Berea ZIP codes: 21213
The Berea community is located in East Baltimore, situated between Broadway East and the Orangeville Industrial Area. Its borders include Milton Street, to the west, Edison Highway, to the east, Sinclair Lane, to the north, and Biddle Street, to the south. Primarily comprised of historic rowhomes, Berea offers residents a choice between large, grassy yards and low-maintenance, paved-front areas. Berea benefits a newly completed 21st Century Program school zoned for the neighborhood. Fort Worthington Elementary/Middle School was re-opened in 2017 and has turned a vacant lot across the street into a community garden for the entire neighborhood, with plots for the school and for families to grow their own food. With high rates of homeownership, the majority of the neighborhood includes well-manicured lawns, tidy porches, and abundant flower gardens. Other portions of the neighborhood are seeing broad sweeping revitalization, with many fully renovated homes coming on the market. Residents of Berea enjoy the strong sense of community; friendly and engaged neighbors; and easy access to major commuter routes, employment at Johns Hopkins' medical campus, and Downtown.
