Located just south of Chinatown, the Leather District is a small neighborhood comprised of mostly brick, multi-level buildings primarily built for textile, leather or fur merchants. Many boutique indie coffee shops and eateries inhabit this small patch of Boston. South Station, Boston’s largest transportation hub, is located on the southern edge of the Leather District. Numerous options include Amtrak, multiple bus lines and the MBTA Red line. Access to Mass Pike and I-93 is right in the neighborhood and, as a little secret, the airport HOV lane is located right off Lincoln St. slipping you into Logan Airport in under 10 minutes.
