Boston neighborhoods

Boston’s diverse neighborhoods serve as a political and cultural organizing mechanism. The City of Boston’s Office of Neighborhood Services has designated 23 Neighborhoods in the city: Allston Back Bay Bay Village Beacon Hill Brighton Charlestown Chinatown/Leather District Dorchester Downtown East Boston Fenway Kenmore Hyde Park Jamaica Plain Mattapan Mid Dorchester Mission Hill North End Roslindale Roxbury South Boston South End West End West Roxbury The islands in Boston Harbor are administered as part of the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. The Boston Redevelopment Authority, the City Parking Clerk, and the City’s Department of Neighborhood Development have also designated their own neighborhoods. Unofficially, Boston has many overlapping neighborhoods of various sizes. Neighborhood associations have formed around smaller communities or commercial districts (often with “Square” in the name) that have a well-defined center but poorly identified extremities.
