Downtown Boston is the commercial hub of New England. The area includes the Financial District and Government Center. One of the oldest cities in the country, you'll find historic buildings, like Faneuil Hall alongside modern buildings.
Central to everything in Boston, Downtown is served by most of the MBTA lines at Downtown Crossing. The Orange line, Red line, and Silver line all stop at this station. To the Northwest, at the corner of Boston Common, Park Street Station is served by the Red line. As you move out of the Financial District and into the Government Center, the Blue and Orange lines both pick up at State Street Station. And the Green and Blue lines cross at the Government Center Station. This station is across the plaza from Boston City Hall. Finally, Haymarket, furthest to the North, joins the Green line and Orange line. This is also where you'll find Boston Public Market. Downtown Boston is bounded to the north by the famed North End. Beacon Hill is located due west of Downtown and the West End is to the northwest. South of this area, you'll find Chinatown and the Leather District. And making up the Eastern border is the Boston Waterfront.
