Fenway/Kenmore

Signature Boston
Home to the historic Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox, Fenway is a great neighborhood for young people. In fact, the park was named after the neighborhood. It is also home to the arts, such as Berklee School of Arts. This community boasts plenty of eateries and bars surrounding the ballpark and has seen the recent growth in the number of new skyscrapers that benefit off of the nearby baseball business.

While Fenway-Kenmore is most known for Fenway Park, there are plenty of trendy options in this neighborhood. Kenmore Square is a hotspot for socializing. Lining Lansdowne street, different sports bars and clubs are always packed with students at happy hour. Cultural landmarks that are definitely worth a visit include the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and Symphony Halls.

The restaurant and bar scene is a huge plus for residents of Fenway-Kenmore. Restaurants in the area include Au Bon Pain, Yard House, Sweet Cheeks Q, El Pelón Taqueria, Tasty Burger, and Eventide Fenway. Great bars offer plenty of options for a night out and include The Squealing Pig, Cask 'n Flagon, Bleacher Bar, Tony C's Sports Bar & Grill, and Baseball Tavern. Fenway-Kenmore is great for young professionals and students alike!

Fenway/Kenmore — None/10 Rating (based on 5 neighborhood reviews)
Location is great, living room is fairly large in the 4-bedroom/2-bathroom unit and rent is relatively cheap, but the poor condition of the building explains why. Management did not clean the apartment before we moved in, windows are old, blinds and ceiling fans have layers of thick dust, bedrooms are poorly insulated, and a bat emerged from a hole in my bedroom closet ceiling. Fine for anyone who doesn't desire spotless living conditions. Within a block or two of Whole Foods, Dunkin Donuts, multiple green line stations, and laundromat with drop off laundry service and dry cleaning options. Movie theater, Target, Star Market, and Chipotle not much farther away.

The Fenway area is a great place to live. You've got the green line (I know) right there that will take you pretty much anywhere. Lots of bars and restaurants and a grocery store as well. It's a good place for undergrads and I found it very enjoyable living there.

West Fens is, in my opinion, the best place to live in Boston. Pros: short commute downtown, plenty of transit options, lots to do (bars, restaurants, etc)., near plenty of stores (grocery store, TARGET!, Marshall's, etc.), quiet streets, and right next to the Fens for when you want your nature fix. I don't have any cons, personally. It's my ideal location.

Extremely close to Berklee & Boston Conservatory. Lots of restaurants, walkable to grocery & pharmacy. Can be loud, & can be scary to walk alone at night due to dark park & history of assaults, as well as nightclub traffic from Machine.
