Once home to stockyards and meat-packing industries, Allston-Brighton today is a diverse haven for commercial and residential uses. Annexed as part of Boston in 1873, Allston-Brighton is home to generations of families and newcomers, alike, which add to the area’s unique flavor.
Commercial areas in Brighton Center, Cleveland Circle, and Oak and Union Squares lend to the area’s diverse character, as well. Likewise, Allston-Brighton’s close proximity to local universities, such as Boston College, Boston University, and the Harvard Graduate School of Business, make Allston-Brighton home to a large percentage of Boston’s student population.
Yes, these are separate neighborhoods, and each has its own distinct feel and flavor, but for better or worse, people often lump the two areas together.
