"Close to the Ravens"

Sharp Leadenhall is a neighborhood in the south section of the city, along I-395 and is home to the Little Montgomery Street Historical District. South Hanover Street, Race Street and South Eutaw Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here are attached single-family structures and are the typical “row home” style structures found just about everywhere in the city. In addition, a number of multi-family buildings can be found here as well.

Sharp-Leaderhall Elementary School is found here and is the only school located in the neighborhood. I really enjoy the Solo Gibbs Park, which is the only dedicated green space found here. There are numerous stores and restaurants scattered about the neighborhood for the residents to enjoy. Many maybe disturbed to discover the South Baltimore Homeless Shelter located along W West Street, but thankfully there is a place available to the less fortunate in this economy. There are several places of worship located within the neighborhood as well. Public transportation is available with numerous public bus stops. Ravens fans with season tickets will enjoy living near the stadium.

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.

Overall the neighborhood may be worth considering, but be sure that you are ok with the road noise from I-395. Also be prepared to fight the crowds on game day.
