A storied place for growing families and building businesses.
Also known as the Dix-Vernor corridor, the South End pulses with the feel of making something new. The South End has developed a distinct sense of community and a welcoming neighborhood character where family building and an enterprising spirit come together. Its buildings and businesses reflect signs of the successive waves of immigrants, beginning in the 1920s, who made this district the place where they first set down roots. Today, the South End is home to many Arab American families, including a large Yemeni American community, families who have added their own cultural richness to the community’s layered history — along with sought-after places to shop and eat.
