they can drive. everybidy knows everybodies buisness because of the stupid gossiping moms. most of the moms have their own facebooks so they can "check up" with their kids who are acting like sluts right in front of their faces. this one by one town is literally the definintion of small town shit

A suburban town in Central MA, bordering Worcester,MA, also known as "The Bury". Theres nothing really to do except smoke weed, get wasted, get "Jammed" or be a "white city rat". Sucks to be the kid smoking mids, in a town full of your so called wanna be gangsters and rich preppy ass partiers comes "dank" quality weed as the cool kids would say. We keep it simple either you have headies or indo, if its anything less than that u get robbed for sucking at life.

Hard drugs aren't difficult to come by; we border Worcester for gods sake it only takes one call, just a very small handful have the balls, connections or are stupid enough to do or get them. There are about 10 black kids in the entire town, they would of been better off being white. Theres very little in this town to be proud of. Theres never anywhere to go so most nights end up being trashed in a parking lot, or burnt the fuck out
-Shrewsbury blows theres never anything to do!
-Lets smoke another blunt
-Alright i got 5 on it. again.
