You couldnt pay me to live the city. As much as I love the city the life, I love the peace and quiet of the country life even better. I lived in the city for a year. In that year, my car was broken into 8 times, my house was broken into, there was a shooting around the corner and a junkie overdosed in the house next to mine which was ironically vacant. I've lived in different states / cities and have never encountered the amount of crime I had to endure as a "victim" living in "Charm City". Where I live now reminds me somewhat of the movie Pleasantville. No worries about junkies, no worries about people breaking into cars / homes, and no worries about savages shooting each other over who's corner belongs to who. All I see are kids playing in the street and working class families who care about their neighborhood. The way a neighborhood should be. It's a shame that the majority of the city prefers the opposite.
What part of Baltimore was this? Just curious.
