Folks "displaced" by this gentrification are largely white working class and these folks were glad to sell their houses for big bucks as they wanted to move to the counties anyway - been watching this for 20 years in SoBo. Renters are the ones that really lose out when a neighborhood gets hot. To answer IH_77 from earlier - poor blacks are not being gentrified out of Baltimore.
*I disagree!!! Poor blacks are being moved out, not as fast as white neighborhoods, but it is occurring.

City schools are improving slowly but have a long way to go. A lot of parents that stayed/got stuck in the housing crash are the reason. Source - we're in that peer group and know the system pretty well, wife is a teacher.



But cities are cities. London and Paris both sport a wealthy, dynamic core and poor, declining suburbs. Baltimore's first tier suburbs have looked better - a book on topic: Transforming race and Class in Suburbia By Thomas J. Vicino =, a study on Baltimore


Said above, city schools (at least in the gentrifying neighborhoods) are improving.

I didn't know I've repped you that much.

Great pics! The rowhomes are definitely reminiscent of certain parts of Philly. Really nice pics NSC (again).

That first pic (w/The Water Street Tavern) actually looks a lot like Boston, with the tight street/cobblestone?/sharp turn.

Is there a way any one of the mods can make this a sticky thread?
