Originally a section of Roxbury, Jamaica Plain today is a 4.4 square mile neighborhood of Boston that is home to a large part of the Emerald Necklace parks. One of the most sought after parks is the Arnold Arboretum, a great place to take a stroll on a weekend or enjoy a relaxing picnic with good company.
Once the area officially became part of Boston in late 1800’s growth began to happen in JP. With that growth was the introduction of countless triple decker homes that began to line the streets. The Stony Brook valley was once the epicenter of much industry. In fact, breweries took advantage of the power of the Stony Brook aquifer and a once large German population in the area. Today, much of the value of the brook is a distant memory and we are reminded of it by the naming of a T stop – Stony Brook Station. The new major avenue in “JP” is Center Street. This main street that runs through the diverse neighborhood offers a plethora of family owned businesses from shops to restaurants and bars.
