BAY VILLAGE
BIRTHPLACE OF EDGAR ALLAN POE
Welcome to Bay Village, Boston.
Bay village is the smallest neighborhood in Boston, comprising 837 housing units and only 1,300 residents. Throughout the years, Bay Village has been called Church Street District, South Cove and Kerry Village. The centrally located Bay Village consists of a one-way network with a varying grid layout, which contributes to a quiet neighborhood with little traffic. Pedestrians can enjoy their evening walks through pastoral streets featuring brick paved sidewalks, gas street lamp and historically preserved buildings. The area immediately around Bay Village offers a few parks, such as Eliot Norton Park, Boston Public Garden and Boston Common. Bay Village was originally a landfill created by developer Ephraim Marsh, in the 1820s, and many of the homes here are small brick-row houses. Often, they look similar to the Beacon Hill townhouses but smaller, since the craftsmen who built them settled in Bay Village and created their own modest versions. The neighborhood has traditionally been lower-middle class, but in later years it has become quite upscale and expensive. One of the main features that makes this green enclave of Boston so particular is the multitude of historical Federal Period townhouses, Victorian homes and Art Deco architectural details. Down on Fayette Street, you'll find 1830s English Neoclassic, while Melrose Street boasts elaborate Greek Revival style. Further down, Stuart Street separates the neighborhood from Park Square with luxury condos that were previously Art Deco warehouses, reminding residents of the time when Bay Village was a film industry hub. This wonderful, hidden gem in Boston is described by locals as friendly, convenient and diverse with a mix of singles, couples, families, students and professionals. The area is tranquil and separate from the rest of Boston, hence many Bostonites doesn't really know its there. Aside from a handful of restaurants alongside the edges of the neighborhood, this is a purely residential area. Bookworms may appreciate the fact that the famous poet Edgar Allan Poe was in fact born here on Carver Street, and while the building he lived in has been demolished, the corner of Boylston and Charles Street has been named Poe Square in his honor.
