"Really nice neighborhood!"

Christopher is a neighborhood that is located in the northeast section of the city, near the Mount Pleasant Golf Course. East Northern Parkway, Old Harford Road, Roselawn Avenue and Fair Oaks Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. A majority of the homes here are detached single family homes on relatively large lots. Most appear to be very well maintained.

The only schools in this neighborhood, which is primarily residential in nature, are the Calvary Lutheran School and Hamilton Christian School. The Friendship Academy of Engineering as well as the Hamilton Elementary Middle School are two schools that are nearby as well. Residents looking for dining and shopping options will want to go to some of the adjacent neighborhoods for those activities. There are no places of worship in the neighborhood, but you will find a number of bus stops here to provide a mass transit alternative. Although there is no dedicated green space within Christopher, residents will find North Hartford Park nearby as well as Mount Pleasant Park and the associated golf course and ice arena.

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 really like this neighborhood and think it is definitely worth a visit!
