Oakenshawe in North Baltimore is one of Baltimore City's earliest streetcar suburbs. The neighborhood offers single-family detached and semi-detached Georgian Revival and Victorian homes laid out like English garden suburbs. Residents enjoy the cozy, human-scale of the streets, leafy parkways and small, lush yards. Friendly, active neighbors come together for an annual terrace party, a Halloween parade for children, spring cleanups and a greening committee.
