Famous for it’s colonial architecture, Charlestown has seen dramatic changes since the late 80’s when it’s Irish Mob presence and shipyard feel was still overwhelming.

Home to the famous Bunker Hill Monument and acting as the set for recent films such as The Town, this neighborhood is a pinnacle of Boston’s history and culture.
