Default Old Boston Townhouses

I know there are neighborhoods where there are rows of townhouses from the early 1900s (around that period) where you almost feel as though your in that time. What exact neighborhood might that be??

Default The South End, not to be confused with "Southie"!

The South End of Boston, just south of the Back Bay, has Victorian era row houses and provides a nice contrast to the bustling business district and office buildings of the Back Bay. My row house was built in the 1890s but is just a block south of the Copley Mall and Marriot Hotel (Copley Sq.). The South End neighborhood has seen much investment in recent years and has some very trendy streets with hot restaurants, etc., and I like to think of it as the Greenwich Village/SoHo equivalent for Boston. It's also diverse, multi-ethnic with mixed incomes (both projects and luxury condos) and more artists' studios than any other neighborhood in Boston. However, you pay for all that historic charm in the heart of Boston: my 640 sq. ft condo is worth almost 400k according to Zillow.Com.
