"Great homes here!"

Village of Homeland is a neighborhood in the north section of the city near the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. York Road, Homeland Avenue, North Charles Street and East Melrose Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood that has both residential and commercial components. Homes here are detached single-family homes that are well maintained and are located on large wooded lots. In addition, there are a number of multi-family apartment buildings here as well.

There are a number of restaurants and shopping options located within the neighborhood, especially along York Road. Although there are no schools here, there are several located nearby including the Gilman School and the Bryn Mawr School. Access to mass transit is available with several bus stops being located along the main roads of the neighborhood. There is no dedicated green space such as parks although the neighborhood has a park like feel due to the wooded lots.

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 really like it here and would love to buy a house here. Definitely take a look at the Village of Homeland if you are looking for a nice detached single-family home in the north section of the city.
Pros
  • Nice detached single family homes
  • Shopping and dining nearby
  • Wooded lots

"Nice lake...."

Montebello is a neighborhood in the northeast section of the city near the main campus of Morgan State University. East 32nd Street, Hillen Road, Argonne Drive and Lake Montebello Drive generally form the borders of this neighborhood. There is a small residential component of this neighborhood that is located along East 32nd Street. Here you will find a number of attached single-family “row houses” that are so common in Baltimore. The majority of the neighborhood incorporates Montebello Lake, Montebello Waster water Treatment facility and the annex of Morgan State University.

The Montebello Elementary Junior Academy is the only school located in Montebello. There are no restaurants or shopping facilities here. Access to mass transit does not exist, nor are there any places of worship. Although there is no park here, there is Lake Montebello. I really like to walk around the lake on Lake Drive as well as on the Herring Run Trail near the Morgan State Annex. Although there is lots of undeveloped and heavily wooded land along Argonne Drive, I believe that it belongs to Morgan State University and could be developed by the school in the future. One of the downsides to the neighborhood is the waster water treatment facility and ponds.

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 like it here, however the adjacent neighborhoods will have man more housing options. Be sure aware of the water treatment plant and odors that can come from the facility at any time in different weather conditions.

"Best part of living here is the Metro station"

Woodmere is a neighborhood in the northwest section of the city near the Rogers Metro Station. West Northern Parkway, Gist Avenue, west Belvedere Avenue and Wabash Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here are typically attached single-family “row home” style structures that are found throughout Baltimore City. In addition, there are a number of detached single-family homes as well. Most of the homes are well maintained and some appear to be newer, especially closer to the Rogers Metro Station.

As you would expect the main draw to the neighborhood is its proximity to the Rogers Metro Station and access to mass transit. There are a number of restaurants as well as neighborhood stores scattered about Woodmere for both residents as well as workers to enjoy. There are no schools located here, nor is there an dedicated green space.

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.

Although the Rogers Metro Station is nice, there are drawbacks to living near it, mainly the noise. All in all this is a pretty nice neighborhood and is worth looking into, especially if you use the Metro system to get to and from work. Just be aware the neighborhood does lack some of the amenities that most of us look for in the city.

If I were looking into moving into the northwest section of the city, I would take a look at Northwest Community Action, especially if I could find a deal on a row house here. Be sure to look into the number and type of apartments here before you commit!

"Why so many parks?"

Harlem Park is a neighborhood in the west section of the city. West Lafayette Avenue, North Fremont Avenue, West Mulberry Street, and North Monroe Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here are typically attached single-family “row home” style structures that are found throughout Baltimore City.

One of the interesting things about Harlem Park is the amount of dedicated green space and parks here. In addition to Harlem Square Park and Lafayette Square Park, there are at least 25 other parks within the neighborhood for residents to enjoy. Augusta Falls Savage Institute of Visual Arts, Youth Opportunity School and Harlem Park Middle School are the only school located within Harlem Park. There are a number of places to worship here including Saint James Episcopal Church and Unity Christian Church. Shopping and restaurants are somewhat limited, so many will want to venture into other neighborhoods for these activities. Access to mass transit is available with a number of bus stops being located within Harlem Park.

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 of this neighborhood despite the number of parks. I would check into the most recent crime data and also look into why these smaller parks were created. Take a look at the neighborhood for yourself and make your own decision.

"Close to the water"

Brewers Hill is a neighborhood in the southeast section of the city. Eastern Avenue, South Haven Street, Dillon Street and South Conking 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.

One of the nice things about this neighborhood is the large number of restaurants in the area, particularly along Eastern Avenue. Shopping is limited to a few neighborhood specialty stores, however there is a Walgreens nearby. Although there are no schools actually in the neighborhood, the Bishop John Neumann School and Friendship Academy of Math are nearby. Access to public transportation is available with many bus stops scattered throughout the neighborhood. Commuters will like the ease of access to I-95. As is the case with many neighborhoods in the city, there is a set of railroad tracks near South Haven Street, which can be noisy at times. One really negative aspect of the neighborhood is the lack f dedicated green space here, although Patterson Park is nearby.

