"Not sure why..."

Langston Hughes is a residential neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city. Reisterstown Road, Oakmont Avenue, Litchfield Avenue and North Belvedere Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as numerous commercial buildings. Most appear to need maintenance.

Langston Hughes Elementary School is the local school in the neighborhood for those families with children. There are no parks or other dedicated green space available in Langston Hughes, which could be a big negative for many. There is shopping and a limited number of restaurants along the perimeter of the neighborhood, but the variety is not great. Residents utilizing public transportation will find numerous bus stops along the main roads.

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 am not sure why I cannot get excited about this neighborhood. I think it is because of the lack of dedicated green space as well as the overall feel of the neighborhood. If you are considering this area, take a look and see if you like it.
