Hoes Heights ZIP codes: 21211
The humorous name of this neighborhood comes from the serious endeavor of Mr. Charles Grandison Hoes, Jr., a farmer and freed slave, who purchased land in the neighborhood in the late 1800s and divided it among his children. This family-friendly legacy lasts in this tight-knit community, with children playing in the side streets on summer evenings and neighbors look after each other. Walkability is a key asset to this truly hidden neighborhood, with a shopping center at its Southern border, a wine shop within the neighborhood, and quiet streets on which to stroll. But quick access to the rest of the City is also easy from Hoes Heights with its proximity to I-83, Falls Road and Charles Street. A mix of housing styles, from wood-frame single-family homes to brick rowhomes to bungalows and duplexes adds to the character and style of the neighborhood.
