Broadway East is a neighborhood in the East District of Baltimore. Its boundaries are the south side of North Avenue, the west side of Milton Street, the east side of Broadway, and the north side of Biddle Street. The neighborhood lies east of Oliver, north of Middle East, south of Lake Clifton, and west of Berea.[1][2]

Though the area was once considered middle-class, it has in the last century experienced economic depression, housing abandonment, crime, and racial rioting. Its residents are largely lower income African Americans. A filming location for The Wire (TV series), a Baltimore based HBO drama, Broadway East is a neighborhood where Bloods gang members are concentrated.[3]
