Baltimore Living

Best Reason to Leave Baltimore


From littering to homicide, our beloved city streets can feel like they are running on the energy of crime and that’s seriously messed up. Sure, it’s not unusual to have parked cars broken into in broad daylight when a forgotten iPod is left on the seat or a pile of parking change is visible—that’s the price of living and working in the city—but it begins to feels personal when a hooptie Honda with over 200,000 miles gets amateur crack-jacked and ends up with a screwed-up ignition. Thanks for trying. Don’t even get us started on the muggings, hit and runs, stolen bikes, burglaries, gun violence, and murder—crime’s in our lives and the lives of every person we know, it’s in our pages and on the television, and it wears us down. Baltimore, please, learn some respect for your neighbor, for property, for life.
