West End Real Estate
The West End is a largely commercial neighborhood in Boston dominated by high-rises and Massachusetts General Hospital. The West End is also home to TD Garden, home of the Celtics and Bruins, and a number of associated sports bars and eateries. Occupying just under 4 square miles, housing is scarce but for sports lovers and those associated with the hospital, the neighborhood is right in the center of the action. The area is also studded with riverside parks adding touches of green here and there as a respite from the usual bustle. Working professionals find the area an appealing home base for easy commutes to North Station and Downtown. Read more about West End real estate.

West End History
The West End has seen several dramatic transformations. In the late 1950s, urban renewal efforts forced the displacement of more than 20,000 people when an Italian and Jewish neighborhood was razed in order to redevelop much of the Downtown. Today much of the original West End is not residential, including part of Government Center. A hidden jewel, the West End Museum showcases many of the area’s former immigrant populations.
