A lot of misinformation and generalization about Baltimore. Baltimore isn't southern by any means. It's just a very weird place. I say that not to be disrespectful. Baltimore's culture is very unique. A lot of people who post on here don't know anything about it except what they read on here. BTW - East coast culture does exist. It's something that most outsiders will never put their finger on. Here's an example. I went to an HBCU in the deep south. The Cali people were in large numbers and they hung together. There was an LA faction and the Bay area faction. People from New Orleans were the majority. They all stuck together. Same for Florida and Texas. Chicagoans were the core of the Midwest contingent. People from NYC, Boston, Philly, DC and Baltimore were small in numbers but stuck together. We formed an East Coast coalition. Why did we gravitate towards each other? I think the way of life on the East Coast is more similar than different. Are they exactly the same? Of course not, but the pace of life, the hustle, the attitudes, lingo, etc.. is very relatable. Same thing with LA and the Bay. It's different but the same if you are looking at it from a far.

I have to call this out on not being exactly true. Unless what part of VA are you talking about? I was at Johns Hopkins Bayview for a visit minding my own business not too long ago. I overheard the nurses talking about how they were teaming up to plan to go down to Alexandria that night and mentioned National Harbor also. Certainly people stick to their sides of the spectrum, but by no means would you classify this as all. The "culture" is completely different in both places however.

Hagerstown? What is there to do in Hagerstown? lol

There is no way the pace of life in Baltimore is the same as most of the Northeast. It may not be Southern but fast paced it is not. In fact Bmore is unique in that it is like the only major NE corridor city that moves quite slow.

Furthermore your n=1 experiment isn't a good way to judge this. Like Chicago people will hang out with only Chicago people and not even the rest of the Midwest because they're snobs and look at other Midwest cities as trashy bumpkin towns. Doesn't mean similarities don't exist.

And furthermore, I explained earlier that Bmore is where the North ends and the South begins and vice versa. I don't believe it is a Southern town in attitude or mentality. But to deny Southern undertones is ignoring history and reality.

Baltimore is southern, but I don't think most large cities in the south are slow paced. Baltimore is just a unique place unto itself.

Ok this is true but even if Baltimore can be called Northern it still isn't fast paced.

What is your definition of fast-paced?
