This newer tour provides a glimpse into a hip and changing area. The area of the South End that is South of Washington Street is experiencing yet another reboot. The neighborhood first came into being when the South Cove was filled in the 1830s. Then the area saw a massive transformation in the 1950s when Boston’s first major urban redevelopment project obliterated the area called the New York Streets. Now with another redevelopment of the area (formerly occupied by the Boston Herald) into the “Ink Block” this enclave is remodeling itself once again.

This tour can be scheduled as a private tour with advance notice. Call 617.367.2345 or use our private tour webform to learn more.
