"Is that a Truck Stop?"

Medford is a neighborhood that is located in the southeast section of the city. I-95, O’Donnell Street, South Drew Street and Cardiff 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 establishments including a truck stop. In addition, you will find several multifamily buildings in the neighborhood.

Car commuters will like the ease of access to I-95, from this neighborhood, however many are not going to like other aspects of Medford. There are very few options for shopping or dining. Those with children will not find a neighborhood school here nor will they find any dedicated green space. The biggest drawback to the neighborhood is the noise from the truck stop / Travel Plaza as well as I-95.

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.

Definitely spend some time in the neighborhood, especially at night, before you make a commitment on a home here. The noise from nearby I-95 is constant as is the noise from the truck stop / Travel Plaza.
