  1. Just that you know: I used to work in the same building where the Lieber institute is located. There is no roadside free parking past 7am and the paid parking runs about $150 a month, it is in an open parking lot where cars get broken into. The surrounding downtown area around that part of Hopkins Medical school is a hardcore ghetto and the traffic is bad so if you want to rent or buy a reasonably decent place to live, expect a 45 minute commute.
