The Leather District, located between Chinatown, Downtown/Financial District and South Station, has emerged as a distinct Boston neighborhood in recent years. It is a small, yet growing sub-neighborhood of Chinatown. Between Dewey Square and Kneeland Street, the nine-block Leather District is known for its 19th century brick warehouses that operated as leather factories. Recently, many of these warehouses have been transformed into loft-style residential and commercial spaces, combining historic character with modern 21st century amenities. Within steps, you will find great restaurants, cafés, shopping and boutiques, as well as the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, which offers abundant open, green space and art for both locals and non-locals to enjoy. This location boasts easy access to public transportation, commuter rail and highways, and walking distance to many of Boston’s other neighborhoods and attractions, making this neighborhood a desirable location in which to live.
