The Brick House is part of a fabulous community in Jamaica Plain, MA 02130. We are a block away from popular neighborhood cafes if you prefer that to making your own tea or coffee! Great location in a diverse, artsy neighborhood, near the SouthWest Corridor park, and a stone’s throw to playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, skate park, and a bike path into downtown Boston. Only a 7-minute walk to Stony Brook train station, or a 5-minute walk to Green Street train station on Boston's MBTA Orange line, or a 1-minute walk to The Brewery buildings that host Ula Cafe, Mike’s Fitness JP, Tony Williams Dance Center, Sam Adams Brewery, Bella Luna Restaurant, and The Milky Way Lounge. Also convenient to WikidFit Personal Training, Chilacates, Yachris Market, City Feed, La Rana Rossa, grocery stores, and other attractions such as Hyde Square, Jamaica Pond and local JP businesses. Quick T ride or drive to downtown Boston and the South End. Brookline, Cambridge, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Roxbury, and West Roxbury are also close by.
JP is a fun place to visit and a convenient base for Boston vacationing. The Orange Line is one of the faster lines on the MBTA and brings you downtown in as little as 10 minutes. Easy travels to Back Bay, North Station, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Mass Ave, Harvard Square and pretty much anywhere T accessible including the many local colleges and universities.
The Pierre Lallement Bicycle Path (also called the Southwest Corridor Bicycle Path) is approximately 4.7 miles. The bike path is a major commuting artery that links the neighborhoods in the southwest section of Boston to the downtown and is a popular destination for bicyclists. There are numerous stopping points along the way, including benches, playgrounds, water fountains and sports facilities. The path travels near a variety of good restaurants and stores. Near the Forest Hills end of the path, it is an easy link to Franklin Park and to the Arnold Arboretum. Near Roxbury Crossing, Ruggles and Mass. Ave. it is an easy link to parks and cultural attractions in the Fenway neighborhood and to the South End, Back Bay and Copley Square. Several Hubway bike sharing stations are available near our studio for those interested in biking during their visit.
This is a great location for tourists but also for doctors, researchers and patients needing access to the Longwood Medical Area or families visiting their local college students!
