Welcome to Bay Village – Real Estate and More
Located in Norfolk County, Bay Village is the smallest of the 23 designated neighborhoods in Boston, MA. The narrow one-way network and irregular grid arrangement of the streets keep Bay Village relatively quiet and pedestrian-friendly, due to limited vehicle traffic. Most of the sidewalks are paved with brick and are lit by gas street lamps at night. Bay Village has been known as the Church Street District, South Cove and Kerry Village. Many of the homes in this area look like smaller versions of Beacon Hill townhouses. This was primarily because the craftspeople who built the Beacon Hill residences lived in this area and built local homes for their own use.
Bay Village is rich with history from homes, that lead to the “Bay Village Historic Designation”, to its residents and events. This was the birthplace of the American writer, Edgar Allen Poe, his parents were both actors in the Theater District, a few blocks away. Bay Village was also the site of the Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire. On November 28, 1942, 492 people lost their lives after being trapped in the nightclub. Its aftermath led to the creation and enforcement of stringent fire codes across the United States, in the hope of preventing other such tragedies.
