jake_lex: You gotta think there was a writers' meeting for The Wire where the idea of having an apartment complex get fire-bombed was proposed, and David Simon listened to it and said "Nah, we shouldn't shy away from portraying how violent and chaotic Baltimore can be, but we need to be realistic. They don't fire bomb each other there."
bluefoxicy: Heh I'm buying a house in Park Heights near Pimlico.
super_grass: American cities are miniature 3rd-world countries nowadays anyways, so calling it one is pretty fitting./ It's a city, I know.
Tat'dGreaser: bluefoxicy: Heh I'm buying a house in Park Heights near Pimlico.Enjoy never having possessions for more than a week.
bluefoxicy: the place I live in has 2.5 times as much crime, 3 times as much murdering, a hell of a lot more armed robbery and burglary, and I keep all my expensive and desirable possessions in a garage outside with a $15 master lock on it and show them off to people passing by.I've never had a problem.
Tat'dGreaser: I don't know why you enjoy living in sh*t holes so much
xanadian: That town isn't nicknamed "Bodymore, Murderland" for nothing...
Crewmannumber6: Is this the Dundalk neighborhood I was told to stay way from?
syberpud: The article says Northeast Baltimore, Dundalk is more Southeast. You should stay away from Dundalk on general principle though.

mongbiohazard: I've been working in Baltimore for about 2 months now. There's like a 2 block buffer zone around the harbor where it can be nice, and it all turns to hell a block or so later. The people are even ruder than they are in DC and almost everyone is incredibly lazy.To give an idea how lazy... I needed to wait for a cable appointment one day and when the Comcast dude showed up (an hour late) it turns out he was being lent to Baltimore Comcast from DETROIT Comcast. When I asked why they shipped him all the way out here just to install cable he replied pretty much verbatim, "Cause they is LAZY out here. I 'ain't never seen nothing like it."
