Jamaica Plain is a part of the City of Boston; Diversity is the strength of “JP,” to which it is lovingly referred by residents. This rich diversity has created a strong character of social awareness and community activity among neighbors and residents. Centre Street and South Street are home to lots of small neighborhood shops and restaurants. You can rent a sailboat on Jamaica Pond or count hundreds of varieties of trees in the Arnold Arboretum. Don’t forget to see exotic animals at the Franklin Park Zoo.
A hot real estate market has driven dramatic increases in the value of older homes in the Parkside, Pondside and Sumner Hill neighborhoods and conversion of some larger residential properties and older commercial buildings into a condominium. Numerous formerly vacant structures are being converted to residential use, among them the ABC Brewery, the Gormley Funeral Home, the Eblana Brewery, the Oliver Ditson Company, 319 Centre Street, Jackson Square, JP Cohousing, Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady of the Way, and 80 Bickford Street.
The oldest community theatre in the US, Footlight Club, is located in this neighborhood.
