Edgewood has it's quiet and nice areas too. Edgewood has hard working, intelligent people who live and work in and around Edgewood. Racial and Cultural diversity exist in Edgewood and Aberdeen, mainly due to the military presence. However, diversity should not be frowned upon. I'm a life long native of Edgewood, heard these stories all my life and while crime is higher, it helps to use common sense. Stay away from areas you know are dangerous-just like you would in the city and stay away from those who live dangerous lifestyles. Most of the people who commit violent crimes in edgewood are not native Harford County residents but migrated from areas outside of the county. Again, I have managed to live in Edgewood since 1974, without incidence. I am also a successful business owner. Use common sense before making unfair comments and generalizing one area. Thankyou.
