"If you like small neighborhoods....."

Belair-Parkside is a small neighborhood in the northeast section of the city adjacent to Herring Run Park. Eastwood Drive, Parkside Drive Route 1 and Eierman Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses, with the commercial component being concentrated along Route 1. Homes here are a mixture of well-maintained attached and detached single-family structures. The attached homes are the typical “row home” style structures found just about everywhere in the city.

While Belair-Parkside is primarily a residential neighborhood that lacks many of the amenities such as schools that many potential residents look for in a neighborhood, it is still a great neighborhood. One of the things that I really like about Belair-Parkside is that I can walk out of the door and be in Herring Run Park in moments. Those residents looking for shopping and restaurants will find plenty of options along Route 1. Another plus to living here is that you are close to I-95 /I-895 as well, especially if you are a car commuter.

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.

If you like small neighborhoods, you may want to consider Belair-Parkside, especially if you do not mind having a neighborhood school. I like the fact that my favorite neighbor could be Herring Run Park.