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.

This may be a neighborhood worth checking out., especially if you can find a deal on a place to live. It is close to the water and commuting routes. I also like to eat out so the number of restaurants is appealing. Be sure to check into the noise from the train tracks and make sure you are ok without a neighborhood park.

"Worth a look...."

Rosebank is a neighborhood in the north section of the city and is the home of the Senator Theatre. East Northern Parkway, York Road and Bellona Avenue 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 significant number of detached single-family homes can be found here as well. Homes are typically well maintained and are located on lots with trees.

Govans Presbyterian Church and the associated cemetery take up approximately one third of the neighborhood. There are no schools within Rosebank, nor is there any dedicated green space. If those things are important to you then this neighborhood may not be a good fit for you. Residents of the neighborhood will find numerous restaurants and shopping options including the Zen Café’. There are numerous public bus stops located along the main roads providing easy access to mass transportation.

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.

Despite not having any schools or dedicated green space, I could see myself living here. I have traveled thru Rosebank on numerous occasions with work and find it to be a nice neighborhood. Take a drive thru one day and check it out. It is small but charming as well.

"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.

"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.

"If you like small neighborhoods....."

Belair-Parkside is a small neighborhood in the northeast section of the city adjacent to Herring Run Park. Eastwood Drive, Parkside Drive Route 1 and Eierman Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses, with the commercial component being concentrated along Route 1. Homes here are a mixture of well-maintained attached and detached single-family structures. The attached homes are the typical “row home” style structures found just about everywhere in the city.

While Belair-Parkside is primarily a residential neighborhood that lacks many of the amenities such as schools that many potential residents look for in a neighborhood, it is still a great neighborhood. One of the things that I really like about Belair-Parkside is that I can walk out of the door and be in Herring Run Park in moments. Those residents looking for shopping and restaurants will find plenty of options along Route 1. Another plus to living here is that you are close to I-95 /I-895 as well, especially if you are a car commuter.

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.

If you like small neighborhoods, you may want to consider Belair-Parkside, especially if you do not mind having a neighborhood school. I like the fact that my favorite neighbor could be Herring Run Park.

"Want to live near a MARC station?"

Midtown Edmondson is a neighborhood in the west section of the city. North Monroe Street, West Mulberry Street, North Bentalou Street and West Lafayette Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here tend to be older attached “row home” style structures found throughout Baltimore.

One of the big pluses for this neighborhood is the West Baltimore MARC station along West Franklin Street. This coupled with numerous bus stops provide excellent access to mass transportation options. Dedicated green space can be found at the Lafayette and Payson Park. There are no schools within the neighborhood, however there are a number of places to worship here. Restaurants and stores exist in the neighborhood and while they tend to be smaller neighborhood establishments, they are plentiful throughout Midtown-Edmondson.

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.

Although the MAC train is a draw, potential residents should consider the noise levels prior to making a commitment to the neighborhood. Overall, it may be a neighborhood worth considering, especially if you can get a deal on a “row home” that needs some tender loving care.
Pros
  • MARC Station

"People are dying to come here!"

Berea is a neighborhood in the east section of the city. Sinclair Lane, Edison Highway, East Biddle Street and North Rose Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Approximately half of the neighborhood consists of the Baltimore Cemetery and the other half is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. The homes found her are the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore.

Fort Worthington Elementary School I located here as well as the Lakewood Elementary School. Heritage High School is nearby as well. Residents will enjoy the Fort Washington Recreation Center as well. Shopping and restaurant options are somewhat limited within Berea, so many residents will want to venture into other neighborhoods for those options. Access to public transportation is available utilizing the large number of bus stops located along the main roads. Although dedicated green space is limited, residents can walk to the nearby Clifton Park, which is quite nice.

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 this neighborhood may be worth a visit. Personally, I do not care for the lack of shopping and dining options but if the price of the home were right, I may be able to overlook those details!

"Lots of multifamily housing"

Westgate is a neighborhood in the southwest section of the city near Gwynns Falls / Leakin Park. Baltimore National Pike, Edmondson Road, South Rock Glen Road, Frederick Avenue and Westowne Road generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is residential in nature with a mix of single-family detached homes as well as a large number of multi-family apartment buildings, some of which appear to be subsidized.

The biggest draw to the neighborhood is the schools here. Residents with children will enjoy North Bend Elementary and Middle School as well as West Baltimore Middle School. There are a very limited selection of restaurant and shopping options here. Although many parts of the neighborhood are wooded, there is no dedicated green space within Westgate. On a positive note, there are numerous bus stops along the main roads providing access to public transportation.

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 a big fan of this neighborhood because of the large amount of multi-family housing here, some of which appears to be subsidized. As many know, I really like dedicated green space and parks, so the lack of this amenity is a huge negative for me. That being said, everyone needs a place to live and if you can find a place here within your budget then check it out and make your own decision.

"One of my favorites!"

