Boston Real Estate

Rich in history, the city of Boston is the economic and cultural anchor of the New England region. Boston residents relish the feel of living in a small town with all the perks of city life. The Greater Boston area is home to world-class schools, employers and health care as well as many cultural institutions and historic attractions. Boston proper occupies 90 square miles with approximately 46% water, underscoring Boston’s orientation as a thriving port city. While Boston’s 700,000 residents live in 23 officially designated neighborhoods, they are united in their passion for local Boston sports teams. New England’s tallest buildings as well as prominent landmarks, such as Copley Square, the Boston Public Library and Newbury Street, are all located in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. Downtown Boston includes largely Federal style buildings interspersed with modern high-rises and comprises the Financial District and Government Center. Tony Beacon Hill is home to one of the most photographed blocks in the region while Seaport and many South Boston neighborhoods are seeing red-hot real estate markets as more families and professionals move into the area attracted by Boston’s entrepreneurial culture. Properties range from luxurious lofts in high-rise buildings overlooking the water to renovated triple-deckers, elegant Victorians, classic brownstones, and more traditional wooden and brick single-family homes.  Read more about Boston real estate.

More About Boston Real Estate

 Boston Location

Situated along the Atlantic Ocean, Boston is the only state capital in the U.S. with an ocean shoreline. The Greater Boston region also includes Boston Harbor and the Boston Harbor Islands to the east. The Boston Harbor separates East Boston from Downtown, the North End and the Seaport neighborhoods while the Neponset River forms the boundary between Boston’s southern neighborhoods and the city of Quincy and town of Milton.

Nicknamed “The Walking City,” Boston is pedestrian-friendly and hosts more walking commuters in the country than any other major American city. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority or MBTA operates Boston’s underground rapid transit system while Amtrak provides intercity rail to Boston through four stations: South Station; North Station; Back Bay; and Route 128.

Boston Recreation

Boston maintains one of the oldest park systems in the U.S. Along with the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common, Boston is home to the Emerald Necklace, a string of parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to encircle the city. The Esplanade on the banks of the Charles River is another favorite park and the site of the Hatch Shell, an outdoor concert venue and host of the Fourth of July celebrations. Other parks are scattered throughout the city, including a string of beaches near Castle Island and along the Charlestown, South Boston and East Boston shorelines.

Boston’s museums and historic attractions are legion ranging from the Museum of Fine Arts to the Paul Revere House to the Old North Church to following the brick-laid Freedom Trail winding through Boston streets. Boston sporting events located at the Boston Garden near North Station and at Fenway Park are a big part of Boston’s DNA as a “title town.” The Patriots play at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, 28 miles southwest of the city. One of Boston's best known sporting events held every year is the Boston Marathon, the world’s oldest annual marathon which finishes in Back Bay.

Boston History

Often referred to as the “cradle of liberty,” Boston is one of the oldest cities in the U.S., founded on the Shawmut Peninsula in 1630 by Puritan settlers. It is perhaps best known as the political backdrop for several key events during the American Revolution, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and the Battle of Bunker Hill. Since Revolutionary times, the city has expanded significantly beyond the original peninsula using landfill to reclaim land that formed many of Boston’s most famous neighborhoods including Beacon Hill and Back Bay. Boston’s many firsts include the first public park — the Boston Common in 1634; the first public school — the Boston Latin School in 1635; and the first subway system created in 1897. Boston has also welcomed different waves of immigrants who have helped create a distinct melting pot of cultures as well as contributing to the current wealth of culinary options available.
