I think this goes both ways. People in the city love to trash talk suburbanites.

Two years later, Baltimore is currently building more than possibly all of it's suburbs combined.

Arts Scape is currently going on as well, so there will be hundreds of thousands of people in the city this weekend as well.... This event will last longer than the riots did.
You know the drill - bad news sells, good news gets ignored (it's boring).

I went to Baltimore to see the Fourth of July fireworks after having a meal at Rusty Scupper. Everyone should have a meal at Rusty Scupper. :-)

St. Louis burbs despise their city and the immediate surrounding areas.
