"Take a look"

Penn North is a neighborhood that is located in the west section of the city. Druid Hill Avenue, West North Avenue, and North Fulton Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as numerous commercial buildings and a number of multifamily apartments. The structures in the neighborhood are in varying conditions as far as maintenance is concerned.

The Penn North Metro Station and the numerous bus stops will appeal to many future residents of this neighborhood. In addition to dedicated green space at North and Woodbrook Parks, residents enjoy man shopping and dining options, particularly along West North Avenue. Westside Elementary School and the Islamic Community School will appeal to those families with children, while families will enjoy the Parkview Recreation Center. There are a number of places to worship as well.

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.

Although many will like the neighborhood because of the Metro station, many may not like the conditions of some of the properties. Take a look and make your own decision. It is hard to go wrong with a neighborhood with a Metro station.
