History

Back Bay arguably has one of the most unique histories of any distinct neighborhood in Boston. A century and a half ago it was covered in water – nothing but swampland. However, as the population of the city drastically increased, so did the demand for land. City planners undertook an enormous landfill project and turned the area into what it is today. Interestingly enough, Back Bay is the only portion of the city to be designed with a genuine street grid pattern. Furthermore, finding your way through the neighborhood is easy, as cross streets are in alphabetical order (Arlington, Berkeley, Clarendon, etc.).
