The Charlestown Navy Yard, during its nearly 175 years of serving the fleet with distinction and proving its worth in each of the nation's wars, closed in 1974. The Yard built more than 200 warships and maintained and repaired thousands as needed. From its inception, the yard was in the forefront of shipyard technology.
It is located on a peninsula to the north of the Charles River, across from downtown Boston.
The Charlestown Navy Yard sat on 30 acres which became part of Boston National Historical Park. The National Park Service now maintains an important part of the ship yard, and as part of the Park Service's interpretive program, USS Constitution, in connection with the United States Navy, and USS Cassin Young are preserved as representatives of the kinds of vessels built in this yard. The area today has many commercial shops and restaurants, along with small museums and great views. New condo developments are being built with many more residential units in the planning stages for the yard.
Located just across Boston Harbor to the north, the town of Charlestown has been gaining popularity over the past decade, greatly due to the conversion and the cleanup of several waterfront areas, such as the Charlestown Navy Yard and various neighborhoods.
Charlestown has many modern and luxurious homes including Victorian style homes, converted commercial buildings, colonials and brownstone homes. Luxury high rise condo developments are now lining the town's waterfront.
Many fine restaurants and small shopping areas can be found on the eastern part of town. Charlestown offers a relaxing suburban feel, while being located less than five minutes from downtown Boston.
