Before, describing the world of Baltimore (Baltimore Prep/North Baltimore) it is important to make several key descriptions about the physical and geographical layout of Maryland and more importantly Baltimore City and County. First and foremost, contrary to other parts of the nation the idea of town or township does not exist. In other words, Baltimore County is not broken down into a series of townships each with their own mayor and municipal services. Instead, the area of Baltimore County is broken down into neighborhoods or communities outside and surrounding the city of Baltimore. In addition many of these areas are not separated by vast areas of fields or forests but are actually connected to each other. Baltimore communities can be described as liquid, flowing into each other with no clear distinction. Such distinctions are only made for reasons like providing area codes and rec. councils. In addition no one from these communities say that they are from these areas; everyone says that they are from Baltimore. However, if one Baltimorean is conversing with another Baltimorean about where they live then these area names become applicable. Those who attend private schools are the by-products of the school and of the area they live in.more...
Baltimore County, while containing a decent population, does not have the markings of a densely populated area. Most of the communities are fairly forested and would resemble the distant suburbs of many other metropolitan areas. Theref...
"Crabcakes and football- that's what Maryland does!" - Wedding Crashers.more...
This quote from Wedding Crashers is very accurate, however, it is more lacrosse that Maryland does rather than football.
Maryland is full of extremely rich people as well as poor people. It is the home of Baltimore's beautiful suburbs and its' horrible ghetto as well as the very prestigious suburbs of Washington D.C.
Rural Maryland exists far out from the cities and their suburbs- very far out. It consists of many beautiful farms with acres of land and many large homes for those people who want to live far from the city. Southern Maryland contains most of the rural areas, however, right next to the bay is hardly farms, but more bay houses and neighborhoods. On the eastern side of Maryland across the bay, besides the beautiful bay homes, there is lots of land and farming, lots of sailing, and lots of crabs.
Maryland is also the "lacrosse capital of the world". All over Maryland breeds unbelievably talented lacrosse players- both male and female. The many public and private schools all over Maryland have extremely good lacrosse programs and players from Maryland schools often go play at the top Division One teams.
Maryland is the home of Baltimore's extremely beautiful suburbs as well as Baltimore's very corrupt ghetto in the city. The suburbs of Baltimore consist many extremely good private schools- many of which are single-sex. These schools also have the best high school lacrosse program...
