Cylburn is a predominantly African-American neighborhood located in northern Baltimore. Most of the residents are middle class, single parent families who work hard each day to provide for their children. The local elementary school has a low student teacher ratio of one teacher for every 15 students. However, there is still a good bit of poverty in the area, with almost all the children in the school qualifying for the free lunch program.

One of the things that make Cylburn popular is its excellent access to public transportation. In addition to extensive bus service, there are several metro stations that can take residents to any part of the city for work or recreation. One nearby location is Fort McHenry. In addition to offering real insight into American history, the area is also a hug green space where families can relax and play.

Generally speaking, residents of Cylburn are slightly better off than the average Baltimore resident. Because of the community’s ethnicity, there is a unique flavor of African American heritage and tradition. Local shops and restaurants tend to cater to the needs and preferences of the neighborhood so it is an excellent location for those looking to be completely immersed in this type of American culture.
