My Neighborhood Boston header

W e l c o m e

Since the Boston Foundation first opened its doors in 1915, it has been deeply involved with the people and places that make Boston one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. Boston has always been a “city of neighborhoods,” and through this website, we celebrate these neighborhoods and the characteristics that make each of them unique.

My Neighborhood: Boston is a site where you will find creative reflections from neighborhood residents as well as useful information and links to neighborhood resources. We ask you to participate in making this website a rich resource for the people of Boston. We hope that by providing this evolving platform, all of us will gain an even greater appreciation of this remarkable city of neighborhoods that we call home. Here you will find reflections on neighborhoods through photography, art, prose and poetry.

My Neighborhood: Boston is currently under reconstruction.  Check back at the end of
the summer when the original contents will again be available.

Administrative support for
My Neighborhood: Boston
