Apartments for rent in Boston’s South End
Anyone who declared 20 years ago that Boston’s South End real estate would soon become some of the most expensive and sought after in the city would have been considered delusional. This was, after all, a run down, dirty, and dangerous place framed by the ugly and very loud elevated train tracks that tore through the heart of the neighborhood. What a difference a decade makes!
Members of Boston’s gay and arts communities recognized the inherent possibilities contained in the South End’s beautiful and elegant old brick row houses, quiet cobblestone streets, and spacious old industrial loft spaces and started moving there in droves starting in the early 1990s. They cleaned up the neighborhood, established art galleries, bistros, and shops, and turned the neighborhood from drab to fantastic. Now apartments in the South End are considered the best places in the city to live. Why not, since they’re just steps away from fine dining, great nightspots, and beautiful parks? If you are looking for an apartment in the South End, you’ll have your pick of places that fit your budget and interests. The newly renovated lofts that line Harrison Ave and the surrounding streets give ample space and light, while smaller, more traditional apartments in the South End can be found on the streets around Tremont St. When you have an apartment in Boston’s South End, you’ll never be far from the action. Tremont St. in lined with some of the best restaurants in Boston - Hamersley's Bistro, Aquitaine, and Icarus are just some of the spots that lure people in from all over the Boston area on any given night.
