Some nice pics of the houses in Baltimore. I'm confused if those are mostly borderline Baltimore county because I'm so used to seeing boarded up housing, hard to believe "suburban" type housing exist in Baltimore (city). I would assume some of these houses are actually cheaper than PG County homes.

Thank you a lot of people don't know this type of housing exist in the city not just you . Only 3 technically 4 out of the 16 neighborhoods-Dickeyville, Cedarcroft, and Lake Walker- with an exception to Mt. Washington because its so huge are the only neighborhoods featured that touch the Baltimore city border line. However, all neighborhoods featured are within the city of Baltimore. Maybe some are cheaper but some of those homes go from $500,000 to the $1,000,000 range.

Rich White People Self-Segregate More in Philly ’Burbs Than Most Anywhere Else

Researchers from the University of Minnesota mapped where wealthy white people cluster, as well as where poor people of color are concentrated, in 15 of the country’s biggest metropolitan areas.
They found that the Philadelphia region has 70 “racially concentrated areas of affluence,” the second-highest amount out of the 15 locations that were studied. Boston was No. 1, with 77 areas of concentrated affluence.
All of the areas of concentrated affluence are situated in Philly's suburbs. Conversely, the Philly metro has 86 "racially concentrated areas of poverty," nearly all of which are located in the city.

In the working paper, the researchers defined "racially concentrated areas of affluence" as places where at least 90 percent of residents are white and the median income is four times the federal poverty level or more. "Racially concentrated areas of poverty" are those where more than 40 percent of the population lives below the poverty line and more than half of residents are non-white.
Couldconcentrated wealthmake it more difficult for regions to address major problems, such as poverty and unemployment? Ed Goetz, a co-author of the paper, said segregation "can erode a sense of common destiny, and it can erode a sense of empathy for others."

Goetz also told CityLab that government policy has often "focused on the concentration of poverty," which has "shielded the other end of the spectrum from scrutiny — to the point where we think segregation of whites is normal."

^^^^Anyways remember my map I made turns out my theory was not far off at all
Baltimore City 2014 Housing Market Typology Map-everything from light yellow up is considered good neighborhoods (A,B,C,D) and there are more of light yellow, light blue, blue, and purple than the reds or darker yellows (E,F,G,H)
Here's a map I made of Baltimore most blighted neighborhoods (red), gentrified or gentrifying neighborhoods (yellow), Gentrified and wealthy neighborhoods(green), Wealthy middle to upper class neighborhoods(blue)

Hmm well this will help me better. Anything yellow, blue, green and purple has a range of being good to average then the brows and reds are not good? I notice North Baltimore has a blue overtone but has light colors underneath it.

That's what i said and I list the letters to the colors of the map key. Everything from light yellow up is considered good neighborhoods (A,B,C,D) and there are more of light yellow, light blue, blue, and purple than the reds or darker yellows-orange (E,F,G,H). I don't know if you or me are colorblind but there are no browns in that map.
