"Not for me...."

Darley Park is a neighborhood located in the east region of Baltimore. Hartford Road, Holy Cross Lane and Saint Lo Drive generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here are attached “row house” type of structures in a variety of conditions as far as maintenance is concerned.

I cannot get excited about this neighborhood for a number of reasons. There are no schools, shopping, restaurants or places of worship. There is a large athletic field here, but other than that there is no dedicated green space. There are a number of vacant lots as well as a set of railroad tracks. Hartford Road has several businesses as well as a numerous bus stops, but there is nothing really here. If you are considering this neighborhood, be sure to do your due diligence before making a commitment.

Like many neighborhoods in large cities, crimes against people and property can occur at any time and crime rates can vary from street to street and day to day. As always, check recent crime statistics to make an informed decision on any neighborhood you are considering living in or visiting.

Personally, I am going to give this neighborhood a pass as there are many more appealing options out there.
Cons
  • Railroad tracks
  • Lack of everything else
