Overview of West Roxbury

Located in the Boston, MA neighborhood locals like to call "Southy," the area known as West Roxbury is one of Masschussetts' finest communities. Once home to a Bohemian, burgeoning population, the tree-lined streets and single family homes in this charming neighborhood are gaining in popularity.

Many people who live in West Roxbury apartments for rent commute to downtown Boston in cars for work, according to City-Data, giving it a true suburban feel in the middle of a booming metropolis. This area is also home to many local eateries and commercial establishments that give it a small-town atmosphere.
