Map of Baltimore Neighborhoods
Baltimore is a patchwork of over 200 distinct neighborhoods. While most are residential neighborhoods with rich traditions of cultural and ethnic heritage that have been defined for generations there are many that have been shining standouts of the positive effects of urban renewal.
In the late 20th century Baltimore's communities surrounding the waterfront spearheaded a sweeping revitalization of neighborhoods. Signs of rehabilitation were everywhere. Workmen scaling scaffolding busily restoring brickwork hidden underneath decades old formstone were on every block. Demolition crews could be found gutting old rowhouses in order to restore them to their Victorian era splendor. New construction of town houses, condos, and downtown apartments soon followed. Old public housing projects were razed and replaced with mixed income communities that inspired new possibilities.
Returning residents led to businesses, restaurants, and shops opening their doors all over the city. Baltimoreans living in the city enjoy a fulfilling urban lifestyle chock full of culture, convenience, and comfort. Visitor's to the city typically stay within the inner harbor area, yet those who are adventurous enough to go beyond harbor place are rewarded with the same fulfilling experience as residents.
