Say what you will (and there’s a lot to say) about Baltimore schools and crime, but the simple fact is, not everybody wants a suburban lifestyle. The driving. The sprawl. The sameness. The cookie-cutter houses, the big-box, chain-store everything. The absolute need for a car. Baltimore’s walkability scores are decent (excellent in Federal Hill, Little Italy, and Fells Point), to say nothing of using a bicycle as your main form of transportation. And Lyft, Uber, taxis, Zipcar, and the Circulators take the edge off when you truly need four wheels. If Baltimore City has got anything on the suburbs, it’s the possibility of living without a car, or at least not owning one. You can’t say that about any of the suburbs—at least not with a straight face.
