Barclay ZIP codes: 21218
The Barclay neighborhood is strategically located in the heart of Baltimore City between Penn Station and Johns Hopkins University. The Station North Arts & Entertainment District also borders this neighborhood. Barclay is a vibrant community which enjoys a rich architectural and cultural history. Over the past few years, the neighborhood has transformed itself through the hard work of strong community organizations such as the Greater Greenmount Community Association, People’s Homesteading Group and the Barclay-Midtown-Old Goucher Coalition. Barclay residents have worked together with these groups to help redevelop the area’s housing stock while also creating and maintaining gardens and green spaces for both children and adults to enjoy. These efforts have gradually helped to turn the Barclay neighborhood into a strong, diverse community. Today, the neighborhood continues to grow as several large scale projects, including the $85 million development of vacant lots and row homes by the Telesis Corporation, come to completion. The development of the area will provide more than 300 new homes for prospective residents and community amenities including the Fearless Dance Empire and an art gallery called the Tectonic Space. Other community organizations, including the Central Baltimore Partnership, have also been working with neighborhood residents to make additions to the area including attractive, welcoming pocket parks with mosaic signage made by the community.
