Hyde Park


From urban to commercial, to homes nestled in the woods, Hyde Park has some characteristics of almost every neighborhood in the city.  Set on the southwestern edge of Boston it is almost a gateway to the commuter rail system from the west with two lines and the corridor for the Amtrak Acela.

It also has that same break up of sub-neighborhoods, and like the others one is named for a hill.  Fairmont Hill, Stonybrook and Readville are the areas made up mostly of single families, while Cleary Square, Riverside Square and the River Street corridor have a nice mix.  Hyde Park Ave trails from retail on the eastern edge to more commercial and then back to a residential mix.