Sabina-Mattfield is a neighborhood in the north section of the city near Johns Hopkins University. Fairfield Avenue, Stanton, Falls Road, the West Northern Parkway and the Jones Falls Expressway (I-83) generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of residential buildings as well as numerous commercial establishments. Homes here are typically single-family detached structures that are well maintained. The homes tend to be located on wooded lots.

This is a great neighborhood despite being located along I-83 and the associated road noise. Shopping is excellent as there is a Whole Foods Market here along with numerous stores and restaurants, both within the neighborhood as well as the adjacent neighborhoods. Dedicated green space lovers will appreciate the number of trees here as well as Asbury Park. The Meadowbrook Aquatic and Fitness Center is located here as well. Those utilizing public transportation will find numerous bus stops along the main roads. One negative to living here I you have children is that there is no neighborhood school.

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.

Sabina-Mattfield is an excellent neighborhood and should be checked out by anyone looking to lie in the north section of the city. One thing to keep in mind of is the road noise from I-83, especially when the leaves are off of the trees. Best to look into this before buying there to make sure you can live with it.

"Not sure about here!"

Milton Montford / Madison East End is a neighborhood in the east section of the city near Johns Hopkins Hospital. East Eager Street, Edison Highway, East Monument Street and North Patterson Park Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. As is the case with many neighborhoods in Baltimore, there is a mix of residential and commercial uses here. Homes here are the typical attached “row home” structures found throughout the city. Commercial buildings are typically found along East Monument Street.

This is a neighborhood with few amenities for the residents. Here there are no neighborhood schools. Although there is dedicated green space here with the Frank C. Bocek Park being located here, it appears to be a new park with little to offer except an open grass field. There are a number of fast food restaurants as well as shopping options located here as well. Those wishing to worship will find several neighborhood churches. Access to public transportation is available with numerous bus stops located along the main streets.

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 a big fan of this neighborhood. The nearby train tracks are concerning due to the noise although after a while residents say to each other; “train, what train?”. If you are considering living here definitely look into the noise issue as well as the types of commercial businesses here.

"Great neighborood!"

Graceland Park is a neighborhood in the southeast section of the city that is home to the Hebrew Cemetery. Dundalk Avenue, O’Donnell Street, Gusyan Street, I-95, and Eastern Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a wonderful mix of residential and commercial uses. Hoes here are the typical attached single-family “row home” styled structures found throughout Baltimore, as well as a large number of detached single-family homes. Most of the homes appear to be relatively well maintained.

If you are looking for a home in the city, you will find that Graceland Park has lots to offer its residents. Graceland Park-O’Donnell Heights Elementary School is located here as well as Baltimore Community High School and Sacred Heart of Mary School. Although there is no dedicated green space within the neighborhood many of the homes are on wooded lots, which adds to the character of the neighborhood. Commuters will really like the ease of access to I-95, but be aware of the background noise from the road. Numerous restaurants and shopping options are located throughout Graceland Park.

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 really like the mix of housing as well as the commercial uses here. Graceland Park is definitely worth considering!

"Nice, but few amenities...."

Winchester is a neighborhood in the southwest section of the city. Braddish Avenue, Riggs Avenue, Winchester Street, North Franklintown Road, and the set of railroad tracks adjacent to Belmont Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is primarily a residential homes made up of attached single-family “row home” styled structures found throughout Baltimore. Most of the homes appear to be relatively well maintained.

There is not much else in Winchester besides homes. The neighborhood has no dedicated green space for the residents, although Gwyenns Falls and Leakin Parks are nearby. Shopping and dining options are very limited. Rosemont Elementary Middle School, Friendship Prep Academy and New Song Academy are nearby. There are numerous bus stops located throughout the neighborhood for those wishing to take advantage of public transportation.

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.

One of the things that one should look into if you are considering a move into Winchester is the amount of use the railroad tracks gets during the day and night. Be sure to make an informed decision as to the noise level before buying here. If you can live with the lack of amenities within Winchester, this may be a neighborhood worth considering.

"What a park!"

Carroll Park is a neighborhood in the southwest section of the city that is the home of the Carroll Park Municipal Golf Course. Bayard Street, Washington Street, I-95 and a set of railroad tracks to the east of Wilkens Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. This neighborhood does have a small residential component along Bayard Avenue, but for the most part it is all dedicated green space.

Residents will find the Charles Carroll Barrister Elementary School on the outskirts of the neighborhood, as well as the Southwest Baltimore Charter School. Residents will need to go into adjacent neighborhoods for shopping, dining, places of worship. Residents as well as visitors to the neighborhood will find an excellent park and recreation facility including a golf course, six baseball / softball fields, tennis courts, hiking trails and the Mount Clare Museum House. Visitors will appreciate the ease of access since the neighborhood is just off of I-95.

