Do you have your plastic lawn chairs and traffic cones securing your spot along Fred for the parade?

I know two HoCo teachers that live there. One has asked me for gun advice.
In general terms, Catonsville seems to offer some decent relatively affordable housing with an easy commute to Baltimore or HoCo.
I know a bank president who just a bought a nice house there.

There's been some general burglary problems recently in the neighborhoods along Edmondson between 695 and 40. It seems to go in spurts until the nicer neighborhoods realize they are soft targets.

I don't consider Catonsville that affordable unless you live in the crappy parts. Well it is more affordable than Howard County. It is all relative I guess.

No, I avoid the parade. Although I heard some people heckled O'Malley a few years ago.

I literally just moved out of Catonsville 3 weeks ago. And I have not heard anything about papa johns getting robbed. Guess living in the burbs of Columbia is where I am going to be staying for now.

What's with those really nice houses on the city line on 40? Its like a random neighborhood of old style nice houses. But it's so close to where the blue lights start. My buddy used to live in the apartments down from McDonald's and the tattoo shop. No one called the cops on our rowdy asses and seemed quiet. Well except for us.

Back in the day Catonsville was where the rich folks from the city would retire to for the summer to get away from the heat. Hence the nice houses. We're talking 1890-1930 or so. There are some Really beautiful houses through there, sadly most haven't been kept up.

That is the idea. Destroy everything. Then rebuild with your own new rules.

It seems to me that Catonsville outside of the beltway and away from Route 40 is fine and a nice area to live. There are natural "no man lands" that disconnects the City from the County. For example, Hospitals and grave yards. Where there aren't the city slowly creeps out. The City has been moving out along Rt40 and Liberty Road...etc for a long time now. So yeah its not great in those areas. However in central Catonsville and over to Arbutus is nice.

That said, I live over by the High School. A while ago we had a guy who stole a car, shot by the police in the act, turn into the HS parking lot and pass out from wound.... My thoughts were as long as the police shoot them before get out my way, I am ok with that... Yes sure I would rather them shoot them dead to avoid the mess on the parking lot and all the fuss but I don't think I can complain that much.

I still think the Catonsville, Arbutus, Linthicum, Elkridge, Ellicott City..etc. area is a nice area to live. Beats the hell out of Columbia and communist HOAs and no chain link fences and no signs and cookie cutter communities and drum circles... ok I could go on for a while on that one. However when I look the rest of places the City Refugees moved to, I still like it the best.

Seems to me every area has its spots to avoid. Catonsville does back up to some bad areas and there is that transition area that is not as nice as the rest of Catonsville. You can almost tell by the house pricing. Better price, worse area. When I think of Catonsville, I think of Frederick Road and Rolling Road, having grown up in Arbutus. Most everywhere along those roads is still pretty nice.

I work in Catonsville and most of my partners live here. As mentioned, off Frederick Rd. is a really nice place to live. Cool old homes. A lot of nice people around. There are some areas where it is not so nice....
