    Just to beat this dead horse a little more - A neighbor of mine is a retired FBI field agent. He walks with a bad limp and looks to be a typical pencil pusher. He was walking through the inner harbor with his wife and another older couple when 3 young Baltimorons thought he would be an easy pickpocketing target. The first one grabbed his wallet and got no further as my neighbor grabbed his shoulder and dropped him like a bag of bricks with some secret FBI pressure point move. The second one was a little quicker and grabbed his FBI issued cell phone and took off. When my neighbor started yelling a couple of observers grabbed the cell thief and held him until police arrived. The best part is that the kid who grabbed his wallet took a swing at him so he was charged and convicted of assaulting a federal officer on top of the theft of federal property. The cell phone thief only got theft of federal property. The third kid took off and never attempted to steal anything, so be aware as he is probably looking for Steelers fans right now. True story.

    I have lived within 25 miles of Baltimore City my entire life. I even went to college locally. So, I can verify . .

    Downtown Baltimore is trash (most of it is). A polished turd. Even the polish is cheap. Go one block away and it goes straight downhill real fast. Somebody made the comment that Inner Harbor area was a "strip mall" on the water is absolutely correct. The Aquarium and Science Center are ridiculously and laughably overpriced. Don't even get me started on that dump yard called the zoo. There are roving bands of youths beating tourists and law abiding locals senseless, even to death - this is denied by a city council that I do believe every single one of them has been or is being investigated by authorities for one way or another. The last mayor was removed for stealing donations for charities. They even screwed the Indy Race that came through town. Of course she denied everything. The city is money pit, everyone knows what the problems are but nobody has the political fortitude to fix it. The city sucks up a disproportionate large amount of the entire state budget. Conditions never, and will not, improve.Traffic sucks, and it costs you $3 to go one way through the tunnel into the city. There are 8 tunnels. That price is rising to get this - $6 dollars in the next 2 years.

    Now, I took my yearly pilgrimage to Pittsburgh. Guess what - I was not charged any money to go through the tunnel to get downtown! Imagine that! The city was clean. And despite the city being clean, traffic was at a minimum despite a Pirates game just ending. The downtown layout makes sense, traffic flows, there is a nice waterfront area, and I feel safe! I had my family with me, and no worries. In Baltimore, we just want to get to our car and out of town ASAP. And, I did not see any panhandlers! Wow! The Pitt Zoo, which was half the price of the Baltimore Aquarium, includes admission to the aquarium! Imagine that! The Zoo is a million times better that glorified pet store called the Baltimore Zoo, the aquariums are comparable. I could go on and on . . .

    Any Baltimorean who degrades Pittsburgh is either delusional or has never been there. Pittsburgh has been recognized as one of the best cities to live in the US for years. It is an international business, culture, sports, and arts
    center. It is clean, well laid out, modern, and family friendly. There is no denying any of that. Conversely, Baltimore is a gang ridden, pitbull breeding ground, dirty, mismanaged, holier than thou wasteland.

    Baltimore does have two things Pittsburgh does not have - world renown medical care. Johns Hopkins University/Hospital and University of Maryland Shock Trauma (who recently saved my dad's life after he fell off a roof). I will give Baltimore that.

    Before any Baltimore fans get on my case, I am speaking of Baltimore, not the Ravens. I respect the Ravens as a football team, and they are a key element of the local culture. As are the Orioles, and it is a shame, as the Orioles deserve better. The stadium is the best feature of the downtown area. My observations are based on experience, gained over 40 years, of living in Baltimore and visiting Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has drastically changed over the last 20 years, in a much better way than Baltimore. If anyone on this forum ever visits, shoot me a message and I can direct you to some places to visit and some to stay away from. Bring money for the tunnels!
    I like big hits and I cannot lie

    I can believe it, every time I go to the inner harbor, which isn't often there's always ignorant Ratbird fans there talking trash to people with rival team gear on. Even the families with kids or older couples, they'll be a douchebag to anyone.

    I have family that moved near Baltimore. They tell me that the locals are the most ignorant douche bags they have ever seen.

    Where
    Baltimore should really be in Arkansas. Near the Texas state line. Or, better yet in Mexico or Iran.

    And their fans.
