Maryland's biggest and most city-like city, which is basically a living identity crisis. East Baltimore is one of the most unsafe places in all of America. Known for its drugs and STDs, many tourists and even Marylanders are fortunate enough to not experience the horrors of East Baltimore. Ironically, this section of the 410 is also home to Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Hospital.

West Baltimore, on the other hand, looks like Mecca compared to the East. While you still may feel uncomfortable walking through, there is a much lower probability that people will try to hurt you for doing absolutely nothing. Home to the Baltimore Orioles, the Baltimore Ravens, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Michael Phelps.

In West Baltimore, visiting the National Aquarium or eating crabs from Phillips in the Inner Harbor are popular. In East Baltimore, you'll be experiencing a different kind of crab.
-Hey, wanna hit up Baltimore?

-Sure, sounds good, as long as we don't visit the Hopkins side.

The best of the worst of American cities.

Highest incidents of violent crimes.
Highest rates of stds.
Heroin capital of the US.
Mayor tries to campaign on getting the murder rate under 300.
The third worst dressed city.
The fourth worst city for urban youth behind Detroit and Atlanta.
Ranks 192 out of 193 for best drivers.
Some of the worst schools in the state.

Locals will try to convince you that the whole two blocks of the Inner Harbor, which was a last ditch attempt to save the city, is a redeeming quality.

It is funny to watch Raven's fans try to talk smack about established franchises like the Steelers and Redskins, though no one went to a game till the Raven's went to the Superbowl.
What is even funnier is that Poe might have been a Giant's fan, considering he spent more time in New York.

The second arguement is that every city has crime. Every city has a deli too, doesn't mean you want to eat there.

Baltimore has JHU, the most prestigious medical school in the world, and the med students and interns get mugged on their way to class. The city should consider itself damn lucky the school hasn't moved.

What is going for Baltimore?

Baltimore is a crazy place to live. You can't have a car because it'll get stolen the next day probably by your neighbor. The steets are grimy and the crabs are amazing. Nothing is better than Baltimore crabs. It's got one nice lookn street and the rest is unbearable, but i still love it. Most people depend on football to get them into college and the football stadium towers over the brownstones and townhouses that create the bad ass city. The only goal we can say we accomplsihed is our 2001 super bowl title and the highest crime rate in America. No place more original. Oh and don't where a yankee's/Giants shirt or you wont get out alive.
if you don't like Baltimore you can suck my dick.

I have lived in Baltimore all of my life. There is absolutely nothing good about this city. 50% of its residents are below the poverty line. These same people are uneducated to the extreme and proud of it. It is these people who claim to be "da best".

In fact there is no way that this city can compete with other functioning cities. There is no way that this city is going to survive the rise of Europe and the rise of Asia.
This is a dangerous city. If you walk from one end of this city to the other, you are guaranteed to get robbed, beaten, or killed. That is not a joke.

Breeding grounds for HIV, herpes, syphillis, gonorhea, etc.

There are about 300 murders a year. The city will not get over its racial divisions. Unemployment is high. Drug addiction is a severe problem. The high African American population and the white response to them, sad to say, is one of the major causes of the city's decline.
Oh, so you are from Baltimore.
I went there last month and got my wallet stolen.

A city which has the second highest crime rate in America, among the worst public schools in America, and a facinating condition whereas walking for 5 minutes in ANY direction will land you in a crime infested neighborhood.

I lived in Pittsburgh, Boston, Washington, Chicago, and Baltimore. Trust me, Baltimore is the worst.

For those who blindly defend Baltimore, you probably don't know what a real city is.
