Our street is a quiet alley street with historical significance. It was where Frederick Douglass built 5 homes that are still standing. On occasion a dressed up "Frederick Douglass" will come down with a tourist group to educate people on the significance of the street. It constantly smells like fresh bread as we are close to H&S Bakery. We are a 5-10 minute walk to Inner Harbor, Fells Point, Harbor East, and Little Italy. Downtown is a 10 minute walk away.
