The West End neighborhood of Boston at one point in time was considered the most densely populated area of the city, with roughly 174 people per acre. West End neighborhood is a great place to live with plenty of attractions nearby along with everything you could need for day-to-day life. Surrounded by the Green Line (Science Park Station) and Red Line (MGH station) you can get from the West End to any area of Boston or outer neighborhoods.
