Back Bay Homes for Sale
It's easy to understand why the Back Bay is one of America's most desirable neighborhoods to live in. Newbury Street, Boylston Street and Commonwealth Avenue are lined with unique shops, trendy restaurants and vintage homes, making the Back Bay an extremely fashionable destination for Boston residents and visitors. In fact, it's not uncommon to spot celebrities strolling up and down these picturesque streets.
The Back Bay is famous for its rows of Victorian brownstone homes — considered one of the best-preserved example of 19th-century urban design in the United States. This bustling neighborhood also houses the two tallest members of Boston's skyline, the Prudential Center and the John Hancock Tower, in addition to architectural treasures such as Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library.
The Back Bay is home to two major universities: Berklee College of Music, which occupies a number of older and newly built Back Bay buildings and The Boston Architectural College, on Boylston Street.
The Back Bay is served by several stations on the Boylston Street Subway section of the MBTA Green Line light rail line. From east to west, the stations are Arlington, Copley, and Hynes Convention Center. The MBTA Orange Line stops at Back Bay station.
