Update 16 - Highland Neighborhood and Brittany River Industry
This update we will move a little north to view the area between Baltimore Ave and Brittany River. Heavy industry occupies the area between Highland Ave (D10) and Brittany River. South of W Highland Ave, a low density residential neighborhood flourishes. This neighborhood is called Highland Neighborhood and is situated between S Harrison Rd, W Highland Ave (D10), W Baltimore Ave, and S 24th St (D230). D15 runs through the east end of the neighborhood along S 6th St and then S 8th St. The neighborhood is serviced primarily by the Wenzel Transit Authority Bus System, but the Wenzel Transit Authority Metro (WTAM) also runs along the southern edge of the neighborhood along Baltimore Ave.
Beautifully lit power plants on the south bank of the Brittany River.
We start our tour of Highland Neighborhood on the northwestern edge. This is North Division High School.
Allen Field School (Kindergarten - 5th Grade)
Some cleaner industry within the neighborhood.
George Mason Elementary School (Kindergarten - 5th Grade) and Hanover Street Methodist Church.
Hanover German Immersion School. All classes are taught exclusively in German and all students are required to speak only in German.
Mason Park. I forgot to include pictures of the origins of the park. Maybe I will make that a separate update.
Highland Neighborhood police and fire departments.
Now a look at the industry north of Highland Ave. This factory is located at 1450 W Cutler St (where S 14th St would pass through). Opposite the factory are some water treatment vats.
W Warren Ave sits at a little higher elevation that the factory along the rail.
More manufacturing. A small neighborhood which houses factory workers sits in the middle of much of these factories.
Overview of the area.
A nice sunset shot of a factory. I took this at the same time I took the title picture on the east side of S Harrison Rd.
Mosaic including heavy industry and the eastern end of Highland Neighborhood. We can see Calvert Middle School, Oakwood Baptist Church, and the edge of Baltimore High School's campus in the lower half of the picture.
Overview of the heavy industry straddling D15.
The aforementioned Baltimore High School.
I hope you enjoyed these views of southwestern Martin. What do you think? Too many pictures? What would you like to see? The next update will either move south and view Applewood Neighborhood (W Baltimore Ave - W Lucas Rd - S 8th St - S 16th St) or I'll show you the northeast neighborhoods I've been working on. So much to show and the city is still young and "small" 275,000 residents or so.
