Madison Park ZIP codes: 21217
A small sliver situated between Bolton Hill and Upton, Madison Park includes grand historic row homes, large religious buildings, and open community spaces. A predominantly Jewish neighborhood at the turn of the century, Madison Park later became one of the city’s first black middle class areas. Notable Jewish and African-American businessmen from Madison Park were influential in the development of Baltimore’s business and industrial sectors. Much of Madison Park is within the Madison Park Historic District, which makes up both sides of four blocks of Madison Avenue near North Avenue. Earlier row homes in the area feature flat facades with ornate bracketed cornices. Later homes incorporate design elements from Second Empire, Queen Anne, and Romanesque Revival styles. The Belview-Manchester Apartments and the old Madison Avenue Temple are among the neighborhood’s significant individual buildings.
