"Just apartments"

Perkins Homes is a neighborhood that is located in the southeast section of the city and is within walking distance of the Inner Harbor. Crab Street, East Pratt Street, South Eden Street and Bank Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here are all multifamily apartment buildings with an institutional feel to them.

Beside the apartments, there is nothing in Perkins Homes except the apartments. The nearest schools are City Spring Elementary School and Baltimore Freedom Academy along East Pratt Street. The nearest dedicated green space is two blocks away in City Springs Park. Shopping and restaurants are very limited in the immediate area around Perkins Homes, but there are more available as you begin to get three or four blocks from the neighborhood. There are a number of bus stops along the main roads for 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.

I really do not like this neighborhood because of the institutional feel of the apartment buildings. Anyone considering moving to Perkins Homes or the immediate area should do their due diligence on the area to determine if rents here are subsidized.
