Jamaica Plain (known as “JP” by locals), is a classic “streetcar suburb” that has evolved into one of Boston’s most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods. This rich diversity in JP has created a strong character of social awareness among neighbors, giving this friendly area a laid-back appeal. Neighborhood residents include families, students, and professionals.
This blend of cultures is reflected in local businesses, such as the unique restaurants, shops and watering holes which line Centre Street, one of its main thoroughfares. Residents and visitors enjoy walking, biking, and running along Jamaica Pond, a lovely green space along Boston’s Emerald Necklace.
