"Be careful"

Poppleton is a neighborhood located in the west region of Baltimore. West Mulberry Street, North Cary Street, West Baltimore Street and North Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard generally form the borders of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Houses are a mixture of attached single-family homes as well as multifamily apartments. One of the things you will notice here is the number of vacant lots throughout the neighborhood.

In addition to having the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum located here, Poppleton is where the city’s Chief Medical Examiner is located. Although there not any schools located in the neighborhood, there are a number of places of worship. Dedicated green space can be found at the Sarah Ann Park located at North Carlton Avenue. Residents desiring to use public transportation to get around town will find numerous bus stops. Shopping and restaurants are limited somewhat limited.

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. You do not want to be a guest of the medical examiner!

I think I am going to give this neighborhood a pass for now.
