  • immigrants from Southeast Asia.

East Boston is home to the nation’s first branch library, built in 1870. You’ll also find Logan Airport here. Neighborhood homes mix the old with the new, and include many restored triple-deckers. Residents enjoy waterfront views of the City skyline from across Boston Harbor. They also now have access to the beach by way of a brand new and beautiful greenway.
