GENERAL INFORMATION


LOCATION:

The Riverside Neighborhood is located immediately southeast of Historic Federal Hill, and is often referred to as Federal Hill. The area is among the most popular and high demand in Baltimore City as a result of the vast amount of entertainment and access the location affords. The Baltimore Stadium Complex, Inner Harbor, Fort McHenry National Park and numerous other attractions are all within walking distance. Restaurants, bars and shopping are all very proximate, with many options just steps from the front door. Access to I-95 is easy via 3 different exits, including I-395, and I-83 is less than a mile away via Light Street. Public transportation is very good, with Light Rail and MARC service at Camden Yards, bus service on both Light Street and Fort Avenue, and the new Baltimore City Circulator which is only 2 blocks away.  Within a two block walk are Riverside Park, the Inner Harbor and the Federal Hill commercial center.
