City of Neighborhoods

March 22, 2014 – August 22, 2014

Central Library, Norman B. Leventhal Map Center

 

During the last decade, Boston as a whole has become younger, and more racially and ethnically diverse. However, the neighborhoods that make up Boston often tell their own unique stories of diversity and change.

This exhibition compares the neighborhoods of today’s “new” Boston with those of 100 years ago. The 45 photos, objects, and maps, many of which are based on recent census data, show us where newer immigrant groups have settled and how the streets and features of a neighborhood reflect who lives and works there.

 

Durante la década pasada, Boston en conjunto se ha vuelto más joven y más diversa en lo racial y étnico. Sin embargo, las ciudades que componen Boston a menudo cuentan sus propias historias exclusivas de la diversidad y el cambio.

Esta exposición cuenta la historia de un “nuevo” Boston mirando a la ciudad en general y a las comunidades singulares de manera individual. Las 45 fotografías, objetos y mapas, muchos de los cuales están basados en los datos del censo reciente, nos muestran donde los nuevos grupos de inmigrantes se han establecido y cómo las calles y las características de una ciudad reflejan quién vive y trabaja allí.
