"Good and bad"

Upton is a neighborhood that is located in the central section of the city, near the University of Maryland at Baltimore and University of Maryland Medical Center. North Fremont Avenue, Laurens Street, McCulloh Street and West Preston Street, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood as a mixture of both single family attached “row homes” as well as a large number of multifamily apartment buildings, some of which may be subsidized.

Mast transit is excellent here with a large number of bus stops as well as the State Center Metro Station and the Upton Station. Dedicated green space can be found in the Robert C. Marshall Park along Pennsylvania Avenue as well as the Wilson & Etting Park, Mcmechen and Etting Park and the Henry H. Garnet Park. Schools in Upton include the Upton School, the Bethel Christian School, as well as the nearby Booker T. Washington Middles School, the Historic Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Elementary School and the Renaissance Academy. Shopping and dining options are available within the neighborhood, but are limited to an extent.

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 not sure about living here due to the large number of apartments located here. I like the number of schools here as well as the parks. I guess I would need to understand the crime statistics here and spend some time in Upton to make an informed decision.
