"One of the best neighborhoods in the city!"

If you're looking for a place to live in Baltimore, you should start by looking here. Joseph Lee is the residential part of the Bayview neighborhood. It is often called the "A-B-C" neighborhood because all of the north-south streets are laid out in alphabetical order. The neighborhood features numerous examples of traditional Baltimore row houses. The oldest houses in the neighborhood, in the western part, were constructed in the 1920s, with the houses in the eastern part build in the 1950s, The neighborhood features streets line with azalea bushes. The neighborhood is predominately white middle-class professionals, many of whom work at the nearby biomedical research facility at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center that houses the National Institutes on Aging and Drug Abuse.

There have been several development projects in the last decade that have gone a long way to increasing the attractiveness of the neighborhood. These include "Archer Square," an open-air shopping center developed at the former Archer Fence complex; and a Streetscape project along Eastern Avenue. In all, Joseph Lee is one of the more desireable neighborhoods in Baltimore.
