About Porter Square

If you want everything within walking distance, while being able to hop a quick T ride into Downtown Boston, look no further.

Want to see what it's like on the ground? Take a Google Maps "street view" stroll through Porter Square!

With both a Red Line and a commuter rail stop, Porter Square attracts people who commute into and out of the city. Combine that with lower-than-average housing prices and a bunch of good shops, restaurants and bars and you've got yourself a good ol' fashioned neighborhood!
