Berea is a neighborhood in the East District of Baltimore. Its boundaries are the south side of Sinclair Lane, the east side of Milton Avenue, the west side of Edison Highway, and the north side of Biddle Street. Berea lies between the neighborhoods of Broadway East (west) and Orangeville (east), north of the Biddle Street neighborhood and south of Four By Four.[2][1]

Though the area was once considered middle-class, it has in the last century experienced economic depression, housing abandonment, crime, and racial rioting. Its residents are largely lower income African Americans. A filming location for The Wire (TV series), a Baltimore based HBO drama, Berea is a neighborhood where Bloods gang members are concentrated.[3]
