The Carlyle Apartments are located near the Johns Hopkins University, on University Parkway. I lived there for a year with a roommate in a fairly spacious, upper level apartment with a nice view of the city. All in all, it was a decent place to live--but the elevators were slow, rent was a little steep, and the management could be a little bit disorganized. But the places are very big, and have parquet flooring. Also, they have a 24 hr doorman, and I always thought the building was very safe. One other point--the building is also home to a hotel--which can be convenient if you have guests from out of town--but can also mean there are random people wandering the halls at times.
