TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — There are new bragging rights for 19 Baltimore County communities.

Baltimore Magazine’s April edition listed its picks for Baltimore County’s best neighborhoods, and as Pat Warren explains, the county honored them Tuesday.

Rodgers Forge is one of Baltimore County’s oldest neighborhoods, and known for its at-home feeling.

“We step outside our door about 8:30 in the morning, a lot of us walk to school together,” said resident Bethany Lippy.

Quarry Lake, one of the newest communities, attracts lots of visitors.

Dale Smith is one of them.

“It’s a serene place, somewhere I can unwind between jobs or after I finish working and just decompress.” he told WJZ.

Both Quarry Lake and Rodgers Forge are included in the 20 communities listed as Baltimore Magazine’s best Baltimore County neighborhoods.

They were rated on quality of life matters, including housing, schools, shopping, safety, walkability, green space, recreation, easy commutes and historical relevance.

Each community named was honored by the county.

“Baltimore County is a collection of great neighborhoods,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz.”And this is really the best of the best for this year.”

“There’s always some little old lady from Diddlyville that calls you and says ‘you left me out,’ and I’m sure there’s a couple of good neighborhoods we left out,” said Ken Iglehart, managing editor of Baltimore Magazine.

But Iglehart said he is confident of the magazine’s choices.

And for those who didn’t get picked, there’s always next year.

Baltimore Magazine is the oldest city magazine in the country.

These neighborhoods made the cut:

1. Butler
2. Cockeysville
3. Glyndon
4. Hunt Valley

7. Mays Chapel
8. Monkton/Hereford
