Allston

Learn more about one of Boston’s most diverse and active neighborhoods.

Allston is close to many colleges and universities in and around the City, so it’s know for its student population. But, in recent years, many immigrants and young professionals have moved to the area.

This mix of people makes Allston one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Boston. You can find ethnic restaurants and popular watering holes on main streets like:

  • Harvard Avenue
  • Commonwealth Avenue, and
  • Brighton Avenue.

The Honan-Allston branch public library was named after Boston City Councilor Brian Honan. It holds a wealth of information and is a resource for the community.
