Hey everyone. My wife and I (both 30 years old) are relocating to Baltimore with in the next year or so. We currently live right outside NYC in NJ. There is a good chance that my wife may land a job in Baltimore and being that I work for a federal agency, I can transfer to the DC office. I've been to Baltimore a bunch of times and like the city but not totally familiar with all the neighborhoods. Basically our situation is this: we are looking to move into the city, an area with a neighborhood-like feel that is walkable, pet friendly, some restaurants/bars/Stores reasonably close, and somewhat convenient to transportaiton to DC. Being from the NYC, I'm used to the hour plus commute. Also, we plan on stayin in the city for a while and we also plan on having a kid in the next couple of years. What areas would be ok for small children? Can't predict the future, but we don't really plan on packin up and jetting out to the burbs as soon as we have a kid. Any insite would be helpful and greatly appreciated. Thx.

Default City w/kids

You mention that you don't plan on packing out to the burbs with kids of school age - lots of people live in Balto. City with kids of school age (I think it's a fantastic place to raise kids) but a lot of these same people make the choice to send their kids to one of the many independent/private schools in Baltimore...just so you're prepared. We made the move down from Boston with a family and have been delighted. PM me if you need some perspective on neighborhoods, schools etc.

Federal Hill or Ridgeley's Delight are walking distance to the MARC train to DC. Both are very dog friendly. Fed Hill is more $$$.

And you can afford private school? If not, I would suggest neighborhoods in North Baltimore which have better schools and are more family-friendly.
