No, I'm afraid not. But SF is MEDITERRANEAN in influence, so perhaps it's "southern European"...
Baltimore could be almost anything, but it's part of the NE Corridor, and it has a strong physical resemblance to Philadelphia.

The first photo is of Cumberland, Maryland, over 100 miles away - see the mountains?

And yes, Baltimore is not southern

Parts of Maryland are southern, but definently not Baltimore

I know that, Im not saying that it is Southwestern cause I dont think it is in any way, but Maryland is the South and Baltimore is part of the South even though its up North and so is San Fran. Could the Southwest extend that far up North and still be called SOUTHwest.


I was going to compare LA but San Fran was up North so I used that.

Maybe Baltmore isnt southern, maybe it just has a colonial history.

Neither city is Southern or Southwestern. Really SF Southwestern? Are u kidding me? Baltimore may have a few clues here and there if you lookout for them, but is overtly Northern (waaay more Philly than Richmond).

btw those 1st and 3rd photos of "Baltimore"...hmm

I'd say Baltimore is more Southern than SF is Southwestern.

The 3rd photo looks a lot like Hampden or even Woodberry. The third one, like i said is Cumberland, but the third one could most definitely be Baltimore
