I was blessed to show my clients some homes in the south Baltimore neighborhood Locust Point this week and of course I want to share the it with you as well. Locust Point is one of the many neighborhoods that make up Baltimore City and its what I like to call “A sum of Baltimore City”. It is a close knit neighborhood complete with nice outdoor parks, nightlife, beautiful attractions, local owned shops, dinning options and history. While not as saturated as it once was with factories, the presence of Domino Sugar and two marine terminals still tells its’ story of being home to Baltimores industrial infrastructure. Locust Point was the third largest entry point for immigrants (trailing closely behind Ellis Island and the Port of Philadelphia).
Today the neighborhood is home to the Baltimore Museum of Industry, Fort Mchenry (Birthplace of the national anthem – “over the ramparts we watched”…yep, those ramparts are still there) and Latrobe Park. The neighborhood’s restaurants and bars include Peppa Flame, City Limits Sports Bar, 1157 Bar and Kitchen, Diamondback Brewing Company, Hull Street Blues Cafe, Serenity Wine Cafe Southeastern Coffee Roastery, and the Ice Queens snowball shop. Baltimore Water Taxi stop, Under Armour Headquarters, South Locust Point Cruise Terminal, SoBo Doggie Daycare and Spa and Francis Scott Key Elementary and Middle Grades School are also in the neighborhood.