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 a huge fan of this park as it is excellent! Since I love to play golf and really enjoy this course, I would seriously consider living nearby just to enjoy Carroll Park. Even if you do not move into the neighborhood, you should definitely visit Carroll Park one afternoon with the family.

"Not sure about the non residential uses here...."

Broening Manor is a neighborhood that is located in the southeast section of the city near the I95 and I-895 interchange. Holabrid Avenue, Broening Highway, Cardiff Avenue, Danville Avenue and Dundalk Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood has a little bit of everything to offer in the way of housing, including a number of multifamily apartment buildings as well as attached single-family homes as well as detached single family homes. There are also a number of commercial buildings and industrial facilities here as well.

Residents with children will be drawn to the neighborhood because of Holabird Elementary School, which is the only school in Broening Manor. A limited amount of shopping and restaurants can be found along Holabird Avenue, however more options for these activities will be found in adjacent neighborhoods. Commuters will like the easy of getting to both I-95 and I-895. However, those utilizing public transportation will not find any bus stops here. A big negative for me is the lack of dedicated green space. I really like parks and for me it is “must have” if living in the city.

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 find the lack of green space to be a “deal breaker” for this neighborhood. The commercial and industrial space along Broening Highway a big negative away. That being said, you may be able to find a home here that meets your needs, especially if having a school within walking distance is important to you. Take a look and make up your own mind.

"Love it here!"

Union Square is a neighborhood that is located in the southwest section of the city. South Fulton Avenue, West Baltimore Street, South Cary Street and West Pratt Street generally form the borders of this outstanding neighborhood. A majority of the homes here are attached single family “row home” styled homes and appear to be well maintained. There are a number of commercial properties here as well.

Union Square Park is the sole dedicated green space for the residents to enjoy. Families with school age children will find the Steuart Hill Academic Academy here, as well as the Steuart Hill Recreation Center. One of the things that I find appealing is the number of neighborhood stores and places to grab a bite to eat. You are not going to find your chain stores or restaurants in Union Square; they are all small businesses with roots in the neighborhood. Mass transit is available with numerous bus stops strategically located along the main roads. Residents looking for places of worship will find the New Southwest Baptist Church here with other places nearby as well.

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.

If you are interested in living in this part of the city, definitely look at Union Square. In my mind it should be high up on anyone’s list.

Christopher is a neighborhood that is located in the northeast section of the city, near the Mount Pleasant Golf Course. East Northern Parkway, Old Harford Road, Roselawn Avenue and Fair Oaks Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. A majority of the homes here are detached single family homes on relatively large lots. Most appear to be very well maintained.

The only schools in this neighborhood, which is primarily residential in nature, are the Calvary Lutheran School and Hamilton Christian School. The Friendship Academy of Engineering as well as the Hamilton Elementary Middle School are two schools that are nearby as well. Residents looking for dining and shopping options will want to go to some of the adjacent neighborhoods for those activities. There are no places of worship in the neighborhood, but you will find a number of bus stops here to provide a mass transit alternative. Although there is no dedicated green space within Christopher, residents will find North Hartford Park nearby as well as Mount Pleasant Park and the associated golf course and ice arena.

"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.

Farring Baybrook Park is a neighborhood that is located in the south section of the city. West Bay Avenue, Church Street, 5th Street and Duane Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here typically are detached single family homes. One of the striking things about the neighborhood is the amount of open space here, both in parkland and undeveloped land.

In addition, you will find the Farring Baybrook Recreational Center here as well.

One of the downsides to the neighborhood is the lack of shopping or restaurants. There are no bus stops nearby so access to public transportation will be difficult.

Chinquapin Run Park is located here for those that enjoy dedicated green space.

"Not really a park at all...."

South Clifton Park is a neighborhood that is located in the east section of the city. Sinclair Lane, Belair Road, East North Avenue and Hartford Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mix of residential, commercial and industrial uses. Homes located here tend to be the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore.

Hartford Heights Intermediate School is located in the neighborhood for those families with children. In addition, the sprawling Heritage High School is nearby as well. One of the things that I do not like is the lack of green space here, although Clifton Park is nearby. Shopping and restaurants are very limited as well. The commercial uses in the neighborhood tend to be office buildings and there are a number of automotive repair facilities within South Clifton Park. Residents will find a number of bus stops along the main roads, which will provide access to the expanded mass transit system in the city.

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 if I could live here because of the mixture of commercial and industrial uses. Judge for yourself, but there may be better options out there for you and your family.

"Hope you like raking leaves!"

Ten Hills is a very attractive neighborhood that is located in the southwest section of the city. Uplands Parkway, Edmondson Avenue North Rock Glen Road, South Rock Glen Road and South Wickham Road, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here tend to be very well maintained detached single family homes located on heavily wooded lots. There are a few multifamily buildings here as well.

