Boston Globe Top Places to Live: South End

The Boston Globe published their "Top Spots to Live" listing surrounding neighborhoods and towns for a variety of quality of life standards. I'm proud to say that my neighborhood - the South End - was identified as the best place to live for food lovers. I've lifted the text from the Boston Globe article and posted it below. If you'd like to read the full article, you can link here.


Median single-family home price: $1,610,000
Median condo price: $554,888
Population: 25,889
Residential tax rate: $12.79

It’s not just the number, variety, and quality of restaurants that make Boston’s South End a mecca for food lovers; it’s also the array of specialty purveyors, such as the Five Seventy Market and South End Formaggio. Restaurants are plentiful and mostly, but not entirely, pricey. Diners can opt for anything from $44 salmon at Mistral to an $11 traditional Ethiopian beef dish at Addis Red Sea.
