Home improvement magazine This Old House
has chosen Locust Point
as one of the best neighborhoods in the Northeast with charming, historic old homes.
The publication chose neighborhoods that have "plenty of New England charm, plus main streets and marinas that embrace East Coast living."
Of Locust Point, the magazine says it has a "gritty feel that celebrates its industrial past." It highlights Fort McHenry and Fort Avenue, with its local bars and crab houses and says the neighborhood is "the kind of place that would make Baltimore native and avant-garde filmmaker John Waters proud."
Norwich, Conn., Middletown Del., and Castine, Maine were some of the other towns that were honored for their historic houses.