Hunting Hills Swim Club is located here as is St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. Other than that this is a strictly residential neighborhood without any commercial or industrial uses. One of the things that I really like in this neighborhood is Uplands Park. This along with the fact that the neighborhood is heavily wooded, add to the park like feel. Shopping is nearby with Edmondson Village Shopping Center, which is located on Edmondson Avenue, being within walking distance. Although there are no schools within Ten Hills, there are several options nearby including Mount Saint Joseph High School. Access to mass transit is available with numerous bus stops being located here.

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 really like Ten Hills and if I were looking for a detached single family home and like trees, this neighborhood would be high on my list. Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.

"The good and not so good"

Dolfield is a neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city. West Cold Springs Lane, Garrison Boulevard and Wabash Avenue, generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes located in the neighborhood are a mixture of both attached and detached single-family homes as a number of multifamily apartment buildings.

One of the big draws of Dolfield to families with children will be the schools. Residents of the neighborhood will find both Callaway Elementary School and George WF McMechen Senior High School located here. The Baltimore Junior Academy is located nearby as well. In addition to the schools, residents have excellent access to mass transportation with the West Coldspring Metro Station being located here as well as numerous bus stops throughout the neighborhood. Shopping and restaurants are limited in the neighborhood as is dedicated green space. There are a number of commercial businesses in the neighborhood, especially along Wabash Avenue.

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 is ok. I do not like the lack of green space and the number and types of businesses here. If I were considering living here I would definitely be sure to check on the noise levels within the neighborhood from the nearby Metro trains as well as from the automotive repair businesses along Wabash Avenue.

"Why be Concerned?"

Concerned is a neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city. Woodhaven Avenue, Garrison Boulevard, Oakfield Avenue and West Forest Park Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes located in the neighborhood are the typical attached single family “row house” styled home found throughout the city. There are a number of detached single-family homes here as well as a few commercial buildings.

Home to the WBC Community Development Corporation, Concerned has a number of places of worship including the Forest Park Community Church and Wayland Baptist Church. Public transportation via numerous bus stops along the main roads is available for those wishing to utilize mass transportation. Those residents commuting by car will appreciate the fact that the neighborhood is located between I-83 and I-695, so access to the interstate system is easy. Although there is no dedicated green space within Concerned, the Liberty Recreation Center is located off of West Forest Park Avenue, as is Liberty Elementary School for those families with small children. Restaurants and shopping options are very limited here as well, so most residents will want to venture into adjacent neighborhoods for those activities.

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 things considered you may want to take a look at Concerned and see if it is a neighborhood for you. I drive a lot with my job and like the location and easy access to the interstate system.

Residents in Windsor Hills will not find any restaurants, shopping or places of worship located here, but they can be found nearby.

The homes here are a mix of attached single-family “row homes” as well multifamily apartment buildings. There are also a number of commercial buildings located here as well.

One of the great things about Cedonia is the amount of green space. Residents enjoy Moore’s Run Park, Bucknell & Moores Park and Silverbell Park. Shopping and restaurants can be found at Cedonia Shopping Center. There are no schools within the neighborhood, but Bethlehem Christian Day School and Mount Pleasant Christian School are nearby. Residents will find a number of public bus stops along the main roads.

I am not sure of this neighborhood, although I like the ease of access to I-895/95. The biggest concern here would be the amount of noise you are going to hear from the interstate within the neighborhood. This could be a big issue for some people as I895/95 is a very busy road 24 hours a day year round. Definitely take a look especially if you are commuting any distance by car.

"Just apartments"

Perkins Homes is a neighborhood that is located in the southeast section of the city and is within walking distance of the Inner Harbor. Crab Street, East Pratt Street, South Eden Street and Bank Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here are all multifamily apartment buildings with an institutional feel to them.

Beside the apartments, there is nothing in Perkins Homes except the apartments. The nearest schools are City Spring Elementary School and Baltimore Freedom Academy along East Pratt Street. The nearest dedicated green space is two blocks away in City Springs Park. Shopping and restaurants are very limited in the immediate area around Perkins Homes, but there are more available as you begin to get three or four blocks from the neighborhood. There are a number of bus stops along the main roads for access to mass transit.

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 really do not like this neighborhood because of the institutional feel of the apartment buildings. Anyone considering moving to Perkins Homes or the immediate area should do their due diligence on the area to determine if rents here are subsidized.

"Lots of green space"

Park Circle is a neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city with lots to offer its residents.

The homes here are typically attached single-family “row homes” found in many areas of Baltimore. There are also a number of multifamily buildings here as well as commercial buildings. In general the homes here are in good condition and appear to be well maintained.

Doctor Martin Luther King Elementary School is located here along Greenspring Avenue. Although not actually in Park Circle, Kennedy Krieger High School is on the other side of Greenspring Avenue. I like the dedicated green space here including Greenspring Avenue Park, Cotwood Place Traffic Island, Towanda Playground, Cottage Avenue Park, Shirely Avenue Street Park and the nearby sprawling Druid Park. There are a number of shops and places to eat in Park Circle, but more variety will be found in other neighborhoods. As with many Baltimore neighborhoods access to mass transit is available with numerous bus stops located along the main roads. Many will like the easy access to I-83.

