Okay, so i moved here to glenmont,.you know the area around the glenmont metro and shopping center..borders wheaton. At first I was just happy to move, because i lived in white oak on stewart lane for a while and the area wasn't so great. Now im really regretting the move..because i thought the area would be safer,..but its 50 times worse than white oak. There is so much crime in this area, and the police are not that much help. I live in winexburg manor neighborhood, and there is a park police in the neighborhood and a police station across the street(god knows we need them)but the police aren't doing a great job keeping the area safe. They hardly keep people from commiting crime. I only lived here for a month and my car got broken into 3 times(the car was locked), my neighbors are crazy with their parties that last until the morning, and even more commotion occurs when the drunk people wander outside. Drugs are being sold almost everywhere, i always here gunshots, the area is just rundown, and i don't like to use the word but its straight up ghetto. The people at white oak were the type of wannabe ghetto, but these people are straight from the hood type ghetto. They destroy anything. Not everybody in glenmont is like this let me assure you, there are many nice and respectful people, but a ton of the opposite. The kids here skip school a lot, and drink and smoke weed and throw parties, blast their music 24-7 its insane. Anyone else has the same experience? Any views on glenmont?

You should probably post your thoughts in the DC or Maryland forum as this really doesn't relate to Baltimore.

The problem my friend, is that you live in WINEXBURG apartments lol. If you live in Winexburg Apts, Georgian Woods, or Peppertree...and of course HEWITT Avenue.... pretty much any of the subsidized apartment housing in the area. All the ghetto kids live there.

I went to Kennedy High School and thats where all the troublemakers lived. There are tons of nice neighborhoods in the area, I live in Strathmore @ Bel Pre near Georgian Forest, and most of the houses off of Layhill are pretty darn nice looking neighborhoods.

It's just that you are in subsidized apartment housing where they cram a bunch of lower income folks into a small dense area, then trouble occurs. That seems to be the recipe for MoCo in general... Washington Grove in Gaithersburg is like this... Castle Boulevard in Burtonsville...

Little dense alcoves of ghetto-ness in an otherwise very well off area.
