Cute neighborhood right next to Johns Hopkins campus. Limited variety of restaurant and bars available on St Paul, but somewhat supplemented by R House in Remington. Safe within campus patrol radius, but at night outside of patrol area may feel a little sketchy. Good running in the area (esp. north of campus)

Housing is a bit expensive for the area, but expected given large student population.

Charles Village is right next to the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus. This is a great place to live if you are a JHU student and want convenient, easy access to campus. There are many little restaurants to stop by at with a variety of food. Unfortunately, it is not particularly safe, with a high number of muggings and armed robberies, but there security provided by JHU Hop Cops has overall done a great job at reducing the crime in the immediate area. There is a weekly farmer's market and several places for grocery shopping as well. There are also some nice places to walk and several close by parks which are especially nice if you have a dog. In some row houses, there are many young families and college students.
Its a very cool neighborhood to live in. It's a short bicycle to any of the local restaurants and food establishments. I have really nice neighbors who look out for each other. It feels like a true community.
