Lol.

Have you been to Wilmington? The neighborhoods are like a split image of Baltimore City. There's probably no city in America that comes closer by comparison.

--Similar orientation/urbanization patterns
--Similar social/political/economic dynamics
--Similar developmental evolution
St. Louis was my first thought before I even went into this thread. And for some of the same reasons.

I've been to Wilmington several times. It looks like Philly. The demographics is far more similar to Philly, accents are that of Philly. The rowhouses look like Philly rowhouses.

I just don't see the Baltimore correlation

I think if Richmond and Norfolk had a love child and fed it steroids til it went Hulk mode, you might get something like Baltimore.

It’s not St Louis the people are different, the culture is different and the geography is different. I would go with Philly, Wilmington and then Richmond.

I would have to say Philadelphia based on what I have seen on CharlieBo313’s worst ghetto hoods of __________ youtube channel, narrow streets and row houses.
