Zillow Advice: Neighborhoods - how is the nieborhood around Hollins Market? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-is-the-nieborhood-around-Hollins-Market/292181/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Legally, real estate agents ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-is-the-nieborhood-around-Hollins-Market/292181/ Legally, real estate agents aren't able to tell you how a neighborhood is.  If you are interested in a neighborhood you should check it out at different times of the day and night.  Visit local businesses, perhaps join in a neighborhood association meeting to meet people that live in the neighborhood.  I have spent a lot of time in this neighborhood, I've sold several homes here.  I have eaten at Rosie's and Zella's, I've shopped in the market on many occasions.  I've walked the neighborhood and talked to people in the street.  If you want to live in a neighborhood this is what I would do to check it out and decide for yourself if you like the area and if you like what  you see, here, smell etc.  Sun, 27 Jun 2010 02:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-is-the-nieborhood-around-Hollins-Market/292181/ 2010-06-27T02:12:00Z  I have lived here for ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-is-the-nieborhood-around-Hollins-Market/292181/  I have lived here for three years and I love it.  I can walk everywhere, and though there were some break-ins around here that is a problem throughout Baltimore.  I have never felt unsafe living here and neither has my wife.  My neighbors are great, and I know all of their names - something that wasn't true when I lived in more upscale neighborhoods.  Hollins Market square is booming with three new restaurants and I am very optimistic about the future of this neighborhood.  The Maryland BioPark is being built very close to here so it looks like more restaurants and upscale stores will be coming in to accommodate the thousands of employees that will work there. The only downside is that there can be problems with garbage on the ground and there are a few seedy characters around, but my neighbors all are great people and we try to deal with things together.  Overall this is a great place to live.
