Things to Do in the West End

The West End neighborhood of Boston was once the most densely populated area of the city, with 174 persons per acre. Notable residents of the old neighborhood include architect Charles Bulfinch, media magnate Sumner Redstone, Lawrence Berk, founder of Berklee School of Music, and actor Leonard Nimoy.

Landmarks include the acclaimed Massachusetts General Hospital and North Station, a transportation hub for Amtrak, Commuter Rail, and two subway lines. TD Garden, New England’s largest sports and entertainment arena, home to the NHL’s Boston Bruins and NBA’s Boston Celtics franchises and host to world-renowned concerts, family shows, and other sporting events, can also be found in the West End.
