The Historical West End of Boston

It is widely known that the West End, in Boston, is one of the most attractive areas in Boston for real estate developers due to its fewer tourist areas and historical heritage. The beautiful neighborhood was founded in 1700 and occupied by the cross-population of immigrants with diverse cultures and beliefs, including the Irish, Italian, Poles, and Jews. Thereby turning the area into a real culture-tolerant neighborhood. After the sad World War II, in 1958, the area popularly known to celebrate the nation's history of transformation and for housing great institutions in Boston, became the city's site of "Urban renewal," transforming the area tremendously.
