There’s nothing ordinary about Jamaica Plain, or “JP” as it’s called, a dynamic Boston neighborhood located southwest of downtown.

The commercial district, along Centre and South streets, reflects Jamaica Plain’s eclectic community of artists, writers, musicians, activists, young families, and indie-business owners. Fine dining and casual restaurants serve foods of Cuba, Scotland, India, Lebanon, Cambodia, Japan, and other international fare. Boutiques sell everything from kitchen gadgets to funky vintage attire to one-of-a-kind artisan crafts.

Easily accessible by car, bus, bike, or MBTA, this historic neighborhood is part of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace, a seven-mile series of contiguous parks designed in the late 19th century where residents and visitors enjoy biking, walking, and running.
