Boston’s Fenway and Kenmore


Central to Fenway is the Emerald Necklace, a system of parks that wind through the city and was a result of a plan to reshape the Charles River basin, primarily in the mud flats between Brookline and Boston. Over the years as Boston developed and the use of automobiles grew, sections of the necklace have been redesigned, and salt water no longer reaches the Fens, but many of the broad, arching bridges that aim to keep with Olmstead’s initial vision remain. One of the largest neighborhoods of the city, the Fenway neighborhood is the bustling area that many of the local universities and colleges call home. Northeastern University, Boston University, Emerson College, Simmons, Wheelock College, Mass College of Pharmacy, the Berklee College of Music and the Boston Conservatory of Music, Massachusetts College of Art and Wentworth Institute of Technology, are all or at least partially located in the Fenway/Kenmore area. With such an eclectic group of students in the area, Fenway and Kenmore Square offer many diversions and entertainment options. Behind the home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park, are the clubs of Landsdowne Street. Along some of the other main streets which include Brookline Avenue, Beacon Street, Boylston Street, and Huntington Avenue, there are many shops and restaurants. Located in the southwest corner of Fenway is the Longwood Medical Area. Longwood is home to some of the leading hospitals in the world, including The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. For art lovers, Fenway is also the location of The Museum of Fine Arts and the beautiful flower-filled courtyard of the Isabella Stuart Gardiner Museum. Further east towards Downtown Boston is Symphony Hall, home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops.
