The real America. A place of growing optimism amid unprecedented opportunity. A cultural scene that rivals New York's - from live bands to high art. A sports scene that's the envy of the North-East. Best hospitals in the world. Educational facilities that European cities try to imitate. Steeped in history. Gentle climate, with neither the harsh New York winter nor the stifling DC summer. And, of course, there are the CRABS!!!!! CRAB CAKES!!! CRAB DIP!!! You have not had crab until you've had Baltimore crab. But here's the real secret of Baltimore: you can live here for cheap - and I mean CHEAP. Public transport is excellent and inexpensive. Rents are tiny, considering the rates in DC, or even Laurel. If ever you tire of crab, dine at Gertrude's Restaurant and enjoy WORLD-CLASS cuisine for prices you would expect to pay at a diner anywhere else. And you can BUY BEAUTIFUL HOMES for a fraction of the price you would pay for a modest condo in D.C. or N.Y. I moved to Baltimore from Brooklyn, New York. For the price of an apartment there (a full hour's commute to my job in Manhattan) I could have purchased a mansion in Baltimore. My commute to DC is already easy; the planned improvements to the MARC (commuter) rail service will make it even more convenient. For these reasons this city is beginning to sky-rocket, even at a time when the national economy is tanking. Once the MARC upgrade is complete, and the country's economy has recovered, Baltimore willl be boomtown, USA. Even now, Baltimore rocks!
What recession? Life is better in Baltimore.

Beautiful Baltimore Skyline
charm city, baby
Baltimore is the greatest city on earth. Sure its a little dirty, but thats a city for ya. What's there not to love. Going north on 95 at night there isnt a prettier sight. The neon Nati Boh, Domino sugar, and Philip's signs are great. The inner harbor and power plant live. There has to be something great about the city for row houses to sell for upwards of 300,000. And whats not to love about patterson park. And sure theres crime. But it's concentrated. Its not smart to wander onto north ave or greenmont street at night. All i can say is i love baltimore and anyone who bashes Bmore has probably never been here.
How bout them O's.
A city (not in Baltimore County, Baltimore City is entirely separate) in central MD.
Home to many crab cakes, the Orioles, the Ravens, Harborplace, and many other nifty things
One of the best party cities in the world... Well, not if you are: A.) Under 21 and obsessed with letting sweaty yo boys dance all over you; B.)Scared to sit in a cab and have a friendly conversation with your foreign cab driver; or C.)Looking for some sort of "celebrity encounter".
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.
"How 'bout dem O's, hon?"
The city in Maryland that's bashed repeatedly on this site by those who have never been there before. One can easily travel through the East Side of Baltimore with no problem at all: black, white, man, woman. What's more, bands frequently play in the neighborhoods that you fear the most, and they manage to lug their instruments back and forth without any mugging/robbing attempts whatsoever.
We do have the STDs and weed, though.
I walked up and down North Avenue with twenties hanging out of my pockets, and nothing happened to me.
home of the best people in the world! i love bmore! filled with the best people and places in the world!
Baltimore: Best city posible!
Welcome to the home of Crabcakes, Club music, chicken boxes and Crown Vics. From Park Heights to Cherry Hill to Greenmount to Edmonson Village, Baltimore is historic Bitches!!! You gotta love us!
The best chicken boxes are in Baltimore!
A city that thrives on letting you know how hard you REALLY are is NOT how fat your wallet is, or how stacked your portfolio may be. Come correct, or you could be the next statistic they love to examine us by.
Come correct, or don't come.
