Significant tree canopy and green open spaces scattered throughout the neighborhood help preserve Better Waverly's legacy of meadows, pastures, streams and woodlands way uphill of the port city where wealthy merchants came to escape the heat.
Summer vacationers and shopkeepers added to the housing stock along old York Toll Road, which became a Victorian Village with its own Town Hall, now the North Side Bar & Grill.
Mass transit paved the way for folks of modest means to move into red brick homes with green painted tile roofs built a century ago to the east of commercial establishments that now make up Waverly Main Street along Greenmount Avenue and its many side streets.
The newest and tallest housing - there are no high rises in Waverly - belongs to Stadium Place affordable senior citizen retirement community on the site of old Memorial Stadium where for close to fifty years sports fans came to cheer on the World Champion Colts and Orioles, giving 33rd Street a nostalgic magic ring. Next door to the new housing in front of the large open field where our teams played ball is the first new city “state of the art” YMCA in sixty years. In front of the family sports center, residents come out every fall to cheer on Baltimore Marathon runners at Mile 22 a/k/a The Eddie Murray Mile!
It's north central location, mass transit service hub and close proximity to many city and county amenities make Better Waverly a convenient and popular place to live.
