City zip code with a county feel. I love being so close to downtown but have a grassy backyard and no noise!

Crime in my area is pretty bad but not as bad as other neighborhoods. The most people have to worry about is people trying to break in to your house. I've personally had people try and walk in my yard and steal something in broad daylight. Concerts come to play at the Pimlico Racetrack and people get drunk and disorderly they break peoples windows, mirrors, ect.
The area is quiet but crime has gotten worse a couple festivals come to preform at the racetrack people wind up getting drunk and destroying peoples property. Schools are okay they don't do much about bullying even with the zero tolerance policy.
