Mid-Dorchester

Learn more about Mid-Dorchester, a small part of the City’s biggest neighborhood.

The Mid Dorchester Corridor is made up of four main sections:

  • Uphams Corner
  • Bowdoin/Geneva
  • Four Corners, and
  • Codman Square.

Each section has it’s unique flavor. We have a very diverse area, ranging from Cape Verdeans, Latinos, Caribbean, and Vietnamese population.  There are plenty of dining opportunity in the neighborhood.

The City is bringing lots of new development to the area, including housing and light industrial and commercial opportunities. With the improvement of the Fairmount/ Indigo Line, there's now easy access to jobs and the downtown financial area.
