Northeast Baltimore

Northeast Baltimore Eight of the city's first 25 homicides this year occurred in the 17-square-mile Northeastern District, putting the district on par with the number of homicides in all of D.C., according to The Sun. Police have been unable to identify any particular reason for the surge, though some suggest that crime is being pushed north by redevelopment around Johns Hopkins Hospital.
