Hagerstown is a small "city" in Western Maryland, surrounded by small towns full of rednecks, such as Williamsport, Boonsboro, and Clear Spring. Possibly one of the most messed up cultures in the United States, where white people can be "friends" with people of color, and yet be racist at the same time. Also, Confederate Flags can be seen hanging from stoops downtown, and nobody seems to care.
The youth of Hagerstown basically have nothing to do, thus they resort to committing crimes and loitering in places that seem to be public, such as the Valley Mall, but then get kicked out for being there.
The "Ghettos" of Hagerstown would include (But not be limited to) Noland Village, Johnathan Street, and Locust Street. Other real-estate is very expensive and hard to find cheap, so the majority of people live in the "city".
Other places in Hagerstown 'of interest' would be Dual Highway, commonly called "The Dual", where there is nothing but car dealerships and fast food restaurants. A common sight on Dual Highway would be Friday and Saturday Night Racing.
Downtown Hagerstown is inhabited by people in wheelchairs, who for some reason like to "hang out" at the town square, which is the four corners of Potomac and Washington (streets).
"Major" places in Hagerstown would include The Valley Mall, Robinwood Medical Center, the Pool Hall, City Park, the Wal*Mart Shopping Center, Fairgrounds Park, and Turner's Bowling Alley and Skating Rink in Halfway.
The Music from Hagerstown is usually just bluegrass musicians that always seem to play at the Square and Fairgrounds Park. Other music would include Heavy Metal bands, and Skrap Music, a mixture of all different genres, usually put together with humor. Hagerstown's only Hip-Hop radio station, "Wild! 96.7", is usually the only thing that is listened to in resident's cars, despite the fact that everyone complains about the station's "over-play" reputation.
Hagerstown's only ties to actual cities would include Baltimore, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. But, there is also a strange, un-explained tie to people moving to Hagerstown from New York City, particularly Brooklyn.
All in all, Hagerstown is a fun place to live if you are fat, have a mullet, at the age of 47, or if you have a strange fetish for buying and/or racing cars.
If you like racing cars, buying cars, or fat weathermen, you should live in Hagerstown Maryland.
