Back Bay

Existing as a marsh until the late 1800s, Back Bay is one of Boston’s most exclusive neighborhoods, famous for its Victorian Brownstones, quiet tree-lined streets, European style shopping and outdoor dining on Newbury St, and vibrant nightlife. Surrounded by the Charles River Esplanade, Public Garden, Boston Commons, and the Fens, residents of Back Bay get to enjoy all the perks of living in heart of the city without the feeling of living in a ‘concrete jungle.’ By contrast, Back Bay is also home to Boston’s tallest buildings, the Prudential and John Hancock Towers, and despite being a US Historic District, there are many new commercial and residential developments set to take shape over the next few years.

Because of the narrow one-ways and irregular arrangement of streets, Bay Village enjoys sparse traffic and is relatively quiet and pedestrian-friendly. However, with such limited inventory and no room for development, opportunities to rent or buy are relatively rare.

Leather District

A compact area just east of Chinatown, the Leather District’s nine well-defined blocks are notable for their 19th century brick factories and warehouses that become abandoned and fell into disrepair. No more. Development of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway transformed the neighborhood into a popular mixed-use area.
