"Not sure about the non residential uses here...."

Broening Manor is a neighborhood that is located in the southeast section of the city near the I95 and I-895 interchange. Holabrid Avenue, Broening Highway, Cardiff Avenue, Danville Avenue and Dundalk Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood has a little bit of everything to offer in the way of housing, including a number of multifamily apartment buildings as well as attached single-family homes as well as detached single family homes. There are also a number of commercial buildings and industrial facilities here as well.

Residents with children will be drawn to the neighborhood because of Holabird Elementary School, which is the only school in Broening Manor. A limited amount of shopping and restaurants can be found along Holabird Avenue, however more options for these activities will be found in adjacent neighborhoods. Commuters will like the easy of getting to both I-95 and I-895. However, those utilizing public transportation will not find any bus stops here. A big negative for me is the lack of dedicated green space. I really like parks and for me it is “must have” if living in the city.

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.

I find the lack of green space to be a “deal breaker” for this neighborhood. The commercial and industrial space along Broening Highway a big negative away. That being said, you may be able to find a home here that meets your needs, especially if having a school within walking distance is important to you. Take a look and make up your own mind.
