South End

One of Boston’s most beautiful neighborhoods, and one of its most culturally diverse, the South End has a rich history. Bordered by the Back Bay, Chinatown, and Roxbury, the area’s primary commercial thoroughfare runs along Columbus, Harrison, Tremont and Washington.

Originally marshland bisected by a narrow strip of land called The Neck (now Washington Street), the South End consists of historic residential blocks, parks, and main thoroughfares. After the marsh was filled, development began in 1850 by real estate speculators building fashionable, single-family rowhouses. Restrictions on building size and materials meant residential structures in long uniform rows, resulting in remarkable visual unity throughout the area.

This centrally-located neighborhood has something for everyone. The South End is truly a cosmopolitan neighborhood and has recently become one of the City’s most popular neighborhoods. This Landmark District is home to young professionals, families, and a vibrant LGBTQ community.  There are nearly 30 parks in the area (you will find me with my Frenchie at Blackstone or Peter's.) It’s also home to a thriving arts community and some of the best restaurants in Boston.
