Dorchester recognized by 24/7 Wall St.

Recently 24/7 Wall Street named Dorchester the 5th “hottest” neighborhood in the United States.  For those unfamiliar with Boston, Dorchester is one of the city’s largest neighborhoods and was a traditional Irish enclave, but in recent years many other ethnic groups have settled here because of its more affordable rents and proximity to downtown.

While my neighborhood, the South End, is often thought of as Boston’s  gay neighborhood, everyone knows that many gay men started leaving the South End more than a decade ago for Dorchester. Is it any wonder that Dorchester is now being recognized as one of America’s hottest neighborhoods? I think not.

Thanks to Brit for the nudge to give Dorchester some kudos on the recognition. Want to see what other neighborhoods were recognized? Link here.

  2. That’s my neighborhood! Still can’t believe anyone would call it “hot” even though it did have quite the real estate boom back when things were getting heated,,,
