My best friend and I are looking to move to Maryland soon and we are looking for something like this:
Inexpensive
Low crime rates
Jobs
Good public transportation system like NJ Transit and PATH
An area where I don't have to dodge bullets like Newark, NJ

Please, if you have any ideas, that would be great!!

JM that is simply not true!
There are many nice areas. No, I would not live near certain areas downtown Baltimore other than that you wont have to dodge any bullets!!!!!!
Are you looking to buy a house or will you rent?
What kind of jobs are you looking for? The job market isn't exacly hot right now keep that in mind. There are many areas that are nice and have public transportation. http://www.mtamaryland.com/

Hi

Where are you going to work / what part of Maryland hires people with your skills?
What is your budget for a place (i.e. what is inexpensive to you)?
Are schools an issue?
Do you 'require' mass transit or just 'like' mass transit?

You might be correct but if you take literally what the op is asking there is no such place in Maryland. No doubt there would have to be a compromise.

"inexpensive
Low crime rates
Jobs
Good public transportation system like NJ Transit and PATH
An area where I don't have to dodge bullets like Newark, NJ"

The problem is finding a town that has low crime rates but is INexpensive. New Jersey is very expensive.

Of course, there are a lot of nice towns.

If you find a place that is reasonably safe but inexpensive, there is no public transportation.

There are no jobs in NJ, at least ones that pay a living salary. Of course, that's true of the whole country. I know of people who have applied for hundreds of jobs in Jersey, and can't even get an interview. I really hope the economy turns around soon.

Such a place does not exist in fair Maryland (or everyone would live there ). Now maybe if you subtracted the "inexpensive" requirement I could help you out...

Also, what are you looking to get (an apartment) and would you prefer the Baltimore area or DC Area. Both have excellent transportation options (light rail, Metro, MARC commuter rail etc.) but different characters and job markets. Anyway here's a starting point: Silver Spring (borders DC, good Metro access, low crime, plenty of jobs nearby, and not too expensive).

Pikesville. Low crime (as I mentioned elswhere, I've lived here for 8 years and never had to lock my cars in the driveway). Great schools, easy to walk everyhwere. Metro stations to ride to downtown Baltimore if needed. Jobs. Can be quite inexpensive to buy here, too.

Most people ignore it due to not being as "sexy" a destination as a DC suburb or the Inner Harbor.
