People will always come and live there. The poor who can't afford to leave will remain there. Young professionals who aren't raising a family will continue to come where their jobs are.
Very important point. From various things I have read (in particular the Sun's 4 part-er about education). Bottom line appears to be that yes, YPs come to the city and do their thing and the city life is good. BUT... when a child or two comes into the equation. They do a 180 to the burbs. Why? Easy! BC's ed system was is and appears to continue to be a joke. Lots of wasted promises going back years and years with nothing to show. Except a bloated Admin and wasted money.
And now we are starting to see this same garbage happening in many of the Baltimore County Schools. Why? Low income people moving from the city on section 8's that have NO CLUE about how to move up the social.economic and educational ladder.
I have a couple of black neighbors, well educated and very professional, that moved in about 20 years ago. At a BBQ I asked 'well your kids are going to be going to school soon' are ;you looking forward to sending them to the publc schools and eventually Woodlawn High.
Respose? Guido you are kidding with me right? Send our kids into that environment? We moved from the city to get away from that. They are going to private school!
OOOOOOhhhhh KKKKKkkkkk... So here is a couple....that was born and bread in BC...lived as a married couple for years in BC. And they are saying that? And they recognize the the cancer from BC is spreading.
Just for the record this very smart black couple are planning to move ASAP after their kids are finished with college. Why? They don't like the way the area is changing because of black poor flight.
BTW if you all haven't read the 4 part article in the Sun you should .... it is a real eye opener.
