Located in northwestern Baltimore City, Hampden is a thriving neighborhood that has become one of Baltimore´s most desirable places to live. Originally a small cluster of homes for those who worked in the flour and cotton mills, Hampden real estate has since become a very diverse community. With its close proximity to downtown, residents can benefit from the urban amenities that Baltimore has to offer while still being part of a small-town.
One of Hampden´s attractive qualities is its convenient location near Interstate 83, which allows you to effortlessly get to downtown, and Johns Hopkins University, which is within walking distance for students. Best known for its art galleries and funky shops located on 36th Street, or as locals call it, “The Avenue,” Hampden real estate is full of life and energy. One of the major events of the year is “HonFest“, where young and old, residents and tourists come together to celebrate the language and people of Baltimore with big hair, big jewelry and a big bang! Also notable of Hampden is its appearance in some of the scenes of John Waters´ 1988 version of the musical film, Hairspray, which was adapted in 2007.
A great place in which to live, work and play, Hampden real estate opportunities include a wide mix of housing. With century-old row homes, single family homes, duplexes and apartments above the retail stores of “The Avenue” that make this neighborhood one-of-a-kind.
