The Upton area was intimately involved in the rioting associated with the death of Freddie Gray. While others chose to abandon the area--my brother (along with family support) decided to stay! Our entire family has become a part of the solution as opposed to the problem!

Upton is a decent neighborhood. Crimes and drug dealers are usually seen here in the afternoon and night. Although it's not the ideal place to live, rent is easy to pay and there are plenty of food markets/carry-outs
