Downtown

Though Downtown encompasses a number of core Baltimore neighborhoods, the Downtown neighborhood is distinctly bound by Franklin Street and Lombard Street to the north and south, respectively, President Street to the east and Paca and Greene Streets to the west. As Baltimore's Central Business District, the area is home to many offices, commercial buildings and restaurants that cater to a heavy lunch crowd. More recently, the neighborhood has seen a number of new apartment developments catering to the urban professional that enjoys living in close proximity to work.
