Another neighborhood I'd like to add is Morrell Park. The neighborhood is not bad and pretty stable currently, but I'd love to see Washington BLVD really spruced up around there, and currently looks like crap. It is a nice mix of Rowhomes and single family, and there is some incredible views from up there. It would be nice to see areas with nice single family options in South Baltimore, Morrell Park could be one of those places.

That is a good one.. Its also close to I-95..Isnt "Lakeside" part of Morrel Park.. though I have never seen the Lake that they are referring to. All of that area on down to Landsdowne and Arbutus has good housing stock and location..It just seems to need a little sprucing up though its not necessarily run down..

I know it's a bump to a three year old thread but...gas tax was approved years ago, and not only do potholes still abound (I'll give the city some credit, usually a couple of calls do bring in a patch crew fairly rapidly) but now we have SINK Holes popping up with increasing regularity.
More and higher city/state taxes seem to just disappear away from from Baltimore's crumbling infrastructure
I know these are ancient quasi-public/quasi-private issues, but can't the City and BGE work something out?

This is an old thread but it's such a great question, I can't resist!

Any of those little pockets of hell that exist within walking distance of the business center downtown or the harbor. It just makes zero sense to have such valuable real estate be so crappy.

Remington. Easily. And I'd put an amazing public school there.

Everything to the north and west of Hopkins' medical campus.

Park Heights! ditto Druid Hill (? The area between the park and Mondawin Mall). Such beautiful housing stock! Drives me nuts!

That's enough for now.

Perhaps the changes will come with the additional casino revenue?

If the Red Line gets built and MARC service is improved (with more frequent trains) on the Penn Line, I could see the neighborhoods around the West Baltimore and the proposed Bayview MARC station become more gentrified over time.