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.

"Is that a Truck Stop?"

Medford is a neighborhood that is located in the southeast section of the city. I-95, O’Donnell Street, South Drew Street and Cardiff Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as numerous commercial establishments including a truck stop. In addition, you will find several multifamily buildings in the neighborhood.

Car commuters will like the ease of access to I-95, from this neighborhood, however many are not going to like other aspects of Medford. There are very few options for shopping or dining. Those with children will not find a neighborhood school here nor will they find any dedicated green space. The biggest drawback to the neighborhood is the noise from the truck stop / Travel Plaza as well as I-95.

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.

Definitely spend some time in the neighborhood, especially at night, before you make a commitment on a home here. The noise from nearby I-95 is constant as is the noise from the truck stop / Travel Plaza.

"Not sure why..."

Langston Hughes is a residential neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city. Reisterstown Road, Oakmont Avenue, Litchfield Avenue and North Belvedere Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as numerous commercial buildings. Most appear to need maintenance.

Langston Hughes Elementary School is the local school in the neighborhood for those families with children. There are no parks or other dedicated green space available in Langston Hughes, which could be a big negative for many. There is shopping and a limited number of restaurants along the perimeter of the neighborhood, but the variety is not great. Residents utilizing public transportation will find numerous bus stops along the main roads.

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 why I cannot get excited about this neighborhood. I think it is because of the lack of dedicated green space as well as the overall feel of the neighborhood. If you are considering this area, take a look and see if you like it.

"Great neighborhood"

Hunting Ridge is a very nice residential neighborhood that is adjacent to Leakin Park. Edmondson Avenue, Cooks Lane, North Franklintown Road and Swn Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as a large number of single-family detached homes. Most appear to be relatively well maintained.

This neighborhood has lots to offer! Shopping and restaurants are available in the Edmondson Village Shopping Center along Edmondson Road. Residents with children will appreciate having the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School here as well as the nearby Saint William of York School and Rognel Heights Elementary Middle School. I love green space and Leakin Park is a great place to walk and explore. There are several places of worship in the neighborhood as well. One negative is that public transportation is not available.

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 really like this neighborhood because it does many things well. I like the mixture of homes, close by shopping, the schools and especially the park. This neighborhood should definitely be on anyone’s short list!

"How much is that land worth?"

Pimlico Good Neighbors is a residential neighborhood that also includes the Pimlico horse track. West Northern Parkway, park Heights Avenue, West Belvedere Avenue and Pimlico Road generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as single-family detached homes. Most appear to be relatively well maintained.

As you can imagine the track has been the main focus of the neighborhood over the years. Residents living here will find little else in the way of neighborhood amenities. Although there are a few stores and restaurants along Park Heights Avenue, the selection is limited. There are no schools in the neighborhood, so residents will need to send their children to schools in other neighborhoods. Dedicated green space can be found at Pimilco Good Neighbor Park. As interest in horse racing declines,I am sure that developers are attracted to the land that holds the track and associated structures and parking lots. No one knows what the future will bring.

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 bullish on this neighborhood, because changes are going to happen as interest in horse racing declines and the economy improves. The land is just too valuable not to be developed.

"Too bad...."

Kresson is a mainly industrial neighborhood with a small residential component located in the southeast section of Baltimore. I-895, Erdman Avenue, Pulaski Highway, North Haven Street and East Lombard Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The few homes here are the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore. Most are not well maintained.

Shopping and restaurants are practically non-existent in Kresson. There are no schools, places of worship or any other amenity that would entice someone to move here. Industrial and commercial uses are widespread in the neighborhood due to its proximity to the dock as well as the interstate system. There are numerous sets of active train tracks all over the neighborhood as well. Even the industrial and commercial use facilities appear to be run down.

There 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.

Kresson is definitely not the place to live and I really feel for the people that are forced to live here. There is a bar in the neighborhood named “Port in the Storm” and the storm is Kresson. As for me I am going to pass on this one!

Eastwood is a neighborhood located in the southeast region of Baltimore near I-95. Eastern Avenue, Adams Place, East Baltimore Street and Quinton Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here are typically attached single-family homes found throughout Baltimore. The condition of the homes varies widely.

Commuters utilizing I-95 will appreciate the proximity to the highway for there commute to work. However, many may not like to noise levels from the road, especially at night. Another drawback to living here is the lack of schools, shopping. Places of worship and dedicated green space. Access to public transportation is available with numerous bus stops being located along Eastern Avenue.

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.

Personally I would check out the noise levels from nearby I-95 prior to making a commitment to a home here. I find the lack of other amenities in the neighborhood a deal breaker, but you make that decision for yourself.
Pros
  • 1-95 access
Cons
  • Noise from I-95

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.

"Not for me...."

