Jamaica Plain Homes for Sale
Affectionately known by the locals as “JP”, Jamaica Plain is a lively, diverse neighborhood located between Roxbury and Brookline. JP is home to many families, young professionals, artists, and political activists. Hyde and Jackson Squares mainly consist of Spanish-speaking populations from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Cuba. This mixture of cultures is represented everywhere in the district. As a first time visitor, you can’t help but notice the beautifully painted murals on the walls of many buildings throughout the area. These colorful murals illustrate aspects of living in the community, bringing its unique character to light.
Another main attraction is Centre Street, JP’s downtown. The street is lined with a number of local hotspots, including restaurants like Ten Tables and Grass Fed. Both of these restaurants support local, organic farms. Ten Tables is a an upscale dining establishment with a laid back feel, and Grass Fed is the perfect place to grab a milkshake and a burger. Canary Square is another fun spot for cocktails and a casual dinner after a long work day. You can also find excellent ethnic eateries like Cuba Oriental, JP Seafood, and Blue Nile. After a meal, you can stop at J.P. Licks for delicious, award-winning, homemade ice cream.
To support local businesses, residents and visitors attend “First Thursday” each month on Centre and South Streets to enjoy food, music, shopping, and art that the storefronts have to offer. Another business headquartered in JP, the Sam Adams brewery, provides tours to residents and tourists alike.
While JP is very close to the city, it has a family-friendly, suburban feel. On Sundays, you’ll find residents walking their pets, pushing strollers, biking, and running along Jamaica Pond, which is a part of Boston’s Emerald Necklace. Jamaica Pond also provides facilities for sailing and rowing, and outdoor concerts and events are often held there as well.
Jamaica Plain is easily accessible by public transportation. By subway, you can reach JP via the Jackson Square, Stony Brook, Green Street, and Forest Hills stops on the Orange line.
