"Not bad"

New Northwood is a neighborhood that is located in the northeast section of the city near Morgan State University. Woodbourne Avenue, Loch Raven Boulevard, East Cold Springs Lane and The Alameda, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood has a little bit of everything to offer in the way of housing, including a number of multifamily apartment buildings as well as attached single-family homes as well as detached single family homes. Many of the homes and buildings here are relatively new.

Chinquapin Run Park is located here for those that enjoy dedicated green space. Residents will find the Woodbourne School as well as the Woodbourne School for Special Education and Northwood Community Academy located here. Since this is primarily a residential neighborhood, you will find a limited number of shopping and restaurant options in New Northwood. As with many neighborhoods, access to mass transit is available with a number of bus stops scattered throughout the neighborhood.

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.

This may be a neighborhood worth looking into if you work nearby. I am neutral on New Northwood because of the large number of apartments and the lack of amenities such as shopping and restaurants.
