We’ve always been a neighborhood of immigrants. Originally settled by immigrants from Germany, Poland and Italy, Main Street retailers now come from five continents, including Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. We’re a walkable neighborhood, too—with a Walk Score of 90—and our sidewalks are filled with runners, dog walkers and families out for a stroll.
Highlandtown is a place where you want to hang out, bring your friends, and be yourself. We’re a neighborhood filled with diverse people sharing their experiences. We invite you to be a part of our community—whether for a visit or as a place to call home.
Highlandtown is a nationally designated Main Street District and state designated Arts & Entertainment District and is supported by the dedicated volunteers of the Highlandtown Community Association, Highlandtown Business Association and many partnering organizations and groups throughout the area.
