Jamaican Plain

It's a community of 11 km2 (4.4 sq. miles) inside Boston, Massachusetts, United Sates. Founded by the Boston Puritans who sought farm land toward the south, Jamaica Plain originally was a portion of Roxbury. It seceded from the town of Roxbury as a portion of the new location of W. Roxbury within 1851, and in 1874, became a portion of Boston as W. Roxbury was annexed to Boston.

"JP" as the locals refer to it, includes a classic "streetcar suburb" which evolved into amongst Boston's most dynamic and diverse communities. The ethnically diverse location is home to young families, many Latinos, as well as an increasing lesbian and gay community. Hyde Square and Jackson Square have substantial Spanish-speaking populations. The mixture of cultures is reflected in area businesses, like the multiple different restaurants that line Centre Street, amongst its main thoroughfares. Visitors and residents appreciate biking, walking, and running alongside Jamaica Pond located on the Jamaica Way, a portion of Boston's Emerald Necklace
