10 of Baltimore's Most Dangerous Neighborhoods.Jul 03, 2023
What's going on? Everyone, welcome back to the world according to Briggs and a new look at Baltimore or Bmore, whatever you want to call it. Baltimore is home to too much history to explain in a 10-minute video, but it is home to Fort Mchenry, the birthplace. of the united states national anthem the banner with stars yes it happened here many people think that the banner with stars comes from a battle during the revolutionary war it is incorrect it came from the war of 1812. in 1999 a survey was done on the united states states and where things are 75 percent of american high school students thought
baltimorewas right next to new york city, it's not, it's just north of washington dc, on the chesapeake bay,
baltimoreis a of the
dangerouscities in the United States, but they are on the verge of a technological boom, so many people will be moving to Baltimore in the next few years and that is what this video is for and that is why we will use the actual technical name of the neighborhood so that can find look it up on google map or anywhere locals have all kinds of names for
neighborhoodsin every major city and sometimes they have several for the same neighborhood, we won't go into all that but if you really want to know what many of these
neighborhoodsare. called just look at the comments section of this video the locals are going to fill it up we don't call it that we call it this happens every time okay let's take a look number 10 greater rosemont greater rosemont or just rosemont is northwest of downtown baltimore with the Gwen Falls Park on its western border, there are al
most19,000 people living in this neighborhood and everyone has a 1 in 115 chance of becoming a victim of crime.
I was reading reviews about the area and one person actually said this is one of the safest neighborhoods in baltimore that was one person there were about 75 reviews that said it was extremely
dangerousa response to the person who said it was safe asked if They had abandoned their basement in 30 years. 90 of the houses here have bars on the windows and the other 10 are boarded up houses. You look at the architecture of this neighborhood and it seems like at one time it was just a beautiful place to live and obviously it's not anymore, there are a lot of people there who are just normal. regular people like any neighborhood, but you always have those 10 that are just doing stupid things that bring down a neighborhood like this.
The violent crime rate in Rosemont is 562 percent higher than the national average. That's just the violent crime rate. There are 6.88 violent crimes occurring for every 100,000 residents here, compared to the national average, which is 1.04, number nine. Moral Park is southwest of downtown Baltimore. They have about 6,000 residents living in this neighborhood and I was reading a review that said that when they went there there were a lot of homeless people that would live there in the different vacant lots because the train tracks weren't too far away, they're actually on the southern edge of this neighborhood. Hobos always love the name.
The hobos were originally part of an area in Baltimore. Known as Georgia Plantation they later changed the name to Mount Clare Moral Park is a good place to go if you don't feel like your body has enough holes you would like to gather a couple more the violent crime rate here is 665 percent higher than the national average, there are 7.96 violent crimes per 100,000 residents here, as I said before, that compares to the national average of 1.04, so you basically have a 1 in 11 chance of suffering any harm to your body unintentionally here, the unemployment rate in Morrow Park is 85 higher than the national average.
Typically, when you have a high unemployment rate or severe poverty, you have a lot of violent crime and property crime, actually, although there is a lot of poverty and people don't have jobs. You'd think that would lead to more property crime, but violent crime is what always breaks out in an area like that. I guess when it comes to property crimes, no one in the neighborhood has anything worth stealing. Number Eight Brooklyn Bay Curtis Baltimore Brooklyn Bay Curtis are actually two different neighborhoods, but they're right next to each other and people generally group this area together because it's on some kind of weird peninsula with the Fairfield industrial area just east of it. they.
Have you ever heard the phrase the perfect storm? the area has the perfect storm for crime, you have an industrial area, a large train yard, you have housing projects, all the things that usually tell you there will be some crime and Brooklyn Curtis bay does not disappoint, they have some crime, They are violent. The crime rate is 674 percent higher than the national average. You have a 1 in 11 chance of being a victim of a crime. There are only about 13,000 people living in this area here. If you look for it on the map, it's just south of downtown. baltimore across the water there like so many other neighborhoods in baltimore every block has some boarded up houses and some that look like they should be boarded up when it comes to violent crime there are 8.04 per 100,000 residents again compared to the national level average of 1.04 number seven, oliver, this is a little strange because some maps actually show that oliver and green mount east are on top of each other, there is a green mount cemetery right there, but it is strange, the only person I know from Baltimore I contacted her on Facebook and she said she heard about Monte Verde, but she always knew that area like Oliver.
