Station North is best known as the hub of Baltimore's underground arts scene. Geographically, the Station North District consists of the Charles North, Greenmount West and Barclay communities. There is an eclectic mix of older row houses, new condominium developments, artists communes and apartment buildings. Spend a few minutes walking up or down Charles Street and it is easy to see why Rolling Stone named Baltimore "Best Scene" in 2008. In a mere five block radius, one can enjoy the latest indie movie release at the Charles Theatre, rock out at a "home-brewed" electronica dance party in The Hexagon or check out a DJ spinning tunes at one of Baltimore's dance clubs, The Depot.
