They tell me that the city is too small, lacks culture, sophistication and vision. They say Baltimore is not a good city that doesn't encourage their natives to build, create and sustain businesses, social and cultural outlets, they'd rather wipe the asses of out-of-towners who just use Baltimore as a professional stepping stool. They say the city is boring as watching damp carpet dry outside in the dead of winter. Interesting...

If you are young and a native of Baltimore, isn't it natural to want to experience some other cities, cultures, geography? I know this town has a huge population that has never lived anywhere else but I hope young people would experience other places before settling here professionally. There IS a world outside of Mobtown.

I take issue with black people being referred to as "natives." You aren't fooling anyone with your language choices, Infinite.

Based on posts here, I doubt you have had a conversation with anyone black in some time.

Baltimore isn't a yuppie city, that and NYC and DC are close by. Yuppies tend to be nomads, ALWAYS moving with their job.

Old man you like a broken record, saying the same nonsense over and over again. "They tell", "They say", "They rather", "They say", f-k is the old man talking about? If you don't like the city, roll out. I don't like the high taxes in Maryland but I choose to live here. I can relocate if I wanted to. It's not hard. Every thread you crying about the same thing.

I beg to differ. Baltimore definitely has it's share of yuppies. I have no problem with that, most big cities in America have them.

I think it is insane to say most Baltimore born professionals leave. Did you see any of the videos during the super bowl run, I don't think those were transients feeling the moment in Fells, Federal Hill, Canton and all over. Baltimore is much less transient than most cities and there are a lot of jobs here. We are continually ranked a top 5 city for college grads.

And this city is filled with young professionals right now, much of the South Peninsula and Southeast Baltimore which takes a a huge chunk of the city. As well as Mt. Vernon, Hampden, Charles Village and other growing areas.. tons of young professionals

This.

Statistically speaking, on average college students go to school about 50-100 miles away from home. Numbers are increasing for students to take advantage of out of state higher ed options but the carrot of solid financial aid from the school is the draw; most families are unwilling to pay the much higher freight just so their kid can go to school out of state. It's also not uncommon that if your city has got some good time options, students stick around post-college. Cost of living is low here and the national economy is still getting its sea legs. If I were a student I would rather ride it out here than move back into my parents' house. So again, not transient.
