Description

Charles North is a small but diverse neighborhood located in the geographic heart of Baltimore City. As part of the Station North Arts & Entertainment District, the neighborhood is home to a rapidly growing artistic community which benefits from a number of tax incentives geared to promotion of the arts in this area of central Baltimore.

The neighborhood’s convenient, centralized location, as well as its arts scene and proximity to Amtrak’s Pennsylvania Station and MTA’s Light Rail have made Charles North one of Baltimore’s most promising neighborhoods in terms of commercial and residential revitalization.
