Fenway is one of Boston’s larger neighborhoods, with its famous centerpiece Fenway Park dominating the landscape. There is a diverse mixture of residents here from students to the upper class living in lavish townhome buildings on Park Drive. Fenway is a very active area, not for the faint of heart or those needing quiet side streets. If you don’t mind the hustle and bustle, it’s a very well adjusted Boston neighborhood with all the necessities for a city dweller (and who doesn’t love hearing the crowd go wild from their bedroom window as Big Papi cracks his bat). Bordered by Boston University, Brookline the Longwood Medical area and Northeastern University, Fenway is surrounded with the glue of our city: Education and Medicine.
