It’s a quite, safe, and pretty friendly environment for families. However Baltimore’s public school educational system is poor and taxes have gone up (especially property taxes), the Chesapeake Bay’s water looks disgusting, and our water pipelines were way overdue for a renovation. Baltimore in general has expensive cost-of-living expenses despite the fact that we only have two tourists areas that are quite uneventful. Nevertheless Pikesville is pretty stable.

I have been living in Pikesville, Maryland for 22 years. Pikesville is a suburban community in Baltimore. There are many neighborhoods, which are all very safe. There is a large jewish community in certain areas of Pikesville, as well as a mix of African-American and Caucasian communities. It is near Reisterstown road where you can find many shops, including thrifting, food, salons, you name it! Everything is easy to find and easy to get to. I love living here in Pikesville!
Pikesville is a beautiful, almost rural neighborhood right outside of Baltimore. It is heavily wooded, interspersed with horse pastures and secluded homes. While the area is quiet and peaceful, it can be a little too quiet due to a lack of culture, restaurants and businesses in the area.
