South Boston

This neighborhood has undergone significant gentrification.

Welcome to South Boston

 
South Boston, or “Southie” as it is referred to by locals, is known for many things: Reebok is headquartered here. There is a large Irish-American population, and one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes to the streets every March. Movie buffs will recognize Southie from “Good Will Hunting” and “The Departed.” And for sure, South Boston is known for its once gritty past. At one time, it was the center of Boston’s organized crime. Yet in recent decades, this neighborhood has undergone significant gentrification and has become increasingly popular with young urban professionals. Given the infusion of affluence, many luxury condominium complexes have been constructed and property values have been steadily rising. With that, new restaurants, fitness centers, stores, and services have sprung up on just about every corner.
 
A peninsula, South Boston is actually several distinct neighborhoods: Fort Point (with its former artist’s lofts now converted to loft-style residences), Andrew Square, and Dorchester Heights/Telegraph Hill. Several popular city beaches can be found along Dorchester Bay, making South Boston a popular destination in the summer months. 
 
There is plenty of green space in South Boston. Castle Island, Marine Park, and a portion of the Emerald Necklace (a park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted that links many Boston neighborhoods) draw residents and visitors year-round. Additionally, there are four yacht clubs in South Boston.
