Thought it would be cool how to see what different groups think of Baltimore

Transplants, Residents who have moved into Baltimore.

Baltimore "Quitters" - People who have lived in Baltimore and left.

Long Timers, Lifelong Baltimore Residents. Obviously People who have spent most/all of their life in Baltimore

College Students Moved to Baltimore for the School living in Dorms.


Poll To Come...

Maybe it will give future residents and tourist a clear picture of baltimore.

Wish I could edit polls, excuse any typos as usual.

I'm a transplant from Western HC and have lived in Bolton Hill for over 3 years. I like the neighborhood and city. The city offers a lot of pluses but I see a lot of wasted potential too. I'm very pleased with the neighborhood.

I will be relocating for school in the near future. I visited Baltimore for an open house and I liked it. However, I am a little concerned about the people. I found some of them to be a little strange. Perhaps it was just me. I am definitely looking forward to the change. I am glad to see the transplants like it. If everything works out, I may stay.

I'm a DC native/resident and I really like Baltimore.
If given a chance I'd move up there.
Its laid back, moderate paced, affordable, down to earth, diverse, and REAL.
Not like DC, which has became expensive, full of yuppies and transplants, fast paced, pretentious, snooty, rude, unfriendly and for the most part, FAKE. I can't stand living in this city too much longer. I mean its home, I was born and raised here but I really do dislike living in D.C. now. The folks down here are grimey as hell, sneaky grimey. In Baltimore I find people to be more up front. In D.C. there is a lot of covert racism from whites and overt racist from native blacks. Race relations in DC is worse than it is in Baltimore trust me. Yeah a lot of our neighborhoods are more integrated now because of gentrification but black people and white people and latinos stick to their own. There are some exceptions but for the most part blacks and whites have a poor relationship in DC. For everything that is wrong in DC black people are blamed for it. Why? Because there are no poor white people in DC like it is in Baltimore. Poverty equals crime and whenever a robbery or shooting happens a black person is a suspect off bucks. Whenever food stamps or affordable housing is brought up = black people. smh.
I know Baltimore has a lot of problems, but I'd be willing to deal with them more than DC's.

I'm thinking about going to college in Baltimore, which colleges have dorms or provide housing?
If anyone can provide me with that info I'd appreciate it.

All of 'em, I think. Doesn't DC have a reciprocal agreement with Maryland whereby you can attend state schools for an in-state tuition rate? I'd look at Morgan State, it has a wide variety of programs at a decent cost.
