huh? DC's metropolitan area is much larger than Baltimore. People from Montgomery and PG Counties consider themselves Washingtonians before Marylanders.

Of course Washington's metropolitan area is much larger (twice as large really) but it's suburbs in Maryland have a population of 2.4 million compared to the entire Baltimore area being 2.7 million all within Maryland. So slightly smaller.

There is the District of Columbia, West Virginia, and Northern Virginia but that's all outside of Maryland proper.

But where does a large percentage of the population in the Baltimore MSA work - especially the higher income earners? Where does much of this wealth actually come from? That is the bottom line and I don't have very good stats on that. All you have to do is look at where the wealth is concentrated in Maryland and it is obviously to the southwest of Baltimore.

I know quite a lot of people who have relocated from Montgomery County to Howard County but still kept their jobs in the DC area. I know a few people who live in Baltimore and work in DC, Nova, etc.

I think Annapolis is more accessible to DC than Baltimore. If im in Largo it will take 17 minutes to get to the water in Annapolis not downtown but the water, and the same amount to get to downtown DC.

Baltimore is closer to DC than it is to Baltimore. Annapolis is easily accessible to both city. Interstate 97 is a straight shot from Annapolis to Baltimore. Interstate 50 is a straight shot from Annapolis to DC. Not to mention Baltimore has more routes to and from Annapolis than DC does. DC only has 50/301.

Your making no sense. Of course people from PG and Montgomery would feel associated with DC. Its in DC's MSA. That's like saying people from Baltimore County and Howard would consider themselves Baltimoreans before Marylanders. DC MSA excluding Virginia since we are talking about Maryland is slightly smaller than Baltimore's MSA since Baltimore covers more county's in Maryland including the Eastern Shore. Baltimore's MSA also has a larger population (2.7 million) and wealth. Howard is the third wealthiest county in the U.S.

Baltimore influences parts of PG culturally. Baltimore Blue crabs for instance has a major influence in PG. Locals in PG eat blue crabs traditionally. There also Ravens fans in PG. But DC of course influences PG more than Bmore. But do not doubt that Baltimore has some influence on PG.
