I'm considering a position located in Belcamp, MD but would want to live in Baltimore because I'm in my early 30's and single.

Would this be a miserable commute at 8AM and back home at 6PM or is traffic much thinner since I'd be hopefully heading in the opposite direction of most?

Would living on the NE side of Bmore (Patterson Park for example) as opposed to neighborhoods on the other side of town be a necessity?

Any opinions are appreciated.

That wouldn't be too bad as you're right you would be going opposite of a lot of the traffic, but it would definitely be a lot easier if you lived on the east side of Baltimore

You are correct that traffic would be relatively light because of your reverse commute. I commuted from South Baltimore to Aberdeen Proving Ground from 2002 to 2004, and it was about a 45 minute drive. I got the commuter plan from EZ Pass to reduce the tunnel toll at the Fort McHenry tunnel.

However, I recommend Canton. It is very easy to hop on I-95 from there, and you would be east of the tunnel. If you're working right in Belcamp and not on APG, your commute could be as short as 30-35 minutes.

Have you considered the Northeast suburbs such as Parkville, White Marsh, Overlea, Fullerton, Perry Hall, Essex, etc. It would make your commute a lot more bearable.

Those areas aren't bad in terms of commuting times, but for a single 30something who enjoys some nightlife, Canton or Fells Point are much better choices.
