"Mixed use neighborhood"

Curtis Bay is an interesting neighborhood located in the south region of Baltimore. East Patapsco Avenue, West Bay Avenue and Curtis Bay generally form the borders of this mixed-use neighborhood. Homes here range from typical older “row-home” style attached single-family homes to newer detached single-family homes. In addition there is a large amount of commercial and industrial uses, including docks and a large rail complex. People considering this area may want to look into the amount of coal dust that reaches the residential component of the neighborhood.

Dedicated green space can be found at the Curtis Bay Park where residents can also enjoy the attached Curtis Bay Recreation Center. Thee is a very large parcel of land in the neighborhood and residents considering Curtis Bay should investigate what this is zoned for. The only school located in Curtis Bay is the Benjamin Franklin High School. There are no places of worship here and shopping options are limited. Although there are a number of bars located in the neighborhood that serve food, many will want to venture into other areas for more dining options.

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.

This neighborhood is worth taking a look at if you are interested in this part of town. I find the mix of residential and industrial uses interesting.
