Baltimore Spotlight: Mount Vernon

Neighborhood events such as book fairs, concerts, and art festivals are held throughout the year, attracting both residents and visitors alike. Mount Vernon is also home to numerous cultural landmarks, including the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Lyric Opera House, Peabody Library, Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute, and the original Washington Monument.

Residents also enjoy multiple transportation options, including direct access to major MTA bus lines, Metro lines, Light Rail, John's Hopkins Medical Institution (JHMI) shuttle, and Zipcars.
