Speaking of Bowie....I was looking at Greenbelt/Beltsville/College Park...and saw that there isn't a Barnes and Noble or Borders anywhere in that area...closest place is actually BOWIE!

Which made me think...is that where Greenbelt/Beltsville people go generally...for bookstore and other types of interests? Or does Bowie mostly just attract the people that live further out?

Plus, I didn't recall the OP providing her race. And I don't think Bowie is overwhelmingly white anymore. But I am sure someone will post some stats to prove or disprove this.

All that being said, I have found Bowie to be an overall really safe, really nice place. I've heard mixed things about Bowie High School, but the good news has outweighed the not-so-good.
Bowie is predominantly a black rich city. It's the richest in pg county. It's plenty of whites there but like I said before it's predominantly a black city

Depends on where in Bowie, the old north Bowie has one of the larger working middle class white populations left in the DMV. And to OP 95% of Bowie is completely safe, only iffy areas are some of the older run down town homes just south of Allen Pond. Even those areas aren't really that bad just a little run down and some crime.

Not according to BET's latest rankings.

I agree. But Bowie is not mentioned in any of them. That's the point as we driving at. As a matter of fact, I've never heard Bowie mentioned in any of these lists besides being an overall nice place to live for all races.
