Why Our Residents Love Baltimore

There’s a reason why so many Sinai residents end up making Baltimore their forever home. Here, you get the best of both worlds: A major metropolitan city that offers up that one-of-a-kind “Smalltimore” lifestyle where everyone knows your name. An international center of healthcare and biotech innovation that’s also a thriving foodie and arts scene. A city that takes great pride in its heroes, but where humility (not pretension) is the prevailing spirit. Check out all the things that Charm City has to offer you.
Baltimore at Night“Though it’s often overshadowed by nearby D.C., Baltimore has a quirky character all its own. Just ask its denizens, who will tell you just how great Charm City is without engaging in a show of one-upsmanship.”
JetSetter, 2019
A City of Neighborhoods

Baltimore is truly a city of neighborhoods, which makes it easy to find a place that feels like home. Choose from over 250 charming and diverse neighborhoods—each with its own unique character, from artsy to historic, kid-friendly to nightlife-vibrant. Prefer the suburban life? There are dozens of suburban enclaves just minutes from Sinai’s campus as well.

That feeling when you know that person from that other place in Baltimore; an only-in-Baltimore coincidence. "I used to work with your new girlfriend. Smalltimore!"

It all starts at the Inner Harbor, a vibrant waterfront destination for shopping, dining, and home to the National Aquarium.
