West Broadway is a commercial district located on the West Side of the South Boston neighborhood that is also home to a sprinkling of newer condos. In recent years, the area has attracted young professionals and families because of its quick access to Downtown Boston, public transportation, and its collection of popular bars and eateries. In contrast to the East Side which offers more conventional properties, West Broadway is known largely for its enclave of luxury condos and new construction.
West Broadway is a long, skinny neighborhood with two triangular sections spanning east. The western border largely runs along Dorchester Avenue while eastern borders run along West 2nd Street; B Street, and Old Colony Avenue. The Telegraph Hill and City Point neighborhoods are located to the east.
