"Maybe for a Start"

Mt. Winans is not necessarily a great place to live, for several reasons. First, it is largely industrial and commercial, with not a lot of residential housing available. And, unfortunately, what there is is not very well maintained or cared for. While this was once a respectable, middle class neighborhood that attracted blue collar workers and their families, much of the Victorian Era buildings were lost in the Baltimore Fire of 1903.
Also, because it tends to attract a rather poor population, there is a significant amount of crime that is also part of the local landscape. That is not to say that many of the people who live here do not want something better for their lives. It’s just that they often don’t have the resources necessary to alter their surroundings.
On the other hand, if you want to live, work and shop within in few blocks, Mt. Winans might be just the ticket. It could be especially attractive to a student or someone who has just left home the first time. You could live here cheaply, even without the expense of a car, and save you money for something better. However, I don’t think anyone would want to make this neighborhood their long term home.
