Most murders that occur in the Baltimore area are in the city itself.

However then it comes to D.C., the majority of the murders are in the suburbs.
Prince George's county, MD has more murders so far this year, add to the other murders in other counties and you will see that murders and crime as well are more spread out in the DC area.

All one has to do it take the crime rate of each and every jurisdiction in each four of these metros, combine them separately and you will see that DC comes out on top.
Does that mean the DC metro as a whole is dangerous? No because the DC metro covers a lot of land and contains 5.4 million people.

Then DC would be next, followed by philly and baltimore. Philly and Balimore have the calmer weather than the other 2, usually.
they weather is pretty similar in all four cities, if a hurricane struck the east coast, NYC and Baltimore would have it worse.

Lol Baltimore can be bareable depending on where you go I guess. I dont know much about the entire city itself besides what I saw on the wire and my experiences from visiting. I go down there sometimes to see a few friends, they stay close to baltimore's downtown area..so its not as bad. There are plenty of abandoned row houses though.

The biggest thing in the city is their harbor, which I hear is nice. As many times as ive been to baltimore Ive actually never been to the harbor. My friends often take me out of baltimore when they wanna show me a good time.
