Sorry, we couldn't find a neighborhood at your current location.
What I love most about Baltimore is my neighborhood Bolton Hill. My husband and I renovated a historic house here and along the way have made life-long friends. We have received so much from our neighbors and community and do our best to give back and return the goodwill. We volunteer with organizations making a difference in 21217 and host Stoopscape - an epic stoop party during Artscape weekend for our neighbors and whoever stops by to stoop with us.
I grew up in Detroit but spent my summers in Baltimore visiting family. I rediscovered the city as an adult when I relocated here for a job. I've traveled all over the world and haven't found the mix of charm, coolness, fun and energy that Baltimore has. My husband and I found the perfect home in Bolton Hill and it is always full of visiting family and people we've met and told "You must come to Baltimore for a visit". They always come and are impressed with the diversity of people, architecture, food and art scene.
Baltimore has amazing strengths and stunning architecture. Forest Park is a prime example of this statement. This neighborhood is populated by an eclectic working class community that stands committed to beautifying their homes' original woodwork by making modern improvements. A walk through Forest Park will show you brilliant landscapes and expose you to diverse cultures.
I war born in this great American city.
Locust Point is a great neighborhood where "interesting is easy!"
Kids are in college so we wanted to downsize and experience the conveniences of living closer to the city.
I love the sense of community -- whether it be the camaraderie at a PTO meeting, stoop sitting with neighbors on a mild weather night (spring, summer and fall), block parties, etc. -- we look out for each other and each other's kids.
I landed my first job in Baltimore City after college (i both grew up and attended college out of state), and have never left.
I love being a part of a community. I love the architecture of the various neighborhoods.
I grew up in the county, but I always knew I belonged in the city.
My neighborhood! Evergreen Lawn has a great collection of large, 3- to 4-bedroom historic row houses, many complete with separate front porches and deep backyards. The people! Evergreen Lawn has a few residents who have been in the neighborhood for more than 50 years. These folks have real pride in the neighborhood and a deep sense of community.
I moved to Baltimore from Northern Virginia more than 10 years ago. I was of search of two key things: cheap real estate (under the $100,000 mark) and an easy commute to my then job in Washington, D.C. I found both!
The friendliness of its people and its amazing historic architecture
I love Baltimore because it's a diverse city with a great culture and history.
The affordability of the homes. I am a first time home buyer. I love that i pay less on my mortgage than I had ever paid in rent.
I love the Diversity of the people in the City.There are opportunities for business .I work with Baltimore City Public Schools and that connects me to many families and I feel fulfilled as I serve them.
I came here to visit a friend and I fell in love with this place. Later I got jobs and then settled here.
I like the diversity, and the history of the city. I also like the institutions of the city, such as the Enoch Pratt Library, the Johns Hopkins University, and Penn Station.
I moved to Baltimore for work, and decided to stay because I enjoy the city.
The size and scale of the City with the diversity of all the neighborhoods. It offers a great lifestyle experience with great proximity to larger Cities, beaches, and mountains.
A job offer initially brought us to Baltimore and we chose to stay and put down some roots!
Opportunity to live walkable in a walkable community.
Reasonably sized, lack of pretension, artistic inclination.
I love how "Smalltimore" is a very real concept. I'm always running in to people that I haven't seen in forever as well as people that I see all the time. It's also great meeting so many different kinds of people, all living in the same area. Art, history, science, and sports are all a huge party of Baltimore and that's what has kept me here so long.
I've lived in and around Baltimore my entire life but just moved to the city in July of 2013. Before actually living in the city, I lived in Ellicott City, Towson, and Parkville but I would come to Canton almost every weekend to visit friends.
We love Baltimore first and foremost for the people -- our neighbors and friends here are friendly, down-to-earth, and often as committed to city living as we are. We also appreciate the beauty of the unique architecture , the strong sense of community among people who have lived here for generations and have deep connections to the city's history, as well as the sense of connectedness to we feel to the whole city -- this really is "Smalltimore."
My husband and I chose to move to Baltimore after a short stint in DC because we saw the potential for investing in the community and for creating life-long friendships with like-minded people. We wanted to be part of the great things that are happening here and to be able to take advantage of the many wonderful amenities the city offers to families with children.
I like our quirky neighborhoods, our independent restaurants, the diversity and beautiful historic homes. It is proud without being pretentious. Our neighborhood of Reservoir Hill is such a gem. People from completely different backgrounds and ages get together frequently to celebrate and to work to improve the area. The homes are beautiful and historic and the whole neighborhood is consistently improving . I don't just feel I've arrived at home when I step into my house - I feel I'm at home when I turn onto my street.
My wife and I came for graduate school and loved the city so much we never left.
It is hard to list one thing, so I will compromise and list two: the people and activities. You can never be bored in the city. There are many free and pay activities, it is hard to plan any day of the week because of all the choices. And to add to that, I know so many of my neighbors and they welcome me into their homes and lives like I'm family.
I lived in the Howard County suburbs and had a friend that moved to Baltimore. She did fun things with her neighbors like go to free concerts in the neighborhood and I thought about how I didn't even know my neighbors and I had lived there for 10 years.
The vast majority of communities with their individual personalities, restaurants, as well as events.
Thought I would never leave New York. Went there a few months ago for a job interview and realized Baltimore is where I would rather be.
