Prerna Jagadeesh just moved to Jamaica Plain and wanted people to share their recommendations for the neighborhood. And, oh wow -- did people provide lots and lots of suggestions!
People suggested particular food and drink at JP's restaurants, entertainment at local spots, local businesses, community events, and how to get involved with community meetup groups (online and out in JP).
@cityfeednews sandwiches. Empanadas from Pikalo & eat them at the Behan. Dram Night @thehavenjp. Wake Up the Earth. The Arnold Arboretum. Saturday morning run club at the Pond. @OnCentreJP. Everything Free JP Facebook group. Cheapest gas around is at Alfa Fuel in Rozzie. Welcome!

Welcome to the Hub. JP has my favorite Hippie Happy Hour at Midway Cafe. Grateful Dead cover bands every Friday at 7. Well worth the trip for the experience.

Costello’s Tavern has local (townie) flavor and the cheapest drinks in the area. Good snacks too.

Jamaica Plain is full of history -- and the Jamaica Plain Historical Society has great tours.
Great neighborhood! Check out Jamaica Plain Historical for great walking tours!

Historically speaking, there are also abandoned bear dens! Yeah, they are pretty cool and unique.
Walk the Emerald Necklace, the abandoned bear dens in particular are pretty cool.

And you're just in time for springtime and our local nature spots, and don't forget about Lilac Sunday on Mothers Day!
Welcome to JP! You're just in time for the Arboretum blooming. 🌻🌷🌼🌳😀

And I know it sounds morbid, but take a walk through the Forest Hills Cemetery, it’s oddly beautiful.

Also, we didn't think that Coolidge Corner was located in JP, or Boston, for that matter...
Hop on over to coolidge corner soon! Best Trader Joe’s on the planet.
