Quincy Real Estate

Quincy is Massachusett’s eighth-largest city with a population of 92,000 and considered one of Boston’s immediate southern suburbs, lying just 10 miles south by car. Known as the “City of Presidents,” Quincy (pronounced “KWIN-zee”), is the birthplace of Presidents John Adams, his son, John Quincy Adams; and John Hancock, the first signer of the Declaration of Independence. With its close proximity to Boston, Quincy maintains an urban vibe with a number of restaurants and international markets that reflect its diversity, including Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Mexican, and, of course, seafood. Quincy also is home to a number of close-knit neighborhoods that have their own distinct personalities. Merrymount is a densely populated residential area and the site of Quincy’s initial settlement while Squantum grew from being a summer resort into a year-round residential neighborhood. Marina Bay is a newer mixed use area that features high-rise condos with water views, a number of restaurants and a large marina.

Quincy has a total area of 26.9 square miles with miles of coastline, including a dozen beaches. Wollaston Beach on Quincy Shore Drive is the largest beach at 2.5 miles long.  Read more about Quincy real estate.

More About Quincy Real Estate

Quincy Location

Quincy shares borders with Boston to the north; Randolph and Braintree to the south; Milton to the west; and Weymouth and Hull to the east.

A large part of the city’s draw is its convenience to Boston. Quincy offers some of the best non-car commutes outside of Boston with four MBTA Red Line stops and a number of bus routes. Interstate 93 also runs through Quincy making it relatively easy to drive into Downtown Boston as well.

Almost 23 percent of Quincy’s land area lies within the Blue Hills Reservation, a state park with natural wildlife and scenic views as well as the city’s highest point, Chickatawbut Hill.

Quincy Recreation

In addition to enjoying Quincy’s coastline and hikes in Blue Hills Reservation, residents also benefit from the city's music presence. PorchFest Quincy is an annual series of free music events taking place on select front porches in the warmer summer months. The event hosts a number of Quincy bands designed to bring together local musicians and neighborhoods to build community. Celebrating the Fourth of July in Quincy is vintage Americana with fireworks, parades, neighborhood cookouts and a number of other community events. With its rich history, Quincy also offers several historic landmarks, including Adams National Historical Park, the former farm of John Adams and his descendants and the United First Parish Church, where many members of the Adams family are buried.

Quincy History

First settled in 1625, Quincy was briefly part of Dorchester and Boston. In 1792 Quincy was renamed for Colonel John Quincy, the maternal grandfather of Abigail Adams. John Quincy Adams, son of John and Abigail, also bears his name. Quincy officially became a city in 1888, home to a thriving granite industry as well as the site of the Granite Railway, the U.S. first commercial railroad. Quincy is also notable as the site of two famous restaurant chains — the first Howard Johnson’s restaurant opened in Quincy Square in 1929. Dunkin’ Donuts also made its debut in Quincy in 1948. In addition to being the birthplace of many historic figures, Quincy also boasts an diverse mix of residents who were born or lived in Quincy at one time — the Dropkick Murphys, Celtic punk rock band; John Cheever, the novelist; Priscilla Chan, philanthropist and wife of Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook; and Esther R. Sanger, the “Mother Teresa of the South Shore."
