"A Rose"

Radnor-Winston might romantically be described as a rose among thorns. Located in Baltimore’s often troubled North district, it has maintained its historical integrity in spite of the racial unrest, poverty and industry shutdowns that have nearly destroyed more than one of its sister communities.
Perhaps Radnor-Winston’s success is to do some sort of supernatural protection. After all, it is located just behind the famous Catholic enclaves Loyola University and Notre Dame’s Baltimore campus. While the prayers no doubt help, it is probably more likely that the students looking for nearby housing are not as likely as non-Catholics to be involved in drugs and violence.
Another possible reason for its success is the charm and value of Radnor-Winston’s 220 single family homes. Consisting of everything from cottages to bungalows to row houses, they continue to attract a culturally diverse citizenship that are mostly of middle and upper middle incomes. These good folks tend to work hard, many at one of the local colleges mentioned above. Plenty are also active in the Radnor-Winston Improvement Association, a group of citizens committed to maintaining the community’s pleasant surroundings and stable property values. They meet regularly to make suggestions for community improvement, and to keep citizens abreast of social and political issues that are relevant to their lives.
Pros
  • cultural diversity
  • nice, affordable housing
Cons
