I hear people say sink a lot. The who "market" "store" thing is a little different, because they are called "supermarket" and "grocery store". But "on yesterday" I never heard that. I hear people say OINCH...lol

Anyone who's spent more than two hours in Baltimore knows about their strange dialect. They also know that the women there have a penchant for dyed-hair and dudes are still rockin' hair braids like it's '98.

Felicia Pearson is so Baltimore. The look, the accent, and everything.

Baltimore does have a very diverse housing stock, though. Don't know enough about philly housing though to tell a fair story.

I think if i was from anywhere else, i would go with Philly because it is bigger and grander. But I love Baltimore, and i have to go with it. I love the city. I may be moving to either Baltimore or Philly in the not too distant future. So if i do, no matter what city i arrive in, its a win win - both offer everything i could want from a city!
Baltimore's housing stock is actually more diverse than Philly's although Philly has a more diverse population. The old, working class rowhomes in both cities look very similar. But as far as the bigger rowhomes (the former residences of the old upper class/upper-middle class) each city has styles that are unique and not found in the other. For instance, some of the big stone and brick rowhomes along Eutaw street running from Druid Hill Park to about the State Building/Martin Luther King Ave. are different from anything that I've seen in Philly. I actually prefer that style over most of the Philly rowhomes.

As far as the diversity of the housing stock, Baltimore's housing is more diverse than people with only a superficial knowledge of the city seem to think. I think that's because most outsiders only visit the Harbor/Downtown area, and all of the sections of the city surrounding that area are the older, working-class rowhouse areas--that are now either gentrified or still impoverished & deteriorating.

The main difference between the two (as far as housing) is that Philly is almost "exclusively" a rowhouse city whereas Baltimore is just "predominantly" a rowhouse city. A separate, single-family home can be obtained much more easily in Baltimore than in Philly (it's damn near impossible in Philly). In Baltimore, once you go above North Avenue, you can find several neighborhoods (in both the Northwest and the Northeast) that consist of single-family houses of various styles. I don't really know all of the official names of the neighborhoods, but I think it's places like Ashburton, Howard Park, Forest Park, etc. on the western end of the city side and the Echodale, Waltherson, and others, on the Northeastern side.

Philly has its fair share of non-row home neighborhoods as well.Mostly in the NW and NE parts of the city.

Yeah, I know about those areas of Philly--that's why I said Philly is "almost" an exclusively rowhouse city. But Baltimore city simply has MORE areas & neighborhoods that have single family homes--and styles of single family homes that are rare or non-existant anywhere within the city limits of Philly. And some of these areas are well within the city limits of Baltimore (along the Charles street corridor, off of Garrison and Liberty Heights Avenues on the westside, off of Cold Spring Lane, Walther Ave, and Echodale on the eastside, and so forth. Perhaps some of the Baltimore natives can post images of some of those areas...I don't feel like doing all that.

But when I first came to Baltimore to go to school, I didn't know my way around most of the city. When friends would drive me to certain areas, I would assume that we were out in the suburbs somewhere--but would be told that we were actually still in Baltimore city. Now, although each of these areas have single-family homes, some of them are still "the hood," some are working-class & middle-class, and others are more upscale (particularly in the upper-central core of the city above Johns Hopkins' Homewood Campus).

There are also areas in the northeast section of Philly that have single family homes. Like if you didnt know it you would think you were in the suburbs.
