Charles Village Photo Tour

By

Situated north of downtown Baltimore, Charles Village is a neighborhood easily recognizable by its colorfully painted rowhomes. Once a "streetcar suburb," or neighborhood whose development was strongly shaped by the use of streetcar lines as a primary means of transportation, today the neighborhood is known as the home to The Baltimore Museum of Art and Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus. Of course, the area is also home to more than 14,000 residents and upwards of 700 businesses, many of them locally owned.
