"College town"

John Hopkins Homewood is a residential and institutional neighborhood in the north section of Baltimore. North Charles Street, West 29th Street, Carnegie Way and West University Parkway generally form the borders of this neighborhood. John Hopkins’ facilities are spread throughout the neighborhood, but there is a small residential area along 29th Street. As with many Baltimore neighborhoods, the few homes here are attached single-family “row homes”.

As one would expect, almost everything in the neighborhood revolves around the school. The facilities are vast and widespread, but are geared towards the students only. There are several dedicated green spaces located here including Wyman Park and Wyman Park Dell. The only shopping, religious facilities, schools and restaurants you are going to find will be those belonging to John Hopkins University. Traffic in the neighborhood can be terrible, especially on days when sporting events are taking place.

There 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 always liked the campus at John Hopkins and this is a great neighborhood if you were in college again.
