Angie C.Little Italy
- Baltimore Resident For 8 Years
What I love most about my neighborhood
Little Italy has a fantastic location, is relatively safe, and even though the natives are very tight-knit, you can find your niche. It is going through a lot of transition now, and some tension exists between old and new, but the people and their rich history is part of the draw. I really love living in Little Italy and feel lucky to have landed here. If you have more specific questions about parking, commuting, etc., feel free to ask! And, what I love about Baltimore in general-- it’s a gritty city and friendly small town all in one, with rich history, hope, and a chance to get involved. Living in Baltimore is like going to a small school—you can join the team, you can be on the council, you can start the protest. The diversity of the inhabitants, architecture, and neighborhoods is refreshing. I feel like there’s always something going on –an improv performance, cycling event, food truck rally, museum opening, reading, sporting event, etc.-- and I don’t have to go far to join. When needed, I can leave and easily be hiking in Shenandoah or kayaking on the Chesapeake Bay with a short drive.
What brought me here
A job in Towson brought me to the area. I’ve always been attracted to unique, more walkable digs, so I looked for a place in Baltimore City.
