Hyattsville isn't just the Route 1 corridor. It also includes West Hyattsville/ Langley Park.

And when the OP drove through Fairfax County, I doubt that he/she went into the completely-Hispanic 1940's apartments of CULMORE on Route 7, the Springfield Mall shopping center, or the mostly-minority apartment communities strung along Route 1 (Richmond Highway).

Hyattsville doesn't just include the Route 1 corridor. The Hyattsville postal designation also includes west to the MoCo line (all of Langley Park) and also to the southeast all the way to Central Avenue, as proven by the Orange area on this Map

And I doubt that the OP visited such out-of-the-way places as CULMORE (completely-Hispanic 1940s apartments in Fairfax County, near Baileys Crossroads) or the several, mostly-minority apartment projectss along Route 1 (Richmond Highway).

This guy is from New Jersey. So many Jersey posers in Maryland.

All kidding aside it's just laziness. People do this nonsense all over the place.

I find it amusing how many posters on this thread are denigrating the OP or pointing out the exceptions instead of just answering the question. Sure, parts of Prince George's County are very nice. Sure, parts of Fairfax County aren't very nice. But the OP's point remains: large swaths of P.G. aren't very nice, while large swaths of Fairfax (and other counties in suburban DC) are.


As for an answer to the question, I would say it's demographics. Here are the relevant statistics:


Prince George's population
White: 13.0%

Asian: 4.2%

Black: 62.0%

Hispanic: 17.8%



Fairfax population
White: 51.2%
Asian: 19.0%

Black: 9.5%

Hispanic: 16.1%


Anyone not blinded by PC will see these numbers and understand why those two counties are so different, even though they're in the same metropolitan area.

BINGO! Nice post! Yea, the left PC loonies like to talk the all the idiotic PC stuff , rant and rage etc ... but when it comes down to it ,they just go back and live life in their upper middle class/upper class all white Maryland hoods where they wouldn't dare have section 8 housing, a light rail going threw it, or metro buses from the hood, but they would want it for everybody else.

Ok but the OP never asked anything about those numbers and if you bother reading his post anyone can tell the poster is a troll.

The OP asked why Prince George's County is so bad, and commented on it appearing "ghetto." He contrasted it with other, more pleasant counties in the Washington metropolitan area. My response is an explanation for why PG appears to be so ghetto.


As for whether or not the OP is a troll, I'll leave that for the moderators to decide.

Yeah, I wondered about that. An outsider visiting the area so briefly coming up with the very firm opinion that everywhere outside PG is awesome, and everything inside the county is crap is pretty unlikely. Not impossible (maybe came in with preconceived notions?) but not probable.
