"Worth a visit"

Northwest Community Action is a neighborhood in the northwest section of the city near Gwynns Falls Park. Bloomingdale Road, West North Avenue, North Dukeland Street and Braddish Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here are typically attached single-family “row home” style structures that are found throughout Baltimore City. In addition, there are a significant number of apartment buildings here including some of which that may be subsidized.

There are a number of schools both within the neighborhood and in the immediate area including New Song Academy, Alternative Elementary School and Rosemont Elementary Middle School. Dedicated green space can be found at Wilbur H. Waters Park as well as at the nearby Gwynns Falls Park. There are a limited number of smaller neighborhood carry out and fast food restaurants. Shopping options are available for residents of Northwest Community Action, but are mainly smaller neighborhood markets and stores. Bus stops can be found along the main roads providing access to mass transit.

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.

If I were looking into moving into the northwest section of the city, I would take a look at Northwest Community Action, especially if I could find a deal on a row house here. Be sure to look into the number and type of apartments here before you commit!
