Making the Move to Baltimore
CHOOSING A NEIGHBORHOOD
Not sure where to start in your neighborhood search? Many Hopkins Hospital employees eventually move into one of the friendly neighborhoods within a five-mile radius of East Baltimore.
This overview provides links to the Live Baltimore Web site, a convenient resource for people looking to move to Baltimore.
One of the closest neighborhoods to Johns Hopkins Hospital is cozy Butcher’s Hill, which literally abuts the medical campus. Free Hopkins shuttle-bus services and a convenient subway line make commuting to more distant neighborhoods easy.
Another popular nearby area is Fells Point, a historic maritime center with cobblestone streets that’s now the heart of Baltimore’s nightclub scene. Neighboring Canton, also on the waterfront, is a magnet for young professionals drawn to its quaint coffee shops, trendy restaurants and converted rowhouses. And for those who thrive on a typical graduate-student milieu, there’s Charles Village abutting Hopkins’ Homewood campus.
Just south of downtown lies Federal Hill, which boasts its share of nightclubs and restaurants, along with easy access to the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards, home of the Orioles and 2001 Superbowl Champion Ravens. North of downtown are the cultural centers of Mount Vernon and Bolton Hill, where stately old mansions have been transformed into distinctive apartments.
All of these neighborhoods are just 10 or 20 minutes away from the Hospital. That’s what we mean about Baltimore’s extraordinary livability.
