"Why be Concerned?"

Concerned is a neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city. Woodhaven Avenue, Garrison Boulevard, Oakfield Avenue and West Forest Park Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes located in the neighborhood are the typical attached single family “row house” styled home found throughout the city. There are a number of detached single-family homes here as well as a few commercial buildings.

Home to the WBC Community Development Corporation, Concerned has a number of places of worship including the Forest Park Community Church and Wayland Baptist Church. Public transportation via numerous bus stops along the main roads is available for those wishing to utilize mass transportation. Those residents commuting by car will appreciate the fact that the neighborhood is located between I-83 and I-695, so access to the interstate system is easy. Although there is no dedicated green space within Concerned, the Liberty Recreation Center is located off of West Forest Park Avenue, as is Liberty Elementary School for those families with small children. Restaurants and shopping options are very limited here as well, so most residents will want to venture into adjacent neighborhoods for those activities.

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.

All things considered you may want to take a look at Concerned and see if it is a neighborhood for you. I drive a lot with my job and like the location and easy access to the interstate system.
