Crime tip of the day: Avoid night-time visits to ATMs!

Avoid using ATMs at night, if at all possible. Most of the time the user is highlighted in light, but anyone watching can be safely (for them) in the dark. If you live in North Baltimore and must use an ATM, Wolman Hall on Hopkins' campus at 34th Street is probably the safest around (though parking might be tough at times). It is inside, with a guard-staffed desk, and not easily visible from anyone outside--not to mention the fact that thug types would stand out in the area of Hopkins' dorms.

A second choice is the machine inside Whole Foods on Smith Avenue in Mt. Washington.
