West End

This small but historic neighborhood is a mix of old and new Boston.

The West End has always been an ethnically diverse and vibrant neighborhood. It’s home to prominent Boston institutions, including Massachusetts General Hospital and TD Garden. With a bustling business community and a growing residential population, the West End is the up-and-coming neighborhood in Boston.
