Most Expensive Baltimore Neighborhoods
Baltimore is a very large coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 622,793 people and 219 constituent neighborhoods, Baltimore is the largest community in Maryland. Much of the housing stock in Baltimore was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Baltimore is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Baltimore is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Baltimore who work in office and administrative support (14.58%), sales jobs (8.64%) and management occupations (7.88%).
Also of interest is that Baltimore has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Baltimore is a popular destination for single career-starters. One thing that you will notice when you are out and about town is that there is a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters out at restaurants, listening to live music, and enjoying other activities. They are a real visible part of the culture of Baltimore. This makes Baltimore a good place to live for young professionals. With so many people in this demographic, Baltimore presents many opportunities for single professionals to enjoy themselves, socialize, and to create lasting relationships.
Baltimore is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
In Baltimore, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.48 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit. In addition, the city is also quite pedestrian-friendly, because many neighborhoods are very dense and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot.
One of the benefits of being a big city like Baltimore is having a public transportation system, but in Baltimore the transit system is the mode of choice for lots of people getting to and from work every day. You will find many people using the bus for their daily commute, even though other transportation options exist. If you ask these commuters, many will tell you that not having to drive in the snarl of big city traffic is one of main reasons for leaving the car at home, or even not owning a car at all. With so many people taking the bus Baltimore benefits from a reduction in air pollution and traffic.
The percentage of people in Baltimore who are college-educated is somewhat higher than the average US community of 21.84%: 27.68% of adults in Baltimore have at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Baltimore in 2010 was $25,062, which is lower middle income relative to Maryland, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $100,248 for a family of four. However, Baltimore contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
