Spanning just six square blocks, Bay Village is Boston’s smallest official neighborhood. Bay Village is regarded as a hidden gem, surrounded by powerhouse neighbors like Chinatown, Back Bay, the South End, and Downtown. Bay Village is also the birthplace of literary great Edgar Allan Poe, whose memory lives on at Edgar Allan Poe Square on Boylston Street and Charles Street South.
Bay Village is brimming with historic charm punctuated by well-preserved brick row houses along narrow, tree-lined streets. Shops and restaurants abound in the small neighborhood, while the many cultural amenities of the Theatre District Downtown Boston are within close proximity. Convenience to I-90 and the T makes getting around from walkable Bay Village easy.
