"Shopping is close by..."

Hillen is a mixed-use neighborhood in the northeast section of Baltimore. East Cold Springs Lane, Hillen Road, Roundhill Road and Loch Raven Boulevard generally form the borders of this neighborhood. As with many Baltimore neighborhoods, homes here are attached single-family “row homes” in various conditions. Here you will find both residential and commercial buildings within the neighborhood.

The Northwood Shopping Center provides residents a number of places to shop and many fast food style restaurants are located near here along Havenwood Road. Residents will find several places of worship, but will not find any dedicated green space, which is a negative since many of the lots are not wooded. There are no schools located in Hillen, so residents will children will need to factor this into their decision if this is a neighborhood. There are a number of public bus stops along Lock Haven Road for those wishing to take advantage of public transportation.

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.

Overall this is a neighborhood worth considering, especially if being close to shopping is important to you.
