North Collington, North Wolfe and North Chapel are straight shots (pardon the pun) to Upper Fells and Butcher's Hill.
At least three shot in East Baltimore - baltimoresun.com
Be careful out there.

Upon reading the article, one notices that these incidents occured in the 1900 and 2100 blocks of
Collington and Cliftwood Streets. That's a very long way from Butchers Hill-more than 20 blocks, the equivalent of almost two miles. That's like saying oops--there was a shooting in the Bronx so lock your doors in Manhattan tonight.

Not even close to Upper Fells or Butcher's Hill. Nice try

Where this incident occurred which is Clifton Park (?) is shady. Here is a map to see where it is:

I'm surprised bawlmer missed this one. Guy stabbed in the 1700 block of Lombard. Now, THAT's Upper Fells Point.

One notices "straight shot" as well. Meaning direct route, less than two miles, easily travelled by guys with guns willing to use them. Where do we get the notion that bad guys stay in their own hood all the time?

So now any area within 2 miles of a bad area is bad as well? Sure, criminals can go there if they want, but 2 miles is pretty far in terms of city blocks. That's like a 10-15 minute drive, let alone walk.

Give it a break.

Maybe you need to see a doctor for your issues.

Unfortunately... I think this trend is going to continue particuliarly in NE Baltimore as residents are relocated or move out of East Baltimore because of the Hopkins redevelopment. Fells Point, Upper Fells Point, Butchers Hill, Patterson Park type of redeveopment is pushing East Baltimore into NE Baltimore. Now those 'crews' in NE Baltimore are having to compete with the displaced criminal elements from East Baltimore and you will naturally have conflict. Also, many of the larger homes in some of these neighborhoods are/have been converted into rooming houses which attracts a different type of resident in some cases... I hope they get a handle on it quick.. Alot of progress has happened in NE Baltimore.. particuliarly in Lauraville, Hamilton, and Ednor Gardens.. I would hate to see that trend reversed.

I think things will continue to improve in some parts of NE Baltimore and continue to decline in others. I expect a lot of the crime to be moved east of Harford Rd within the next 10 years or so, and hopefully there will be less of it.
