Charlestown is the second oldest neighborhood in Boston. The quiet neighborhood is primarily residential with a handful of restaurants and smaller retail centers spread across the area. Charlestown is slightly removed via the Charlestown Bridge across the Boston Harbor, which connects to the North End and offers residents easy access to the Financial District and downtown.
The MBTA operates a ferry that transports residents from the Navy Yard to Long Wharf. There are multiple full-service condominium buildings in the Navy Yard, including Flagship Wharf, Parris Landing, and Starboard.
