Baltimore MD neighborhoods

A friend is moving to Baltimore, MD. She has been offered a good apartment, but we don't have any contacts there to scope out the area. So, we are calling on MeFites who may be able to help us with a neighborhood question (and general Baltimore advice)! [More Inside]
When we went to scope out the city, it seemed to drastically change personality and atmosphere on each street (I guess this is true for many cities.) But somehow it seemed more obvious in Baltimore - some areas felt really populated, while others were almost deserted. She is moving to attend a program which will be housed at the Hopkins Medical Center, and she has been offered a good option for an apartment near the corners of South Washington Street and East Baltimore Street. It seems to be a few blocks West from Patterson Park.
Does anyone have any anecdotal advice for this area? Is it fairly safe? The apartment itself is great value, so she's tempted to take it, but I'm wondering if anyone here knows what that area is really like. Also, any advice for Baltimore in general is very welcome! Thanks in advance for your help.
