Aren't Elmwood, Browncroft and North Winton Village middle class any more? (Don't know, it's my home town but haven't been back there for years)

Really nice pictures of Boston row homes. Reminds me of the first video of "Please don't go girl" by the New kids on the block (who are from Boston). Takes place on one of those blocks of brownstones

When it comes down to it, it's very tough to beat Boston in the man-made beauty department. Places like San Francisco have gorgeous hills and an incredible landscape...but the housing stock in inner-Boston is almost unbeatable.

Im in love with those Boston homes.

I prefer the drama and opulence of Pacific Heights mansions because that's my personality, but the understated elegance of Back Bay is so refined, so quintessentially Boston.

They're both amazing in their own right. The pics you showed of the SF homes earlier are beyond amazing. I love the fact that they're almost like their own estate...yet in the center of one of the main metropolises of the country...you won't find that in the center of any of the major East Coast cities like NYC, Boston, Philly, or DC...it's definitely an amazing and unique trait of San Francisco.

But yea, the brownstones of Back Bay are awesome. The homes I posted of the South End were actually the former servants homes of wealthy Back Bay and Beacon Hill residents. Within the past 50-100 years the neighborhood has become more attractive to the affluent and rowhome-apartments that were once comprised of several residences have been converted into mansions.

I always find it interesting when I'm walking through the South End to think that they were actually built and designed for servants...yet you'd be hard-pressed to find a more attractive urban housing stock in the entire country. I guess it's one example of "they just don't build em like they used to"...
