According to LiveBaltimore.com “Abell is a quiet, residential community in North Baltimore best known for its vibrant “Painted Lady” rowhouses. The neighborhood is named in honor of Baltimore Sun founder A.S. Abell. Residents enjoy shopping the nearby 32nd Street Farmers Market, walking to the family friendly Peabody Heights Brewery and participating in annual community events like the Abell Community Street Fair in September, a Memorial Day Picnic and the New Year’s Eve Progressive Dinner, a night where neighbors move from house to house for each course of the night’s meal. The dinner culminates in a champagne toast at the final home of the night.”
