What I love most about my neighborhood
I love that in only a year, I feel like this was the place I was always meant to be. My partner and I live and work in Baltimore and own our own home. Our neighbors come over once a week and we have made friends (that are like family) across the city. We volunteer with and donate to BARCS, Citizens of Pigtown, Southwest Partnership, etc. We also try to go to farmers' markets, festivals, and celebrations in our neighborhood and across the city. Our house is decorated with our 21230 and Maryland pride, thanks to local merchants! We just love it here!
What brought me here
I lived in Southern Maryland and my partner lived in Columbia, MD. We both received jobs in Baltimore - I served as an education policy fellow with Strong Schools Maryland and MD State Senator Bill Ferguson and he is a lawyer with Disability Rights Maryland. We knew we wanted to be in the city and were excited to buy a home and start our lives together. I first saw a listing for a home in Pigtown and I kept coming back weekend after weekend until I finally pulled the trigger on our home! We are so excited to be together in Baltimore! We also wanted our dog to have a yard and love all the parks, daycares, and other dogs around!
