Dorchester, Hub's Biggest Neighborhood, Enclave by Enclave

New, 5 comments

Everyone knows that Dorchester is Boston's biggest neighborhood by area, a veritable city within a city, with its own distinct neighborhoods and micro-neighborhoods. To better gauge where these enclaves begin and end—and where the larger neighborhood itself begins and ends—real estate data site NeighborhoodX researched and crowd-sourced an interactive map of Dot.

The map covers all the usual suspects, including early Curbed Cup 2015 favorite Savin Hill, Ashmont, Jones Hill, and Lower Mills. Also included are more obscure names (to the uninitiated) such as the Polish Triangle and Mount Bowdoin. There's even an alternative take on the borders of Fields Corner. Let the debate begin.
