Understand

Prince George's County, or more affectionately, PG, is best known as the wealthiest majority-black county in the U.S. It is home to both the main campus of the University of Maryland and a major NASA facility.

There is a pretty clear division between Northern PG County (northeast of D.C.) and Southern PG County (southeast of D.C.). The former is significantly more densely populated and wealthy than its poorer cousins to the south, which share more in common with their even poorer neighboring areas in southeastern D.C..
