Originally a bastion of working-class Irish Catholics has been “discovered” by the young professional, singles, couples and families who flock to the neighborhood pubs and easy T transportation to their Downtown jobs. South Boston offers a lower price point for housing than the much more expensive Back Bay, Beacon Hill and South End. Parking with housing is available plus the resident parking program is ideal for those with vehicles.
People from all over the city enjoy Castle Island, a Revolutionary War-era fort and 22-acre park that is connected to the mainland. The “Southie Parade” is a well-known event neighborhood event celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in March. The South Boston Waterfront abuts the burgeoning Seaport/Innovation District that is exploding into a vibrant 24/7 mixed-use live, work, play neighborhood. The South Boston Waterfront, located across Fort Point Channel from Downtown, includes Fort Point to the west, the Seaport World Trade Center and the Marine Industrial Park to the east. All these areas are transforming from historic warehouses and industrial space to creative, tech, and residential areas in Boston. The South Boston Waterfront located on the Silver T Line, several MBTA buses and Logan Airport plus South Station are just a stop away in each direction.
