Jamaica Plain, or “JP” as the locals call it, is a “streetcar suburb” that has evolved into a dynamic neighborhood. It was originally a summertime resort destination for Bostonians, located on the southwest of Downtown Boston. Annexed by the City in 1874, always a center for residential life, arts and commerce.
You will find many triple-decker houses in a variety of colors. Jamaica Plain is home to many Latinos, young families and growing gay community. Hyde Square and Jackson Square are heavily made up of the Spanish population. A variety of restaurants are located on Centre Street and residents can enjoy Jamaica Pond for recreation (68 acres) on Jamaicaway which is part of the Emerald Necklace.
Notable Jamaica Plain businesses include the Samuel Adams brewery and JP Licks.
