I'm a student moving to Baltimore at the end of the month, and I'm trying to decide among these three neighborhoods(/suburb) as to where I should live. Does anybody have any general advice/information/thoughts? What about things like safety, quality of life, and social scene?

Thanks for your help!

If you're young and gay, hip, and love the theatre and restaurants -- Mt. Vernon. If you're older, maybe thinking of having kids, settled, and want a fun and architecturally diverse neighborhood with fun shops and a good supermarket -- Mt. Washington. I can't say anything either way about Towson, as it's in the 'burbs and I don't know much about it.

Towson has a lot of students from Towson University in the area. It's got a pretty decent "main street" area on York Road for shopping, etc, and Towson Towne Mall is right there on York also.

Thumbs up Mount Vernon!!

I am straight and married (interracial relationship) and have lived in Mt. Vernon for 3 years. Mt. Vernon is the "cultural district" of Baltimore. It is known as a gay neighborhood but I must tell you as a resident, it is equally straight! Lots of arts (museums, theater) shopping, eating, and smacked dab in the heart of Baltimore, you are close to everything!

I highly recommend it!
