"Nice lake...."

Montebello is a neighborhood in the northeast section of the city near the main campus of Morgan State University. East 32nd Street, Hillen Road, Argonne Drive and Lake Montebello Drive generally form the borders of this neighborhood. There is a small residential component of this neighborhood that is located along East 32nd Street. Here you will find a number of attached single-family “row houses” that are so common in Baltimore. The majority of the neighborhood incorporates Montebello Lake, Montebello Waster water Treatment facility and the annex of Morgan State University.

The Montebello Elementary Junior Academy is the only school located in Montebello. There are no restaurants or shopping facilities here. Access to mass transit does not exist, nor are there any places of worship. Although there is no park here, there is Lake Montebello. I really like to walk around the lake on Lake Drive as well as on the Herring Run Trail near the Morgan State Annex. Although there is lots of undeveloped and heavily wooded land along Argonne Drive, I believe that it belongs to Morgan State University and could be developed by the school in the future. One of the downsides to the neighborhood is the waster water treatment facility and ponds.

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 like it here, however the adjacent neighborhoods will have man more housing options. Be sure aware of the water treatment plant and odors that can come from the facility at any time in different weather conditions.