Darley Park is a neighborhood located in the east region of Baltimore. Hartford Road, Holy Cross Lane and Saint Lo Drive generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here are attached “row house” type of structures in a variety of conditions as far as maintenance is concerned.

I cannot get excited about this neighborhood for a number of reasons. There are no schools, shopping, restaurants or places of worship. There is a large athletic field here, but other than that there is no dedicated green space. There are a number of vacant lots as well as a set of railroad tracks. Hartford Road has several businesses as well as a numerous bus stops, but there is nothing really here. If you are considering this neighborhood, be sure to do your due diligence before making a commitment.

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.

Personally, I am going to give this neighborhood a pass as there are many more appealing options out there.

"Lots of shopping"

Reistertown Station is a neighborhood located in the northwest region of Baltimore. West Northern Parkway, Wabash Avenue, Patterson Avenue, Crest Heights Road and Reisterstown Road generally form the borders of this neighborhood. Homes here are a mix of attached and detached single-family as well as a number of multi-family homes. There is a heavy commercial component of this neighborhood as well.

If shopping is important to you, this is the neighborhood for you! Any place that has a Home Depot is great in my eyes. In addition residents will find the Fallstaff Shopping Center, Reisterstown Road Plaza, as well as other smaller shopping areas here. The access to public transportation is a big draw of this neighborhood with the Reisterstown Plaza Metro Station being located here as well as numerous bus stops. Where there is shopping there are also restaurants and lots of them. Children’s Guild Day School is the only school located here.

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 do like this neighborhood because when I get home on the weekend, I do not like to need to travel a long distance to go to the store of get something to eat. If that is important to you take a look. The only downside to living here is the lack of dedicated green space.

Dedicated green space can be found at the Curtis Bay Park where residents can also enjoy the attached Curtis Bay Recreation Center. Thee is a very large parcel of land in the neighborhood and residents considering Curtis Bay should investigate what this is zoned for. The only school located in Curtis Bay is the Benjamin Franklin High School. There are no places of worship here and shopping options are limited. Although there are a number of bars located in the neighborhood that serve food, many will want to venture into other areas for more dining options.

"Industrial Uses Only"

Wagner’s Point is a neighborhood located in the south region of Baltimore. I-895, Chesapeake Avenue, East Patapsco Avenue and Curtis Bay generally form the borders of this industrial neighborhood. The neighborhood is a combination of industrial and commercial uses including a number of docks. This must have been a beautiful area at one time before the area was industrialized.

There are no homes, schools, churches, restaurants or shopping centers located within the neighborhood. Dedicated green space does not exist although you will find nice view of the water along the shoreline. One of the things that you will notice here are the very large number of petroleum tanks, as well as the odors from the Patepsco Waster Water Treatment plant. There is a large rail complex here that is used to transport coal to awaiting barges and ships. If you drive an import car, your automobile may have been unloaded from the ship and staged here before being shipped to your dealer.

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.

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.

This neighborhood has lots to offer, but I would look into the noise from the scarp yard and associated train tracks first.

"Check out the noise and make sure you can live with it!"

SBIC is a neighborhood located in the south region of Baltimore. Race Street, East Ostend Street, Light Street and I-95 generally form the borders of the neighborhood. A mixture of residential and commercial building will be found here. Homes here are typically the attached single-family row style homes found throughout Baltimore.

Home to a number of places of worship, this is not a great neighborhood for many. Although there are not any schools within the neighborhood, residents with children will find the South Baltimore Learning Center on the other side of East Ostend Avenue handy. Numerous neighborhood style restaurants are scattered throughout SBIC. Shopping is limited however so many will need to venture out into adjacent neighborhoods. Dedicated green space does not exist, although Riverside Park is nearby. Residents will find numerous bus stops located along the main streets.

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 going to pass on this neighborhood mainly due to the proximity of I-95 and the numerous railroad tracks in the area. If I were considering moving here, I would visit during different times of the day and night to see if I could live with the noise.

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.

"Worth a visit......"

Oaklee is a neighborhood located in the southwest region of Baltimore.

Homes here are typically the attached single-family row style homes found throughout Baltimore, as well as numerous detached single-family homes and multifamily apartments.

Overall the neighborhood is nice, but lacks many of the amenities that city residents tend to take for granted. Restaurants are limited to fast food and take out establishments. Places of worship, shopping and dedicated green space is not available in Oaklee, but is available within the adjacent neighborhoods. Residents do have numerous bus stops along the main roads.

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.

Although the neighborhood does not have many of the amenities that I like in neighborhoods, it does not mean that others will not like it. Definitely take a drive thru Oaklee and check out. You may like it!

"Check out the commercial areas...."

