Highland Park

Highland Park is a neighborhood of around 5,500 people and is situated near the Roxbury area of Boston. The neighborhood has individuals of all different backgrounds and races and is accepting of anyone. The neighborhood is full of parks and schools which make it ideal for families, but is also close enough to nightlife, shopping, and institutions to be practical for individuals and professionals as well. If you are interested in renting in this neighborhood, be sure to check out the apartment listings on Renthop.

Atmosphere

The feel you will experience when you step into Highland Park is a very simple and down-to-earth one. It is a no-frills neighborhood with accepting individuals from all backgrounds, trees galore, plenty of parks, and much more. Even though it is a small neighborhood, there are a number of schools and parks throughout which make it great for young families. Highland Park is one of the most ethnically diverse places in all of Boston. Almost 40% of the population of this neighborhood has less than a high school diploma, and as a result, the median income for a family is around $20,000 less than the norm for Boston.

Despite that, people here are generally happy and easy-going and in recent years, the neighborhood is getting an influx of artists and professionals alike. While its history might not have always been the brightest, the neighborhood is on the up and up and gentrification is likely to occur in the neighborhood very soon.

History

Before it was established as a neighborhood, the area where this neighborhood sits played an important role in the American Revolutionary War as defensive forts were built here. Early in the 19th century, the neighborhood made the transition from an agricultural center to a residential center, and the neighborhood made the transition to a residential area extremely quickly. The improvements in transportation into the neighborhood made it a popular location for wealthy individuals.

Later on, during the early portion of the 20th century, there was an influx of immigrants from all over the world that came into Highland Park. Also, as a part of the Great Migration in the mid-20th century, there was a large number of African-Americans that came to the neighborhood. Today, the neighborhood is extremely racially diverse and accepting of all cultures and backgrounds.

While this has improved and isn’t widespread throughout the neighborhood, crime has been an issue in the neighborhood at times. As a result, the rent in this neighborhood is among the most affordable in the city. With the rent being fairly low and the location good, you can’t go wrong renting in Highland Park.

Getting Around

Being that the neighborhood is fairly far south in Boston, most people have a decently lengthy commute, especially if they work downtown. As a result, public transit and driving are the two most common and most practical ways of getting to work and getting around this neighborhood.

There are a number of bus and subway routes in or near this neighborhood which can get you all across Boston within a reasonable time. Despite this, the most popular method of getting to work and traveling throughout the neighborhood is driving. About 30% of residents drive to work in Highland Park.

Despite the fact the neighborhood is quite far from the city center, a decent number of residents walk to work. However, most of these people who walk to work likely work within or near Highland Park, and aren’t walking downtown or anywhere that far away.

Being that this neighborhood is largely residential, things like shopping and other errands will often require to you drive or take public transit to do in a timely manner. Thankfully, both of those methods of transportation are viable in this neighborhood.
