Ah, the big three: Canton, Federal Hill, and Fells Point

Buz is sorry for not posting enough in this blog, but I've really been busy with stuff. I did however, have another relocation tour--a young gal and her boyfriend, who basically wanted to look, pretty much, in only one of the three neighborhoods all young professionals (almost all) want when they come to Baltimore: Canton, Federal Hill, and Fell's Point.

So we took a tour of the three areas and looked at Upper Fells Point, too (though, of course, the Craigslist poster said the rental property was in "Fell's Point"--well, close, but............)

We didn't find much in Fells Point to interest her, but found out that a $2400/month place in Upper Fells Point was really much and really small and really too close to where a lot of day laborers were hanging out looking for work. The house was all brand new, never lived in and down a small alley street. And the "investor" landlord was coming from DC to show it. We/she cancelled him after taking one look at the outside and the immediate neighborhood.

Places in Canton were really small and pricey, and several were already taken by the time we called.

Federal Hill places were really dear, but if you wanted to be near.............the tailgating/barhopping action, this was it.
