"Check out the noise and make sure you can live with it!"

SBIC is a neighborhood located in the south region of Baltimore. Race Street, East Ostend Street, Light Street and I-95 generally form the borders of the neighborhood. A mixture of residential and commercial building will be found here. Homes here are typically the attached single-family row style homes found throughout Baltimore.

Home to a number of places of worship, this is not a great neighborhood for many. Although there are not any schools within the neighborhood, residents with children will find the South Baltimore Learning Center on the other side of East Ostend Avenue handy. Numerous neighborhood style restaurants are scattered throughout SBIC. Shopping is limited however so many will need to venture out into adjacent neighborhoods. Dedicated green space does not exist, although Riverside Park is nearby. Residents will find numerous bus stops located along the main streets.

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 am going to pass on this neighborhood mainly due to the proximity of I-95 and the numerous railroad tracks in the area. If I were considering moving here, I would visit during different times of the day and night to see if I could live with the noise.
