"Simply the Best"

Upper Fells Point got its start as the home of immigrants coming to Baltimore to work on the docks and in local factories. By the turn of the last century, it was a regular melting pot of immigrants from all over Europe. Today its comfortable row houses and charming streets continue to attract immigrants, but this time from South America. As a result, it often bears the affectionate nickname “Spanish Town.”
Whereas the original residents might have been attracted to its peaceful streets that were still within walking distance of their jobs, today’s young professional residents love Upper Fells Point for its nearby urban opportunities, including nightclubs and good restaurants. They love to take a water taxi across the harbor to all the excitement of the Inner Harbor.
On the other hand, those who have lived here a while and are getting up in years appreciate its proximity to top notch medical care at the world famous Johns Hopkins Hospital.
The Baltimore City Paper summarized Fell’s Point attraction in 2006 this way, “It's got a hardscrabble exterior, a booming Latino community, a dash of the old-school Baltimore that's being edged out in most of the city's up-and-coming environments.” That is the same year in which they named it Baltimore’s Best Neighborhood.
