Look at Howard County, better public schools (more blue ribbon schools), nice houses though more expensive and close to DC and Baltimore. Do your research on both Howard and PG, see what you find.

PG is not bad, the public schools are problematic, a lot of kids are in catholic schools, but you can find a nice house for under 400K and sometimes under 300K. Most of the blacks in PG work for govt contractors, govt employees or school system. There is a more 'southern' feel to PG county, but it is the south. Brandywine, upper Marlboro, bowie, Accokeek, fort Washington, laurel, greenbelt, Adelphi, Clinton, temple hills are all nice areas, sure there are more.

The social scene is what you like. There are a lot of nice restaurants and clubs in both cities, both cities have harbors. PG being closer to DC you will access to a lot more of everything.

Whenever I go into bmore to visit my two rowhouse investment homes, I am strapped. Very dangerous area with dudes walking around the block 5 or 6 deep with scowls on their faces at all times of the day. And the people in the neighborhood know I am the italian looking guy who is strapped. So if they want to have to shoot out we can shoot it out.

PG County is tame in comparison. I worked at a GOVT office in suitland and visit the little hoody restaurants daily and was never threatened or mugged.

I wonder why he's still here though I didn't know high crime rates were a badge of honor. But I guess that's how his mind really works I suppose. Whatever boy.

Baltimore sucks. It has no culture and a ****ty personality. Everyone is nice to your face but will manipulate you for a buck. I have been in Baltimore for 5 years and it's easily been the worst 5 of my life. I was born and raised in Brooklyn NY when crack was taking over. Baltimore is like being in the 70's the only difference is that nobody wants to change the city for the better. If you even read a book people look at you like you're some pretentious prick. PG has culture, personality and even a public transportation system! PG is more of a cultured city than Baltimore will ever be. I apologize to the good people that Baltimore has but I have never had a good experience. I have lived in East Balto (1400 Blk Montford), Brooklyn (Maude/6th), Harlem Park (700 Gilmor), Edmonston Village (Melbourne Rd) and even Locust Point on Cooksie Street!! I think it's safe to say I have exhausted my options here and have a valid opinion towards the downward spiral of hate that is Bmore. Sorry bmorefella, you seem smart and an overall good person from your posts that sets a good example for our youth. My intention was not to offend you.

2. Demographicall Bmore city is 64% black with 640,000ppl PG is 62% black with 860,000. I believe pg has as much AA as Bmore city and county together..Theres alot of AA in Bmore but I dont know about exclusive middle upper class neighborhoods except for Randallstown or Woodlawn. Pg has the working class, middle-class, upper-middle, and upper-upper class all within majority black neighborhoods and is the most wealthy county with an AA majority so yea....

3. Crime in Bmore is about the drug trade and gangs. If you dont do either of the two then rarely will you be a victim and is majority in the obviously run down parts of the city not the county. Crime in pg is about neighborhood beef and robbery. The rule of thumb is that its majority inside the beltway of 495 closer to DC. All in all you should be fine if you arent in the streets

4. Schools.. know nothing of Bmore schools. Pg schools house kids from all demographic so its all social classes mixing which presents its problems. However its easy to succeed as anywhere else. When compared to other schools I see no inferiority just more issues. Whatever pg schools are lacking theres an abundance in other experiences which kids from other schools dont have. I went to school in Baltimore and everyone knew who the "pg" kids were from the slang to the style of dress.
5. Baltimore is far more affordable. $600 will get a something not too shabby in Bmore county whereas $600 wont even get you a studio apt in the most murderous apartment complex in PG county. But you have to pay to play in PG


There is def a difference in mindsets in the 2 places

I respect comments from New Yorkers more than I hold comments from anyone else.

My grandfather was from Brooklyn, NY and moved to Baltimore in 1963. The only reason he moved to Baltimore, was that my grandmother relocated here from Philly after 1947. He rarely had nice things to say about Baltimore.

"It has no culture and a ****ty personality.."

*Baltimore has culture, but it's centered around Old Bay Seasoning, high grade heroin and black ignorance and white racism.
