I have lived here for 2 years now. The schools are great. The neighborhood is a bit congested. It seems that way for most of homes here. The neighbors are friendly, close to the beltway and downtown Baltimore, Glen burnie. Overall I enjoy the area I live in however, just a few blocks away, the area can look pretty rough.

It was a great little neighborhood when I bought my house, but has really gone downhill. There is a lot of litter all over the place from children and adults, and there is a lot of dumping as well. There were more home owners at one time, there is too much rental now. But it is close to some nice local galleries and stores in Highlandtown.
It's got decent living for a lower price. Not too far from Baltimore city or other popular areas like Ellicott City, Glen Burnie or Columbia. The only issue I have is with overcrowding and parking. The chance of your car being hit or side-swiped is very high in these neighborhoods.
