The landscape of West Baltimore is highlighted with communities including SandTown, Edmondson Avenue, and Walbrook JCT, among others like Whitelock City, McCulloh Homes, and Poe Homes.

Although the focus has primarily been on East and West Baltimore, South Baltimore is not without its own neighborhoods, including areas from Cherry Hill to Brooklyn. There is also a well mix of white hoods and ghettos, such as Armistead Gardens, Dundalk Ave., and a few others scattered around South Baltimore and the fringes of East Baltimore.

Dating back to the 1800s, the city became home to a variety of European immigrants—including German, Polish, Irish, Czech, and Italian populations—during the late 1800s and early 1900s, with many initially taking up residence in East Baltimore and later extending into other parts of the metropolitan area.

Today, the city’s demographic has evolved, with African Americans now representing the majority, a presence that began in small portion of East Baltimore’s neighborhoods during the late 1800s and eventually expanded by the early and mid-1900s, with West Baltimore emerging as the core of the black community.
