Baltimore is the biggest city in Md. It's a place where everybody knows everybody. The only place where the weather can be 100 degrees & 100% humidity lol.
Only 3 other places come close: Detroit goes hard, Philly is our brothers and Jersey is just real with it.

Baltimore=resilience. To make it out of Baltimore is something to brag about. Even people from the projects make it everyday from NY and LA because they are already set up from birth to succeed. Baltimoreans have to truly fight to make it and that's what makes us so resilient.
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.
