  • Boston’s Diverse Dorchester Neighborhood Is Undergoing Gentrification

    Founded in 1630, the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston is a historic neighborhood first settled by Puritans from Dorchester, England. At 6 square miles, bordered by the Neponset River and Boston Harbor, Dorchester is Boston’s largest neighborhood and was annexed to the city in 1870.

    In the early 2000s, the neighborhood was “discovered” by first time homebuyers looking for easily accessible public transportation to downtown Boston. The MBTA Red Line serves Dorchester with stops at Ashmont, Cedar Grove, Butler, Shawmut, Fields Corner and JFK/UMass stations.

    Historically, the majority of Dorchester’s residents lived in rental units; however, many of those apartments have been renovated and converted, although there are still a number of available single and multi-family homes, which are reasonably priced by Boston standards. There is also a good selection of recently constructed condos, townhouses and some single-family homes.

    Often referred to as “Dot” by Bostonians, Dorchester has a demographically diverse population of Millennials, Irish, African, Caribbean, European and Latino-Americans, as well as a large group of Vietnamese citizens. The neighborhood has lively, thriving and eclectic commercial areas, with many immigrant-owned restaurants, shops and pubs. Shoppers and diners frequent Dorchester Avenue and Fields Corner, which attract visitors from throughout the Boston Metro Area.

    There are six branches of the Boston Public Library in Dorchester: Adams Street, Codman Square, Fields Corner, Grove Square, Lower Mills and Uphams Corner. The community is also home to UMass Boston.

    Other attractions include the JFK Presidential Library and Museum, the Strand Theatre in Uphams Corner (a restored vaudeville house) and the Commonwealth Museum, detailing the history of the state. Numerous parks are located throughout Dorchester including Hilltop Park, Dorchester Park and Franklin Park, which is home to the Franklin Park Zoo as well as walking paths, tennis courts, baseball fields, golf courses and basketball courts.
