The OP has an apartment for her daughter in Little Italy and that makes more sense to me now.

Regardless of what any of us told her she had her mind made up like so many do on here. It's like they want affirmation of their own choice, not other, possibly better options.
What amuses me is people think there are CHEAP places to live in cities like Baltimore. Cities, and most large metros are not cheap! Nor have they been for decades!
Really? I got the feeling the area was quite safe to be honest, and I was around there at dusk on a Saturday. Besides, neighborhoods are so close by here, the east side of the park might as well be in Canton and the south side is so close to Upper Fells...

I was looking at houses both in Otterbein and Towson at the same time and drove through downtown and Mount Vernon on sunny Saturday/Sunday afternoons from one open house to another and it surprised me how empty Mount Vernon and downtown felt when they should be busier. Even the York Road corridor alongside Rodgers Forge and Stoneleigh had far more people walking around to the stores than Mount Vernon!

It's a real shame. Downtown Baltimore could be quite special. Perhaps it will be someday.
Yeah most downtown neighborhoods are a stone throw from more challenging areas. A few blocks north of Paterson Park..maybe around Fayette Street things change dramatically. Same for Bolton Hill once you hit North Ave or Druid Hill Ave. So that connectivity makes it easy for people to move in and out of theses area to get to or through these areas to others...I think Bolton Hill and Mt Vernon are more precariously position since there isnt much reason to be walking around in the evenings as there are less places to go (more so in Bolton) and as Mt. Vernon purges bars from its environs. Bolton Hill is close to Pennsy Ave.. which has a range of challenges though it should be the Beale St of Baltimore given its rich music and cultural history .