Reistertown Road, West Cold Spring Road, Wabash Avenue and West Garrison Avenue generally form the borders of the neighborhood., which is a mix of residential and commercial uses. Homes here are typically the attached single-family row style homes found throughout Baltimore

One of the nice things about the neighborhood is its proximity to the West Coldspring Metro Station, although some may be disturbed by the noise from the trains. Dedicated green space is found at Jack Paulsen Park, located off of Reistertown Road. The Baltimore Junior Academy is the only school located in Lucille Park. Residents will find several places of worship, but will not find many places to shop. Although there are several restaurants here, most are geared towards fast food or carryout.

Madison Park is a neighborhood in the central region of the city and is defined by West North Avenue, Eutaw Place, Dolphin Street, North Howard Street, North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Madison Avenue, McCulloh Street, Laurens Street and Division Street. The neighborhood has a mix of residential, commercial and educational and government uses. Homes here are typically attached single- family row homes, which are found in many parts of Baltimore as well as a number of multifamily apartment buildings.

One of the great things about this neighborhood is the public transportation options available including both bus stops as well as several metro stations, which are located either inside the neighborhood or directly adjacent to it. Those commuting to work in a car will like the proximately to the Jones Falls Expressway (I-83). The easy of commuting has a downside however as there is a influx of workers into the neighborhood every day to work as the numerous government facilities, including the Air national Guard building. There are a number of schools located here including Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School, Renaissance Academy and the Baltimore School of the Bible. The United Baptist College is also located here. Madison Park has a number of dedicated green space areas including Eutaw Place Madison Park, Saint Katherine’s Park and Reverend Quille Park. Residents will find numerous places of worship here, but will struggle with shopping and dining options.

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 cannot get excited about this neighborhood, mainly because of the lack of shopping and dining options, but check it out. It may be a good fit.

Four By Four is a neighborhood in the northeast region of the city and is defined by Sinclair Lane, North Gay Street, Cliftmont Avenue and Edison Highway. The neighborhood has a good mix of residential, commercial and educational uses. Homes here are typically attached single- family row homes, which are found in many parts of Baltimore as well as multifamily apartment buildings.

The Catholic High School of Baltimore is the only school located in Four By Four. Residents do not have any dedicated green space other that their own yards, but can enjoy the nearby Clifton Park. In addition, you will not find any public transportation options here. There are no places of worship with in the neighborhood. There is a set of railroad tracks along Sinclair Lane. Although there is a tree buffer along the tracks, residents should determine for themselves if the noise level is acceptable. On a positive note there is a large shopping center within the neighborhood, offering residents a number of shopping options. Restaurants are very limited, so residents will want to venture out to other neighborhoods for other options.

"Go Ravens!"

Although listed as a neighborhood, the Stadium area is not a traditional neighborhood as there are no traditional homes located here. However, this the home of the Baltimore Ravens professional football team and the Baltimore Orioles professional baseball teams. Both team have a long history in Baltimore and have rebid fans in the city and around the country. The borders of the neighborhood are formed by I-395, Stockholm Street, the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, and W. Camden Street.

In addition to the M&T Bank Stadium and Orioles stadiums there is a small commercial area along I-395, lots of flyover on and off ramps for I-395, train tracks and lots of parking lots. Public transportation is excellent with the Camden Marc station being located here as well as stations for the city’s public transportation system. Access to I-395 is excellent from the stadium area. There are no schools, homes or dedicated green space in the neighborhood. Restaurants and shopping is limited to the stadiums on game day. Many visitors will spend time at the Inner Harbor before or after watching a game. The Inner Harbor and Stadium Area neighborhoods complement each other very well.

Crime is relatively limited and is primarily limited to property type of crimes on game days. As always check the most recent crime statistics and make an informed decision as to the crime risk in any neighborhood.

"Not for everyone"

The Brooklyn neighborhood is located in the south region of the city, is a tough place to live and is not for everyone. The boundaries of the neighborhood are defined by Frankfurst Avenue, Interstate 895, W. Meadow Road, Ruth Street, Duane Avenue, 6th Avenue, W. By Avenue, E. Patapsco Avenue and Shell Road. The homes located in the neighborhood are a mix of single-family homes as well as attached row style homes in average to poor repair. There is a commercial industrial section of the neighborhood as well as a large rail yard. Interstate 895 also passes thru the neighborhood.

Residents have numerous restaurants in the neighborhood, primarily located along E. Patapsco Avenue. Shopping options are somewhat limited, although there is a Rite-Aid Pharmacy within Brooklyn. Bay Brook Elementary School and Benjamin Franklin High School are located here for those families with children. Residents will find Enoch Pratt Library. Green space is available for residents in Garrett Park, where Brooklyn O’Malley Pal Center can be found. Several churches are also located throughout the neighborhood. Public transportation is available with numerous bus stops located in the neighborhood. Despite some re-development in the neighborhood, Brooklyn will not appeal to many. Potential residents may be put off by the large industrial component as well as I-895 passing through the neighborhood.

Despite a large Police, presence, crimes against people and property are common in Brooklyn. As always, check recent crime statistics to make an informed decision on any neighborhood you are considering living in or visiting. I think I am going to give this neighborhood a pass.
