"Lots of multifamily housing...lots"

Oldtown is a neighborhood located in the east region of Baltimore. East Eager Street, North Eden Street, North Central Avenue, Orleans Street, and Greenmount Avenue generally form the borders of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Houses here are typically multifamily apartments, and are generally newer structures. One of the things you will notice here is the number of vacant lots throughout the neighborhood, which suggests some redevelopment is underway here.

Other than the Institute of Notre Dame, there are no other educational facilities in Oldtown. Numerous places of worship are located throughout the neighborhood as are bus stops for those wishing to take advantage of public transportation. While there is no dedicated green space in the neighborhood, there is a large athletic facility and track located here. Sopping is somewhat limited, although there is a pharmacy located here. Restaurants tend to be mainly fast food and take out.

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 am not sure about this neighborhood. If it were up to me, I would want to look into the nature of the large amount of multifamily housing here. It is not clear if it is subsidized housing or not. I am not sure if more apartments are planned for the neighborhood or not, but it may be worth looking into if townhomes are built here or not.
