Randallstown

What a shame.

IS IT any coincidence that all of the neighborhoods that are and will be named here are all on the bus lines, and accept section 8 :eek:....CRIME, NEIGHBORHOOD DECLINE, bus lines, and section 8 all seem to go hand, and hand....if you want to escape "THE PLANET OF THE 8,s" .....move off of the MTA BUS LINE, and do your research on section 8 homes and apartments in the area.....it worked for my family, and it could work for yours......and im BLACK :eek:.....so dont even go there....literally. ;)

I lived in Govans. Used to sail sailboats in the wading pool at Dewees Rec center and have Gala Day at the elementary school. Used to have a great pit ham sandwich at the Stadium lounge on 33rd and Greenmount on the way to Colts games. My brother still lives in Govans. It ain't so bad on his street but York Road south of Belvedere is pretty ugly.

My Grandmother lived in Hamilton. Loved going to the Arcade to see a movie, now long since closed. Used to have local bands play summer concerts at Herring Run park. Still have friends in Hamilton. Parts of it are still okay.

If you grew up in Randallstown in the 60's, and 70's like I did you know what was there then that is not there now.

I could ride my bicycle to school, leave it in the bike rack outside the school...UNLOCKED... and never give a thought as to whether it would be there when school let out. Try that today! Same with going to the store, or even the movies. I rode the same bicycle for 8 frome age 8 to 16 years and never owned a bike lock for it.

dude: you racist bro?

Me: No, I just dont like Democrats.

dude: Whats a Democrat?

I also grew up there around the same time. From what I hear about and see on the tube from time to time, it now doesn't seem as safe as it once was.

If you get 1/4 mile away from Liberty Road almost anywhere along there it hasn't changed much.;)

Some of my childhood was spent in Edmondson Heights. We could walk to Charing Cross shopping center or Korvette's without a care in the world. My dad would drop us off at the Edmondson Village Theater for a Saturday movie and pick us up afterward with no worries.

Yo me crié en Highlandtown. Solíamos ir al Gran Teatro para ver películas. Jugué béisbol en Patterson Park. Era un lugar muy bonito, cuando yo era un niño. Me pregunto qué pasó allí?

Locust point is still pretty cool. My Dad, who grew up there when the place was full of Bohunks, Poles, Czechs, Germans and many other European immigrants, always says that he is very proud that it bears no red flags on the City's murder list (maybe one now) . I have been down there on numerous ocassions recently. The yuppies have largely replaced the old schoolers but pretty much all of South Baltimore is a decent place to live. There are always a few bad spots however.

Baltimore County had a lot of great neighborhoods until the MTA moved outside of the city. Once that happened the once great neighborhoods died and became overcome with crime.
