Dining out --Within the community, there are several options, including gourmet sandwiches, pizza and Irish fare, but perhaps what the neighborhood is most associated with are the growing number of Hispanic and Latino restaurants that line Broadway and cross into Upper Fells Point. One of the favorite hotspots is Arcos Restaurant.
Nightlife --Residents are only a short walk to the bars and restaurants in Fells Point, or those in downtown Baltimore.
Parks and recreation --The neighborhood is within walking distance of Patterson Park, but residents are also working to promote their own City Springs Park and Betty Hyatt Park. They recently received funding to improve City Springs Park, which offers a lacrosse and soccer field, a baseball/softball diamond, a neighborhood garden project and city swimming pool.
