"People are dying to come here!"

Berea is a neighborhood in the east section of the city. Sinclair Lane, Edison Highway, East Biddle Street and North Rose Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Approximately half of the neighborhood consists of the Baltimore Cemetery and the other half is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. The homes found her are the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore.

Fort Worthington Elementary School I located here as well as the Lakewood Elementary School. Heritage High School is nearby as well. Residents will enjoy the Fort Washington Recreation Center as well. Shopping and restaurant options are somewhat limited within Berea, so many residents will want to venture into other neighborhoods for those options. Access to public transportation is available utilizing the large number of bus stops located along the main roads. Although dedicated green space is limited, residents can walk to the nearby Clifton Park, which is quite nice.

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.

Overall this neighborhood may be worth a visit. Personally, I do not care for the lack of shopping and dining options but if the price of the home were right, I may be able to overlook those details!
