Just out of morbid curiosity James, what is the current status of the Upper Fells Point neighborhood? I see Fells Point is in the Blue Zone on the Baltimore Travel Guide. Is Upper Fells Point in “transition”?
Ah, yes, Jeremy. I see you failed to read the disclaimer!
The five block rule states that if you are within five blocks [the distance a snickers bar will get a hoodrat with a hammer from point black to point white] of a red zone, you are never safe outside of your barred condominium. The blue zone really means that the people that live there will not attack you.
The yellow zone is generally safer as there are tough people living there and Dindu patrols avoid tough targets.
Oh, a close look at most upscale [blue] zones within Baltimore areas will show that they are next to red zones and that they are not more than five blocks deep!
