Boston: A City of Neighborhoods

While many cities are defined by their skylines, Boston is distinguished by its vibrant neighborhoods. Indeed, Boston's strength, diversity and vitality are all rooted in her neighborhoods, where neighborhood pride and cultures from all over the world are cherished and celebrated. Although each neighborhood has its own personality and distinct appeal, all of the neighborhoods demonstrate Boston's changing face, as this historic capital has become a magnet for all of the world's citizens. These new immigrants have joined native Bostonians and transplants from across the country to make Boston the world-class city it is today.

NEW (Neighborhood Engagement Walks) Boston

A comprehensive audit of every street in every neighborhood across Boston.

Starting September 15, liaisons from the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS) began walking the 850 miles of city streets across Boston. The goal? To closely examine every facet of every neighborhood in the City, engage constituents on the ground, and build relationships between the City and its residents face-to-face.
