I actually recently moved into a new building in the Mt. Vernon in midtown Baltimore. I took these pics while I was checking out the neighborhood before I moved in.

My building.

waj0527. Wow. Your neighborhood is just beautiful. Wish I could say more but I am in a lost for words. What is the cost of living around those parts?

Thanks. Its a great neighborhood. Its a very trendy alternative to living in the more expensive downtown Baltimore or waterfront district. It has great access to Baltimore's Light Rail and Metro systems. Its close to lots to the University of Baltimore, Johns Hopkins, the University of Maryland, and Baltimore International College. Its close to several museums and galleries and resturants and retailers. Parking, like in any other urban neighborhood is at a premium.

The neighborhood is relatively diverse in terms of living options. You can get anything from a pretty crappy studio to trendy 2-bedroom to an elegant single family home in Mt. Vernon. WHat I consider to be a pretty nice two bedroom apartment will run you about $1200-$1400 a month. Studios and one bedrroms can be found cheaper. My friend actually rents a 4 bedroom brownstown further away from Mt. Vernon Square for $2800 per month. Buying a house or a condo/apartment gets pretty pricey though. Units in the co-op building a few blocks away start at $1-1.5 million. The single family homes can go for more than that depending on what you're looking for.
