Baltimore Living

Best View

Baltimore Cemetery

Getting the best views of Baltimore isn’t always easy. The top floors of the city’s highest buildings would offer spectacular views, for instance, but typically aren’t places just anyone can go. Consulting a topographical map of Baltimore City reveals its highest ground elevations, but these places too may not always be easy to get to. That’s why Baltimore Cemetery—highly accessible at the far eastern end of North Avenue, where one simply drives through the arched entryway and seeks the highest ground, just a few dozen yards inside—is such a great place to see the city. From here, the foreground of the cemetery’s gravestones and monuments gives way to acres and acres of rowhouses and the renovated American Brewery Building, and in the background are downtown’s tall buildings; the newer towers of Harbor East; the Johns Hopkins medical campus; the port facilities in Canton, Dundalk, Fairfield, and Locust Point; the Francis Scott Key Bridge; and beyond. It’s a hard view to beat, and anyone can go enjoy it.
