1026 N. Iris Avenue is located in a small residential pocket within the larger Orangeville area in east Baltimore. The neighborhood is sometimes referred to in conjunction with better known neighborhoods to the south, such as Highlandtown and Bayview, or more generally as East Baltimore. The cluster of homes along Iris Avenue, Janney Street, E. Eager Street and Ashland Avenue are not well known, a feature that many of the residents and property owners in the area value. The neighborhood is a destination location that affords all of the excellent access provided by the major employers and commuter routes nearby, including Johns Hopkins Bayview (1.5 miles), Erdman Avenue (0.4 mile), Pulaski Highway (US-40, 0.5 mile), I-895 (1 mile) and I-95 (2 miles). The Orangeville Community Park is one block southeast at the corner of E. Eager and N. Janney Streets, and features a playground and ball courts.
