Neighborhoods

Here’s where you find posts about specific neighborhoods within Jamaica Plain. Like the borders of JP itself, identifying our sub-neighborhoods is more art than science. We recommend this excellent map put together by the JP Gazette as a the single most authoritative source.

For disputed areas, we tag as many neighborhoods as make sense to help people find what they’re looking for. For instance, a post about a development at McBride and Washington might be tagged not only “Stonybrook” but also “Washington Street.”

We sometimes post items right on the (often disputed) borders of JP. See these tags for stories on adjoining neighborhoods:
