Welcome to East Boston

Close to downtown and teeming with luxurious condos, this traditional Boston neighborhood has recently witnessed a rebirth
Home to over 45,000 residents East Boston—nicknamed “Eastie”—has experienced a rebirth over the past few years, growing increasingly popular with young professionals who covet its close proximity to downtown and luxurious condo complexes. 
Traffic is tough here, and since this neighborhood is adjacent to Boston Logan International Airport, the noise is considerable. But there is also ample green space, and residents treasure areas like Piers Park, Belle Isle Marsh Reservation, or Constitution Beach—known to locals as Shay’s Beach. 
There’s plenty of historical landmarks here, including the Baker Congregational Church, Bennington Street Burying Ground, and Temple Ohabei Shalom Cemetery, the first Jewish cemetery in the state. 
The food in Eastie is also a significant draw. Filled with an eclectic array of international cuisine, diners can choose from Italian, Spanish, Mexican, Colombian, and even Peruvian food.

What to Love

  • Luxurious condo and apartment complexes feature waterfront views
  • It offers big-city amenities as well as plenty of green space
  • Plenty of historical landmarks give this district character

Filled with longtime residents who established the area’s working-class roots decades ago, Eastie has taken on a new look over the past several years, serving as home to many young professionals and local families.
