Geography

Its southern geographic location from the city's center, bounded by the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River to the north, the river's main channel to the east, and railroad tracks, including the tracks of the Baltimore Light Rail system, to the west and Baltimore Highlands, Maryland to the south. Cherry Hill is home to Baltimores largest public housing project Cherry Hill Homes with over 1000 units, and several other low-income apartments throughout the community.

In 2014, Baltimore City Public Schools announced that Maritime Industries Academy, a high school in northeast Baltimore, is moving to Cherry Hill. This is done in part to revamp the Herring Run recreational center in Frankford, the school's neighborhood. Most Cherry Hill residents agree with the decision to move the high school to the area, as they need a high school for teenage residents to attend, so they can avoid long transportation hours. The high school moving takes action for the start of the 2015-2016 school year.

Transportation

Route 29 bus at the Cherry Hill Light Rail Station.

The only roads leading in or out of the neighborhood are Hanover Street, Potee Street, Cherry Hill Road and Waterview Avenue. The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) serves the highly populated area with the need for public transportation by bus routes 27, 29 (Cherry Hill Circulator), and 51, and the already noted Baltimore Light Rail at the Cherry Hill light rail stop located on the northwest edge of the neighborhood.

History

The Cherry Hill neighborhood was developed fairly recently in Baltimore's history. Like Armistead Gardens the community was founded as a home for African-American veterans returning from both World War II and the Korean War. Cherry Hill was originally planned to be located in the area now known as "Armistead Gardens", the first section of public housing was built in 1946... .[1]

Economy

Harbor Hospital is based in the eastern edge of the neighborhood.

Cherry Hill is also home to DeBaufre Bakeries, the maker of local icon Berger Cookies.
