"Close to the hospital"

Saint Agnes is a neighborhood that is located in the southwest section of the city, adjacent to the Saint Agnes Health Center. Strickland Street, South Caton Avenue, Wilkens Avenue and the railroad tracks stretching from Wilkens Avenue to Strickland Street, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here are the typical attached single-family “row home” style structures found throughout Baltimore.

Most of the shopping and dining options can be fond along Wilkens Avenue, which is where most of the commercial businesses are located. Dedicated green space can be found in the Francis X. Gallagher Park. Families with children will not find any schools within Saint Agnes, but will find schools nearby including Cardinal Gibbons High School and Sarah M. Roach Elementary School. Numerous bus stops can be found along Wilkens Avenue and Caton Street for those wishing to utilize mass transit. There are no places of worship within the neighborhood.

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.

All in all this is not a bad neighborhood. I would be sure to consider the noise from the railroads tracks along the perimeter. Also be aware that the area around Wilkens Avenue can get busy with traffic because of the hospital.
