What a shame!

I'm sure there are others who think differently?

Jane, don't let my photos of Baltimore fool you. I am showing the more pleasant side of Baltimore, because I don't venture into the ghettos. The entire western half of the city is a major crime zone on a national level. The city is top 10 in number of murders per year, many locals have fled from the city and the city's population has been facing a rapid decline. It's a sanctuary city which the current Mayor and Governor of the state have allowed illegal persons to enter and live in the city. The city is also going to head in the direction of Detroit if things don't turn around. Besides the streets and roads here are bad compared to Europe something which is really irritating.

.UmarPK, you are irritating....Baltimore may not be a shining gem but it is not a POS....Obviously you have not been around very long, what planet are you from?.......If you don't like it why do you give it any of your time?.....You really need to get better info and stop with your doom and gloom.

Nice pictures. Baltimore reminds me of Rotterdam... Not surprisingly, the two are twinned.

Baltimore City grew by 1200 residents in 2012. Just sayin...

Nice photos despite the fact that you seemingly only post the ones you don't like There are many beautiful, vibrant, and unique areas of Baltimore and you've showcased only a small portion of it. There are so many people in Baltimore that, although cognizant of its problems, truly love the city and work hard to make it a better place to live. Merely mocking and denigrating Baltimore is not helpful and, frankly, quite juvenile.

I hope you feel pretty silly right now telling me to read posts more carefully while at the same time completely misunderstanding/misconstruing what I wrote. I was alluding to the fact that UmarPK kept highlighting what he didn't like about each picture. My comment had NOTHING to do with the subject of the photographs.

Just because you don't like parts of Baltimore doesn't make it a bad city. Nobody said you or anyone has too like everything about it. But you don't know what it has been through by the way you view it with your elitist views/comments. People have been trying for over 60 plus years to improve it, and they have, with no help from you and people like you.

Misunderstanding/misconstruing is exactly what u did,not what I did.U cannot change that.Why should I feel silly just because u do?Umar mentioning his disappointment at how the odd pic has not turned out to his liking is nothing like seemingly only posting the ones he doesnt like.The truth is,u saw someone criticizing and thought u would be brave an jump in on it too.
