Baltimore East Neighborhoods

Downtown East
Downtown East has Baltimore’s oldest neighborhoods (Fell’s Point) and its newest (Harbor East). Along the water you’ll find excellent retail including some pretty big name brands, and dining nestled among gleaming office and apartment towers. Move up the hill and you’re at the Johns Hopkins medical campus. In between are a variety of housing choices with price points and amenities to fit every lifestyle.

Harbor East


Canton is one of those unique Baltimore neighborhoods with a frenetic population. Families who have lived and worked in the area for generations pick crabs next to frat bro’s, wistful for their college days. Families play in Patterson Park along with hard-core athletes sweating through Cross Fit or heading to the cloud-like Mimi Dipietro skate rink for hockey practice. Canton’s proximity to I-95, the Hopkins Medical Campus, and the waterfront make it accessible to every walk of life.

Fell's Point/Upper Fell's

Is there anything more quaint than cobblestone? There’s always the chance you’ll break a heel but the connection to history coupled with a stage for some serious Instagramming is worth it. Fells Point (or “Fells” if you’re into brevity) is home to countless boutiques, restaurants, and shops. The tiny, colorful row homes are tucked into tree-lined side streets, and residents and visitors alike spend warm days eating gelato along the waterfront. It’s almost too perfect…

  • Wander this cobblestone street and take in harbor views as you visit the countless shops and bistros along the way. More >>
  • Fells Point knows how to throw a party. More >>

Harbor East

Mini-Manhattan. Dubai. Call it what you will, but when Harbor East (quite literally) popped up out of nowhere, Baltimore got some serious style cred. The high-end shops are rivaled only by the high-end housing. The Four Season looms over the neighborhood, casting a chic shadow on the wide streets and gorgeous people. In a town that prides itself on being the underdog, Harbor East should stick out like a sore thumb, but instead, it’s lifted the City and made us proud.

  • There is always something fabulous to do in Harbor East. More >>
  • Harbor East has some of the city’s best shopping, with South Moon Under, J. Crew, and Anthropologie glittering its streets. More >>
  • The thriving real estate market is full of gorgeous condos with unbelievable amenities and views. More >>

Hopkins Medical Campus

First of all, it’s Johns Hopkins. This internationally renowned medical institution does not have a typo in its masthead. Second of all, having the Hopkins Medical Campus in Baltimore sometimes feels surreal. Though this neighborhood is comprised mostly of weary hospital employees and visitors, there’s a buzz in the air. Amazing things happen on the campus every day, and if you’re in Baltimore, you have a front row seat. How cool is that.

  • It’s impossible to not feel inspired when you’re so close to a world-class medical institution. Baltimoreans are very proud that Hopkins (and its brilliant doctors) calls our City home. More >>
  • Stop by the Northeast Market for an authentic Baltimore experience and meal. More >>
  • The Hopkins Medical Campus is highly accessible from other parts of the city. More >>

Little Italy

We feel like we don’t really need to sell you too hard on this one. The streets smell of garlic and complex carbs; the people are nice as hell; they host an outdoor film series in the summer, where Italian classics dance on the walls of row homes, and it couldn’t be more centrally located.

  • Friday nights in Little Italy are movie nights with a great selection of films played on the wall of Ciao Bella restaurant. More >>
  • No trip to Little Italy is complete without something sweet from Vaccaro’s. We recommend the cannoli. More >>

  • Located off Orleans Street just east of the Jones Falls Expressway, Old Town has most recently been looked at by city planners as an area that is prime for redevelopment. While there are many residents that live there, the area has most recently made headlines as a new location for The Food Truck Gathering at Old Town Mall. More >>
