"One of my favorites!"

Sabina-Mattfield is a neighborhood in the north section of the city near Johns Hopkins University. Fairfield Avenue, Stanton, Falls Road, the West Northern Parkway and the Jones Falls Expressway (I-83) generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of residential buildings as well as numerous commercial establishments. Homes here are typically single-family detached structures that are well maintained. The homes tend to be located on wooded lots.

This is a great neighborhood despite being located along I-83 and the associated road noise. Shopping is excellent as there is a Whole Foods Market here along with numerous stores and restaurants, both within the neighborhood as well as the adjacent neighborhoods. Dedicated green space lovers will appreciate the number of trees here as well as Asbury Park. The Meadowbrook Aquatic and Fitness Center is located here as well. Those utilizing public transportation will find numerous bus stops along the main roads. One negative to living here I you have children is that there is no neighborhood school.

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.

Sabina-Mattfield is an excellent neighborhood and should be checked out by anyone looking to lie in the north section of the city. One thing to keep in mind of is the road noise from I-83, especially when the leaves are off of the trees. Best to look into this before buying there to make sure you can live with it.
