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

By far one of the worse cities to hit America. Baltimore is crawling with crime everywhere, the police force is highly corrupt and will do anything to hide crime that occurs and downgrade the crimes to minor offenses so the Mayor can claim "Crime is down yay!" If that is true then why is there almost 300 homicides every year? Forgot, can't hide homicides or "downgrade" them. Officers have been convicted for raping girls in the stations, robbing drug dealers, selling drugs they confiscate and whatever else they can do. The Mayor claims the city is doing better when in fact, more people are leaving the city rather then coming to it. Work is a word most people from Baltimore have never too seriously. Your lucky if you live to the age of 16 without being shot, stabbed, beaten, robbed, or even killed. The city is extremely dirty and the corrupt police force makes it even worse. I have lived in the city my whole life, (18 years) and now I am leaving it. Don't come to Baltimore, your won't get out alive.

where all of the leftovers are. thats right, where your lost socks, missing pens, and general weird or simply random-ass people end up.
You will see and experience the most random shit just walking down the street. 11:00 o'clock @ night? the streets are deserted, except for 1 or 2 sketchy men roaming... most likely coming from north ave or the blocks past eutaw place. At night its your very own 28 days later. roll up your windows, Propecia is hot on the prawl (see youtube in case your not familiar with that-of the propecia). Hawking a ride is the third most frequent mode of transportation next to riding the bus and stealing bikes. if your under 21, your fucked. I'm sorry. Bars and Power Plant Live are the only remenents of nightlife here since hammerjacks closed down. hey, at least there's still bmore club music and the spongebob dance.
Leftovers go to Baltimore. I.E. MICA and Hopkins people. its limbo on the northeast coast.

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.

A writhing cesspool. Not only is the gene pool shallow, it is stagnant. Yes, everyone looks the same, example: Dundalk. Similar to Calcutta, except that Baltimore has more homeless and more drug users. How do you get there from DC? Take I 95N until you get to the big green sign that says "Ghetto" - if the sign and/or the light pole next to it hasn't been stolen and sold for drug money. Worst city ever. period. Nasty ass place. The only people that like it are people that were born there and have never been anywhere else, which is 90% of the pathetic population. All streets are lined with chicken shacks and hair weavers, oh, and bums too.

A virtual stink hole located in the eastern part of Maryland, Baltimore consists of five principal elements: Ambulances, Drugs, Murder, Black People, and Police.

Going for a stay in Baltimore? Don't leave your hotel room. Need a drink, or a meal? Order Pizza, or go eat/drink in your hotel's bar. The drinks are higher priced because your life isn't on the line. Baltimore's football team is horrible, and home to the NFL's only murderer, Ray Lewis, a person who reflects the city's attitude with great pride: loud, ignorant, abrasive, and dangerous.

Baltimore's Inner Harbor provides a brief bit of relaxation between watching your wallet, running from gangster rappers, and dodging speeding fire trucks. But, sadly, this is pretty much painting a dodge neon the same color as a dodge viper and expecting it to go as fast. The panhandlers, unemployed thugs, and crack dealers will quickly ruin the charm of even something as beautiful as the Inner Harbor very quickly.

For tourists, literally, do not leave your hotel lobby. If you insist, you can probably walk about 1/2 block to 1 block in any direction before you enter a war zone of murder and drugs.
My husband was murdered in Baltimore because he was white last year during our vacation.

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.