Either way, this is a neighborhood that has a pretty high violent crime rate right now, but they're also in the midst of a revitalization of sorts. They actually have a lot of new construction in this neighborhood, so I think in future episodes, if we do this in a couple of years, they might not be listed, but right now it's pretty dangerous if you look for it on a map it's northeast of downtown baltimore a little north of the johns hopkins campus side note if you want to get the locals excited call it john hopkins oh they love that the violent crime rate in oliver is 678 percent higher than average national and you have a one in 11 chance of becoming a crime victim here when it comes to violent crime there are 8.09 per 100,000 residents number six Highlandtown Highland Town is just east of downtown Baltimore and just west from Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
The area is a little strange, it doesn't look terrible when you know, look at the streets and the different houses, they don't have many boarded up places, I mean they have some, not many, but their violent crime rates are pretty high. It's actually 715 percent higher than the national average; There are about 12,000 people who live in this neighborhood and they all have a 1 in 11 chance of becoming a victim of crime here, but their violent crime rate is 8.47 per 100,000 residents here, number five . berea, if you're from the west coast it's called brea, but here it's called berea, they have a population of just under six thousand residents and they have a lot of violent crime along with those six thousand residents, the violent crime rate in berea. is 718 percent higher than the national average and again, this is a place where you have a 1 in 11 chance of becoming a victim of a crime, let it be any crime, not a violent crime.
The area is east of Oliver, which we just talked about, and they have a good-sized cemetery in the neighborhood, so it's good because people go there a lot. One thing I like about the Bria area is that you can get a house here, on average it costs around 120,000 for a three bedroom. What I don't like is that there are 8.5 violent crimes. per 100,000 residents again, that compares to the national average of 1.04 number four cherry hill cherry hill sounds delicious sounds like a nice place to be or sounds like something you get after a nice dinner at a restaurant, but not Cherry Hill is not a place you want to go because its violent crime rate is 729 percent higher than the national average.
Nearly 8,000 people who live here have a 1 in 12 chance of becoming victims of any crime. Interestingly, their property crimes are not as high here as some. Of the other neighborhoods on this list, it's a little strange. Cherry Hill is east of downtown Baltimore, just across the water, not far from the Brooklyn Curtis Bay area, they have an industrial area on the northwest side of this neighborhood and a lot of public housing. Those are two of the things that always generate a lot of crime. Now keep in mind that not all people in public housing are total criminals.
Don't get that illusion. I know a lot of people try to push for it to always be that way. five or ten percent who are doing all the garbage that makes life miserable for these people who live here. It's a shame. I had a friend who grew up in public housing in Southern California and he said his dad had a great idea for everyone in the neighborhood. he knows who the troublemakers are, who the criminals are, whatever he said, everyone should be able to kick people out of the community and then the police come to pick him up, obviously, you can't do that, that violates a lot of rights, but when everyone The neighborhood knows who is causing all the problems in the neighborhood for a public housing area.
I think that should be legal, but in Cherry Hill there are 8.62 violent crimes per 100,000 residents. Number 3 in Madison East End Madison East End has around 5,000 residents living here. They have the potential to have much more, but they have a lot of boarded up houses. Madison East End is east of downtown Baltimore and south of Brea. This neighborhood has a lot of good people, but it also has a lot of street pharmacists soliciting your trade, if you go here you have a 1 in 11 chance of becoming a victim of crime. Its violent crime rate is 8.72 per 100,000 residents. Number two Franklin Square Union Square.
This area is more commonly known to locals or anyone as West Baltimore. Don't let that confuse you, there is a place on Google Maps called West Baltimore, but that is not West Baltimore. Most people know we're talking about Franklin Square, Union Square, this area has about 50,000 residents and they have a crime rate. that's about 751 percent above the national average. If you live in this area, you have a 1 in 10 chance of being a victim of crime. There are many other neighborhoods in Baltimore that have a worse reputation than places like Franklin Square and Union Square. but the statistics do not align with the reputation.
One way I like to measure how bad a neighborhood is is how many houses have bars on their windows and how many houses per block have boarded up houses. This place has plenty of both. 8.76 violent crimes per 100,000 residents in the Franklin and Union Square area. Please note that the national average is 1.04 per 100,000 residents. Alright, before we get to number one, don't forget that we have another channel called on this day. a link below, well, to number one and number one Hopkins Middle East, this area is like the poster child for urban decay, to the point that they filmed the TV show Homicide, life on the streets and HBO is the cable that they did not stop.
With only one TV series called Homicide, this neighborhood is so perfect for this type of genre that they actually filmed a movie called Homicide in this area in 1991. If there is any advantage to living in this neighborhood, you are very close to Johns Hopkins, so I want to say. If you get shot or something, you can go there, you can almost walk there depending, obviously, on your blood loss. At this point, at one point there were about 12,000 people living in this neighborhood, right now there are a little over 7,500 violent people. crime rate is 858 percent higher than the national average, you have a one in nine chance of becoming a victim of crime, while in this area there are 9.96 violent crimes per 100,000 residents in Hopkins, Middle East.
Alright, that's today's video, I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you got some information like I said, although the names may be different from the locals, sorry but I just want you to be able to find this on the map if you are looking for it and thinking about moving that area there are also others neighborhoods that might have a worse reputation than those on this list. We have to be guided by numbers, not reputation. Okay, everyone have a great day, be kind to each other.
