Jamaica Plain, or “JP” to locals and residents, is the best of both worlds: it has the beautiful atmosphere of a suburban town as well as a quick commute to downtown Boston. It is close to the colleges and universities of Boston, as well as all of the commerce centers and hospitals of Longwood Avenue. Many homes and older, historical commercial buildings are being converted into condominium buildings and lofts. It is a fantastic place to own property, as it is one of the most up and coming Boston neighborhoods.
