Does anyone know well about these areas???
Especially houses on Tyson st. are reallly really small and I think they are some what over-priced. I'm interested in purchasing a home in one of these area.
Please advise!

One of the nicest blocks in Baltimore is Tyson Street off of Read. It's a great block with a lot of character. I always wanted to own a home on that block. Mind telling which home is for sale?

Actually there are three on sale and they are all in 800 block.
I have been to two of them but they are really really really small.
I think I need to make one room into a closet...

I love Ednor Gardens. Bigger, newer rowhomes than in the other areas you mentioned.

Yep. Curiosity got the best of me and I looked them up. None of them are on the block I want. I do think that one with the private yard is a keeper though. The steep stairs on the other one is a turn off: dogs would have a difficult time making it up them.

Default @ jonjj

Which one is the keeper?
All of them have a very small back yard I believe.

Default Comparison shopping

Tyson Street was one of Baltimore's early restoration areas, a funky block that ended with the city's only well-known gay bar (Leon's, may have changed its name). With The Brexton having been redone, the area is improving. It's convenient, with Metro and light-rail stops within walking distance. UB, Meyerhoff, MICA nearby. Tons of restaurants plus City Cafe, a great meeting place regardless of your preference.
Barre Circle has old rowhouse and new, overpriced "townhouses." Good if you need to commute to the D.C. Beltway area or have a job at the University of Maryland professional schools downtown. Rough around the edges.
Ednor Gardens/Lakeside. If there were any justice in the world, this would be one of the most desirable residential areas. Affordble. Absolutely stunning at azalea time, A 10-minute car commute mostly along one street to the Johns Hopkins Medical institutions in East Baltimore. Ditto for JHU Homewod.
In summary, each is a good choice. It's up to you. You have to determine where you want to live and what your tolerance level is.
In terms of food shopping, you will need a car in each instance. Ednor Gardens has more choices of supermarkets within a 10-minute drive, although the new Harris Tweeter in Locust Point, combined with Shoppers, may improve Barre Circle's situation.

I liked the privacy of the back courtyard for this one. Also, the fireplaces seemed cool. My dogs would have a problem with the spiral staircase though.

Shopping for groceries is within close distance for Tyson Street. There is the SuperFresh on Charles along with Lexington Market plus the Eddies of Mt. Vernon. So having a car would be unnecessary.
