About life in Jamaica Plain:

With a very different style that distinguishes itself from more traditional Boston neighborhoods, it’s hard to categorize Jamaica Plain, or JP as locals call it, as anything but unique. This is best exhibited by their eclectic restaurants and avant-garde charm. Home to many of the jewels in the “Emerald Necklace”, Jamaica Plain has an abundance of green space for the outdoor enthusiast. This, combined with its artsy flair, easy access to downtown, and community feel make Jamaica Plain a top destination for Boston area residents.

Close to Northeastern University, Longwood Medical Area, and Wheelock College, JP attracts a diverse population including students, young professionals, and families who call it home. As one of the first “streetcar suburbs” in America, JP is an ideal commuter location with access to bike paths, scenic walkways, commuter rail connections, bus routes, and both the Green and Orange Line trains.
