About East Boston

Although situated adjacent to Logan International Airport, East Boston is a lovely community with extraordinarily convenient access to Downtown Boston — just one or two subway stops away on the Blue Line.

This historically more affordable and diverse neighborhood has recently become very attractive for real estate developers looking for cheap land near Downtown Boston, which has spurred a building boom. Whereas more construction and investment in the area is good, it's actually having some negative repercussions, skyrocketing housing prices and pushing out some long-time residents. In just the past year, rents in East Boston have climbed more than 6 percent.
