In Baltimore, the neighborhood where you are born determines the condition of your housing, schools, work and built environment. It even predicts how long you will live.
In partnership with the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance (BNIA) and MICA Center for Social Design, Impact Hub Baltimore developed a data exhibit showing maps of growing and shrinking neighborhoods in Baltimore and the three key drivers of neighborhood growth — vacant properties, housing diversity, and travel time to work. During 2017, the exhibit was displayed during events and daily coworking. Charged with a goal to make neighborhood data relatable and actionable, the exhibit ultimately became a part of events with Federal Reserve and the Baltimore Office of Sustainability.
