I haven't lived here long, but it is nicer than Dundalk and the beginning of Essex. Its farther away from the city, so there's less drugs obviously being done and cops. There's access to the Amtrak over at Martin State Airport, and the local 62 bus takes you right to Eastpoint Mall which has 3 other buses.

Middle River is a very diverse and close place. Schools are all connected and everyone knows each other. No matter where you live, someone you know is right down the street. My grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins all live within a few streets from each other. I definitely enjoyed my time living in this area but I like to move on to new things for when I go off to college.
Middle river isn't a bad place to live. Unfortunately it's not up kept, and the crime rate is high.
I would love for there to be a community day so families could get to meet, law enforcement could attend, and find ways to make Middle River better for future generations.
