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.

In this section of the web site you will learn more about our Neighborhoods - and many of the resources they offer. For information on the Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area, visit www.BostonIslands.org.
