About Barclay

Located between Penn Station and Johns Hopkins University, Barclay is a neighborhood located right in the middle of the action. Community groups and activists have worked long and hard over the last few years to upgrade the neighborhood in terms of the housing opportunities available. In addition, they worked to create several gardens that adults can enjoy and green spaces and playgrounds where residents can let their children play. Large scale efforts are continuing to remake the neighborhood as it keeps an eye on the future without losing its connection to Baltimore history.

Around Barclay

New streets and regions are being redeveloped all the time in Barclay so keep an eye on where the money is flowing and consider making an investment in your housing future.

Being in midtown is an advantage when it comes to restaurants. Not only are residents and tourists close to many restaurant choices, they are also in the immediate vicinity of one of Baltimore's great institutions: The Prime Rib on Calvert Street, considered one of the 50 great restaurants in the Baltimore area. The neighborhood also offers cafes, pizza places and bistros for quick sandwiches or a snack. Your cuisine choices are plenty, with Chinese, Ethiopian and even African-Portuguese fare available.

Expect to see your neighbors out and about, shopping at local stores, enjoying the many local green spaces, as well as taking in some culture at a local art or music venue.

Of course, there are the museums, shopping, and sports stadiums close by, too, easily reachable by public transportation from the neighborhood. Wyman Park Dell is a landmark in Baltimore and an attractive place to hold events. King and Kennedy Park is another green space that provides a public playground.
