Boston East Presents ‘Ten Great Reasons to Love (and Live in) East Boston’


Waterfront, great restaurants and unique cultural amenities are just a few things to love about East Boston

(Boston, Mass. November 2, 2017) – East Boston is one of the City’s hottest and fastest-growing neighborhoods, and Boston East – its newest residential community – is located directly on the waterfront in the heart of it all.

East Boston features a unique mix of great restaurants, arts and cultural amenities, outdoor activities, and outstanding views of the ocean and Boston skyline.

“East Boston is Boston’s hottest neighborhood and one of the best spots for residents and visitors to experience the waterfront and a host of arts and outdoor activities,” said Abby Goldenfarb, a Development Vice President at Trinity Financial. “We’re proud to be a part of this wonderful community and are pleased that Boston East reflects the eclectic, vibrant personality and character of East Boston.”

Located on Boston Harbor and in close proximity to Downtown Boston and the MBTA, Boston East is a boutique, mid-rise residential community that features 200 units, including six artist live-work-sell units. The interiors of Boston East’s common spaces and residential units were created by Cortney and Robert Novogratz – a Los Angeles-based husband and wife design team famous for HGTV’s Home by Novogratz and Bravo’s 9 By Design. The pair has conceived some of the most unique and amazing living spaces across the country.

The thriving community of East Boston is steeped in history, food and culture. For that reason, Boston East has created the Ten Great Reasons to Love (and Live in) East Boston.

1.       Great Restaurants: From the world’s best pizza to meat pies and tacos, East Boston has it all. Perhaps the neighborhood’s most famous restaurant is Santarpio’s Pizza, the winner of numerous awards and rave reviews. Restaurants such as Craft Table & Bar and Cunard Tavern serve fare inspired by local, regional, and even international influences. The Australian-inspired KO Pies offers its signature menu of savory meat and vegetable pies, seafood and seasonal salads. Rino’s Place is the ideal spot for Italian food featuring Chef Anthony DiCenso, who was born and raised in Italy. The Reelhouse, which overlooks the Harbor, recently opened and offers an innovative take on fresh New England fare. And if you’re in the mood for tacos, Taquería Jalisco has you covered. They even deliver!

2.       Home of the Best Cider House Brewery: Cider lovers across Massachusetts, New England and beyond enjoy Downeast Cider House, founded by longtime college buddies Ross Brockman and Tyler Mosher. Only fresh-pressed juices and pure, natural ingredients are used in their cider, and patrons can enjoy everything a wide range of blends, including cranberry and pumpkin.

3.       Unique Arts and Culture: East Boston boasts a thriving commitment to the arts with many gallery exhibits, theater opportunities, movies, and music. The Atlantic Works Gallery and the East Boston Artists Group– located next to Boston East – showcases work from local and regional artists. The Boston East community also features an onsite art gallery and affordable artist live-work-sell units. The Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) is also planning a major expansion on the waterfront in East Boston that will offer free admission. Events such as the ZUMIX Radio Block Party and weekly multicultural Friday films are commonplace.

4.       The Atlantic Ocean: The East Boston waterfront offers some of the most beautiful views in the entire city. It also features Constitution Beach – a hidden waterfront gem that is a popular spot for swimming. Boston East takes advantage of these gorgeous views with large, floor-to-ceiling windows and ample outdoor space with multiple patios, decks and a large rooftop lounge. Residents will also be able to utilize the Harborwalk and an onsite kayak and paddleboard launch.

5.       Beautiful Parks and Reservations: East Boston’s Belle Isle Marsh Reservation – the largest remaining, in-tact salt marsh system in Boston – is a beautiful spot to observe nature and wildlife without leaving the city. The newly-reopened Bertulli Park features a pedestrian promenade, a plaza, and a veteran’s memorial. The park is also ADA compliant. Visitors can also take in breathtaking views of the Boston skyline from Piers Park. Don’t forget to check out Condor Street Urban Wild, a former marine industrial site, and the waterfront LoPresti Park and Veteran’s Park is just a block away.

6.       Fun Outdoor Opportunities: The waterfront area has also recently been discovered by sport and fitness fanatics hoping to take advantage of the beautiful views and outdoor spaces. The Piers Park Sailing Center – a nonprofit organization – offers sailing lessons to kids, families and adults of all ages along with Harbor cruises and other youth programming. Boston Scuba offers classes and dive charters. Additionally, the recently opened “The Point” is the first Barre and yoga studio in East Boston and it offers bar, Pilates, and yoga classes.

7.       Rich History: East Boston has a vibrant history centered on the water, its famous marinas and shipyards and welcoming immigrant community. The Kennedy family once lived in East Boston and in 1954, John F. Kennedy visited the neighborhood with his wife Jackie. In a famous photograph, Kennedy is shown waving to a crowd in front of Santarpio’s Pizza. Boston East’s design – done by celebrity designers Cortney and Robert Novogratz – reflects the many influences from Boston’s rich history and the nearby marinas and shipyards in a non-traditional way.
