Great site describing many of Boston’s great neighborhoods, along with a huge number of great photos.
A little about the South End, the best neighborhood in America!
The South End’s population has been diverse since the 1880s when Irish, Jewish, African-American, Greek, Syrian, and Lebanese populations began to settle in the neighborhood. In the 1930 a substantial immigration from Canada’s maritime provinces found economic opportunity in Boston and homes in the South End. Today the neighborhood remains diverse, relatively less expensive than the wealthier Beacon Hill and Back Bay, and income levels are stratified. The South End is built mostly of mid-19th century bowfronts.
