We will highlight some of our best assets: easy access to the JHMI shuttle and Penn Station, recreational opportunities like Wyman Park and the 29th Street Community Center, walkable streets lined with restaurants and entertainment in Station North Arts and Entertainment District and Waverly Main Street, and wonderful homes. Led by the Executive Director of Greater Homewood Community Corp. and co-chair of the HCPI Task Force, Karen Stokes, current residents and community leaders will welcome you along the way. Join us after the shuttle tour at one of our local restaurants, The Dizz (voted best Old Bay Wings by the City Paper), where we will host a small resource fair to provide you with information on additional homeownership incentives. The majority of the tour will be by shuttle but to experience the exciting neighborhoods there will be limited walking.
