Few neighborhoods in America can trace their roots to the 1600s or claim the distinction of holding the first town meeting in this country. This somewhat densely populated part of Boston has had its economic ups and downs over the centuries and now solidly lags the rest of the city in household income. Still, rents are low in ‘Dot,’ as the area is known, and there’s easy access to public transportation throughout the area. At $289,482 for an average listed home, according to Trulia, it’s easy to see why interest is building in living in this community.
