Finding the perfect Boston Bay Village apartment
It’s small, it’s quaint, and yes, it’s charming, but those aren’t the only reasons that Bay Village apartments are so desirable. Despite being for all practical purposes smack dab in the middle of downtown Boston, Bay Village has managed to keep its own unique sense of community intact. Thanks to its haphazard layout and one-way streets, Bay Village has little car traffic or noise despite its central location.
At only 6 square blocks, Bay Village is the smallest of Metro Boston’s neighborhoods. But what Bay Village lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm and history. Bay Village was created in the 1820s on landfill, and has been known since then as South Cove, Kerry Village, and the Church Street District. It’s no wonder that Bay Village real estate looks like a smaller version of Beacon Hill’s grand homes – many of the craftsmen who built Beacon Hill settled in Bay Village and built their own more modest brick rowhouse homes there. Given their scarcity, it’s not too surprising that Boston Bay Village apartment rentals might be harder to find. Don’t let that scare you away from finding a Boston Bay Village apartment of your own!
When you live in this quaint neighborhood, you’re only steps away from all the best that Boston has to offer – the Public Garden, Newbury Street, the Theater District, Chinatown, and the hip and happening South End are located right next to Bay Village. If you don’t feel like venturing out of your own quiet neighborhood, there’s even a famous drag bar within its confines (Jacques).
