"Too industrial and commercial for me...."

Towanda Grantley is a neighborhood in the northwest section of the city adjacent to the West Coldspring Metro Station. West Cold Spring Lane, Reisterstown Road and Wabash Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood has a mixture of commercial, industrial and residential uses. Industrial uses include a concrete batch plant. Homes here are attached single-family structures and are the typical “row home” style structures found just about everywhere in the city.

Adjacent to the concrete plant is the Towanda Playground, which is the only dedicated green space in the neighborhood. The Baltimore Junior Academy is the only school located here. There are a number of businesses including automotive repair facilities located around Towanda Grantley. Restaurants and shopping options are limited here as well. As you would expect, public transportation is excellent with the Metro Station and numerous bus stops located throughout 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.

It is hard for me to get excited about this neighborhood because of the industrial uses. In addition, the train tracks are active with the Metro station nearby. Seems like it is a hard place to get any peace and quiet, but you decide for yourself.
