Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania, right over the PA/MD line, is a rapidly changing suburb of Baltimore/and York, depending on how you want to look at it.Though close to york,Shrewsbury is a major relocation center for people moving in from Baltimore County,from places such as Dundalk and Parkville,and Hampden down in the city due to their proximity to I-83,the similarity to the above white baltimore neighborhoods,and the convienience of a town placed away from the big city.Shrewsbury used to be corn fields and had quite a few hicks.Now,most of the hicks have moved out to Glen Rock and the corn fields have been replaced with shopping centers and new housing.The new housing is racially diverse compared to the old-town Shrewsbury,thus bringing much change to the area.The population has jumped from around 3000 to about 5000 since the last census,and it's growing pretty fast around here.I moved here 2 years ago,and the changes have been for the better.2 years ago it was full of hood posers and preppy faggots,and not as crowded.Now,it is more diverse in the types of people,(unforunately still containing some preppy faggots),but it is becoming more racially,culturally and economically diverse.It is a lot more chill now.Crime is limited to occassional fist fights,and once in a great while there wlil be a young hood poser stabbing his drug dealer from the city in the back because he realizes hes fucked.But there is a lot of property crime,and there are some hardened people moving in.A lot of cars get broken into and stolen,I know,I live in the old townhouses and it happens all the time,and robberies happen A LOT at the local stores.The cops are crooked,and will go after anybody walking too fast.Most of them sell drugs.The Rutters at Market Square is where you will be accused of being a drug dealer;;dont shop there.
The South side of town is Baltimore transplants,the North side is various preppy county transplants.The south side of town is a much cooler place to be than north.The south side is mainly people raised in Shrewsbury or from Baltimore City,and the North is mainly people from Baltimore County,the middle of nowhere,or a really gay place you'll probably never hear of and are complete wannabes.THe south side of town is where it's at,believe me,it is where you will hear at least 538 rap songs a day if you open your window near Mount Airy road.If yoyu go to the North Side,that will be limited to 2,and they will both suck ass,the rest is old people music or heavy metal.Susquehannock blows,New Freedom,except for downtown New Freedom,is preppy assholes and hood posers as well.Glen Rock has a lot of hicks,but at least they admit it.Unfortunately they can be extremely annoying,uneducated,and rude.And the rest of the school district is the middle of nowhere.So there you have it, Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania in words.Come check it out sometime lol since we're stuck here.
