Where We Work: Stony Brook, Jamaica Plain

Jamaica Plain’s Stony Brook neighborhood has enchanted Bostonians for hundreds of years. The area has been sought after by homeowners since the 18th century as a country oasis within just miles of downtown Boston. In 2020 Stony Brook still strikes the ultimate balance between urban accessibility and lush, organic green spaces.

Frederick Law Olmstead paid special care to Jamaica Plain with immense natural sanctuaries like Franklin Park, the Arnold Arboretum—the oldest public arboretum in North America—and Jamaica Pond, all within a stone’s throw of the Stony Brook neighborhood. Despite these spectacular natural landscapes, a 20-minute ride on the nearby Orange Line gets you to the hustle and bustle of downtown Boston.

The Stony Brook neighborhood is actually named for the literal river that used to run above ground in the area. The brook still lives, coursing underground beneath this vibrant community. Residents can bike ride through the Southwest Corridor Park, listen to live music at the classic Midway Café and attend a meeting at the local community center all without leaving the neighborhood. For those who crave the great outdoors but also desire the convenience of urban living, Stony Brook offers a heavenly balance.
