Just the Port Covington project (led by Under Armour's Kevin Plank) is projected at over $4 bn in private investment money, and while that project is huge it's far from the only thing going on.

    Definitely some really nice areas in the city and also some war zones. Tons of cool old buildings waiting for redevelopment and also a lot in the redevelopment process now. I think there's some stellar real estate opportunities where you could get in really cheap but you might have to wait 10 years.

    Biggest problem right now is the tax rate is high, and the police have been at about half-speed since the whole Freddie Gray thing. New police commissoner may help and there's a lot of tax incentives in the pipeline from the state, so who knows but it's far from all grim there.
    Pretty accurate. I would say that the po-po is running at about 33% efficiency. I have a family friend who is a cop/detective.

    Baltimore's cool. Trump's a retard.

    I wouldn't call them burnt out buildings...just abandoned. Fulton Avenue is a warzone BUT the lights are mostly timed !

    I like Baltimore. Each time I'm there I wonder why people talk so much shit. Then again, I also like Cleveland and other rust belt cities, so maybe Baltimore fits in with those locales more than DC?
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    Best way to judge any city is by the quality of the strip joints. Clearly. Thank the gods we have timberidge to guide us. No need to visit Baltimore. The strippers are skanky apparently.

    Now I wonder what the dons issue was. Seems right up his alley.

    He has no real estate holdings there. Too bad, the Tide Point area would have been a good investment ten years ago. But, he went with the rapidly growing golf course biz. Smart guy. Winner.

    (crab cakes are) "...a staple of Mid-Atlantic cuisine, especially in Delaware since the blue crab is common in local tidal waters."

    Especially in Delaware?

    How 'bout them O's (pronounced "Eaus")! I lived in Balmer for a few years while going to grad school; as the northeast goes, it's pretty nice. Yeah, the old 99&99 during summer is hard to take though. Laid back place, as cities go, and you only need to get a little outside the beltway for some okay trailrunning or mountainbiking, and not too much farther than that for better trails. A short bit of class 3 whitewater just to the north, too.

    And I tele-skied at Wisp (to the standard "are those cross-country skis??" reaction).

    And just what part of that question was a reading comprehension fail? The statutes, according to my skimming the other article posted, did go further than I thought they would in forbidding whites to transact on real estate in black neighborhoods, but whites were always allowed to own real estate in black neighborhoods, just not move into them. Which is a huge distinction.

    About those strippers...

    - Old skool was downtown up/down The Block.
    - Skanky? Oh hell yes. Crackskank.
    Mindblowing on acid lemme tell ya, then a coupla bumps to drive out to Jax/Phoenix area.
    We'd go partying then finish the action on the block. Stripper told my buddy's fiance' she was gonna get her ass kicked if she didn't get out cuz' she was prettier than all the working gals. All of the scuds were checking her out and not tipping...

    We left laughing our guts out.
