The Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood is the home of Fenway Park, the famous Citgo sign, Kenmore Square, Northeastern University, much of Boston University, Berklee College of Music, The Boston Conservatory, Emmanuel College, Massachusetts College of Art, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Simmons College, and the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum Museum of Fine Arts.
Fenway Park is the home ballpark of the Boston Red Sox baseball club. The park, the oldest of all Major League Baseball stadiums still in use, opened in 1912.
Fenway is a neighborhood bounded on the south by Mission Hill, the Back Bay Fens and Columbus Avenue, on the north by the Mass Pike, and on the west by Mission Hill. Fenway is one of the last middle class neighborhoods left in downtown Boston. The neighborhood almost entirely comprised of five- to six-story walk-up apartment buildings, with small, independently owned shops scattered throughout. The neighborhood feels somewhat isolated from the rest of downtown due to the large park and major highway that act as the neighborhood’s boundaries. With its proximity to major parks, Back Bay, Boston University, Northeastern University and the Longwood cultural district, Fenway may be Boston’s last untapped real estate gem. Led by the revitalization of Kenmore Square, the Fenway is definitely Boston’s next happening neighborhood. Here, you’re just a short walk from some of Boston’s best known restaurants, museums, parks theaters and nightlife. New real estate projects, such as Trilogy, a new luxury high rise rental apartment building are beginning to appear in the Fenway area.
Kenmore is located north and west of Fenway, and shares many of the same attributes of Fenway. Fenway Park is in fact located in Kenmore, right across the Mass Pike from Kenmore Square. The area is however less isolated and has a slightly more upscale atmosphere due to its proximity to the suburb of Brookline. Many students from nearby Boston University and Northeastern University reside in the neighborhood. The area is almost entirely brick, walk-up buildings and brownstone townhouses, although over the last 20 years almost every residential building in Kenmore has been purchased by Boston University and turned into dorms, especially in the Audubon Circle area between Beacon Street and Commonwealth Avenue.
