Live just across the water from central Boston, in a timeless neighborhood full of waterfront retreats and popular eateries
Located right across the harbor from downtown, East Boston has a spirit all its own. Proudly called “Eastie” by locals, the area’s easy-going residential feel is perfect for students. You can find a quiet place to study everyday, but when you need a taste of big city life you can jump on the subway or climb aboard a ferry to get right to the heart of the action.
When you live in East Boston, the water is everywhere you look. You can capture the essence of the city’s maritime past and present with a visit to Piers Park or HarborArts gallery. Afterwards, walk over to KO Catering and Pies to enjoy affordable Australian eats while kicking back on the outdoor patio.
Get a feel for authentic Boston charm with a visit to Santarpio’s Pizza, a local favorite that dates back to 1933. For a taste of traditional Mexican fare, take a seat inside the cozy and bright Angela’s Café. Follow your meal up with a group outing to test your skills at candlepin bowling, a uniquely New England tradition that you can play at Central Park Lanes.
When it’s time for class, grab a cup of coffee and jump on the Blue Line – the subway takes you right to Suffolk University. You’ll also find that it’s easy to transfer to numerous schools around Boston and Cambridge – Harvard Square is just 40 minutes away. When you come back home, take a stroll along the waterfront to catch a glimpse of Boston’s dramatic skyline as it begins to light up for the evening.
