Sandwiched between Harvard and Boston College in the Allston-Brighton neighborhood in east Boston, the St. Elizabeth's neighborhood is a popular choice for college students. With plenty of restaurants and entertainment available, St. Elizabeth's is never boring. Although the area surrounding the hospital and medical center dies down at night, you can always find something to do along Washington Street. However, during the summer, the area can seem abandoned due to the exodus of its large student population.
For doctors and nurses, St. Elizabeth's has plenty of housing available close by the medical facilities. With the number of medical professionals living in the community and the low crime rate compared to surrounding areas, St. Elizabeth's has gained a reputation as a young, vibrant neighborhood.
