South End is one of the most diverse Boston neighborhoods. It is considered to be one of the main restaurant districts of Boston, serving an eclectic selection of cuisine to include French, Indian, Italian, Korean, Greek, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Thai and many others.
In fact, Tremont Street running through the neighborhood is affectionately known as “Restaurant Row.” South End was also once the “Jazz Mecca” up until the 1950s. Some of the most prominent jazz musicians had once played in one of the many music clubs found in the South End during its heyday. The last standing Jazz club today is Wally’s Paradise.
The South End is mainly made up of mid-nineteenth century bowfronts; an aesthetically uniform style with rows of five-story buildings, usually constructed with red brick. The most common styles are Renaissance Revival, Italianate and French Second Empire. It’s the perfect neighborhood for anyone who is looking to own a home or condo in a chic urban environment that’s moments away from all the hotspots in town.
Most of the South End public transportation is provided by the MBTA’s rapid bus transit system, also known as the Silver line, which connects to major subway stations as well. The South End also is in close proximity to I-93, making it very highway accessible.
