To the west of the Johns Hopkins campus there is a neighborhood called Hampden where the inhabiants are mostly people whose ancestors have lived there for over a century, but where many students live. That is where the story is set. North of Hampden is a more expensive area called Roland Park, essentially all-white. East of JHU is Charles Village, where the chief crime is drunken driving. Oh, and downtown is safe at most hours. David Simon lives in an alternate universe, or at least other parts of town.
