Bay Village Neighborhood in Boston

Bay Village is one of the smallest and most hidden neighborhoods within Boston, MA, with a population of less than 3,000. The 25 acre sized village is a residential neighborhood mainly occupied by Caucasian, Hispanic and African American residents. The residents are known to be liberal and culture conscious overall. The Village area was first occupied by Ephraim Marsh, a developer who landfilled the original water area and mapped out its street. After many years, the craftsmen who built Beacon city occupied the area and built residential houses for themselves and family. The building's exquisite characteristics and resemblance to those in Beacon gave the area the name "Mini-beacon". Today the area is not just known as Boston's historic District but also has a birth home to popular American poet Edgar Poe Allan.

Great experience from start to finish. Very knowledgeable and courteous staff. They had by far the best quality and warranty, which is why I went with them. They also offer amazing financing plans which allowed me to complete the entire project at once as I had hoped. Highly recommended.

The district is never void of commercial buildings, though very few. The Revere Hotel, with its comforting environment located at the beautiful corner of Stuart Street, few restaurants, especially the popular Mike and Patty found within the Church Street and peculiar for its outstanding sandwiches, public schools such as the Boston Latin School and O'Bryant School of Maths and Sciences, numerous small gardens found all around the area, Cafes' such as the Davao's to Go, and the numerous fun parks which shares boundaries with the district.
One may think such a small place would hold no value, but the neighborhood's features, pattern, and character justify its existence.
