East Boston

The vibrant neighborhood features restaurants, shops, and one of the most beautiful waterfronts in the City.

East Boston was once a center for shipbuilding, but it has always been a neighborhood of immigrants. You can see the diversity in the neighborhood’s many ethnic restaurants. Today, its population is mostly:

  • Italian-Americans
  • immigrants from Central and South America, and
  • 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.
