Spotlight on Eastie

Boston.com toasts some of East Boston's charms with a story in the Boston Visitors' Guide section that's focused on the neighborhood's active artists' community and a half-dozen local eateries. The piece says, "East Boston has yet to be declared chic — or even bohemian — but its art community has been putting down roots for the last decade." There's also a small slide show.

Thanks for posting this! I really do love living in Eastie, I think it gets a really bad rap, but has so much to offer. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the city.

Jimbo,

Where's the criticism of the Globe here. In the last picture of the slide show they claim the house at the top of the Golden Stairs was home to JFK's grandfather. In fact the family first lived at 151 Meridian and later moved to a home that sat on the plot of land that the Adams' school sits on.

Thanks for pointing that out. I wasn't actually sure where the Kennedy ancestors lived, so I didn't notice.
