Boston/Jamaica Plain

Jamaica Plain is a part of the City of Boston. Diversity is the strength of “JP,” as it is lovingly referred to by residents. Every ethnicity, socio-economic stratum, and sexual orientation is well represented in this neighborhood sandwiched primarily between Roxbury and the town of Brookline. The rich diversity in JP has created a strong character of social awareness and tolerance among neighbors and residents.

Get in

By subway

By bus

The 39 Bus follows the same route at the E branch of the Green Line, but continues beyond Heath Street (where the "E" Line ends), up South Huntington Avenue, up Centre Street through "downtown" JP, and ends at Forest Hills.

By bicycle

The Southwest Corridor Park, which begins at Back Bay Station, stretches to Forest Hills and includes one of the best bike paths in the city. The bike path runs above and alongside the underground tracks of the Orange Line. At any point on the bike path, it is possible to leave the path and ride into the neighborhood.
