Baltimore is a city of great neighborhoods with unique characteristics. One of the nation’s oldest cities, Baltimore has 72 historic districts including over 57,000 monuments, statues and other structures.
In the late 1700’s, Baltimore quickly grew to become the third largest city in America. Throughout the mid-20th century, Baltimore remained among America’s ten largest cities.
From urban row homes with water-view roof decks to Victorian porch fronts on tree-lined streets, Baltimore is nicknamed the “City of Neighborhoods.” All are unique and unlike any other city in America.
