Charlestown/Navy Yard

Has the distinction of being the oldest neighborhood in Boston.

Welcome to Charlestown/Navy Yard

 
Located on a peninsula just north of Downtown, Charlestown has the distinction of being the oldest neighborhood in Boston. It is largely residential, with clapboard single family homes, Federal style brick rowhouses, and condominium buildings - some with stunning harbor and/or skyline views - lining its narrow streets. History buffs know Charlestown for its historic sites, among them, the Bunker Hill Monument (site of the Battle of Bunker Hill) and the Warren Tavern, which first opened its doors during the Revolutionary War. 
 
Charlestown is home to the Navy Yard, which served the U.S. Navy from 1800 – 1974. Now a museum managed by the National Park Service, visitors may also tour the 1797 U.S.S Constitution Warship, which is permanently anchored at the Yard. 
 
Some areas of Charlestown evoke the charm of North Shore coastal communities, giving this neighborhood of Boston a uniquely small town feel. This is likely due to the fact that many of the residential buildings are lower rise and smaller scale than in other parts of the city.
 
Charlestown offers a lively mix of excellent restaurants and casual cafes.
