Our Neighborhood

The IFH is conveniently located in Boston’s historic Back Bay. The Back Bay is one of Boston’s safest neighborhoods and has been described as a “walker’s paradise.” We are just steps away from the famous Newbury Street shopping district, Charles River Esplanade and historic Copley Square. The famous Beacon Hill, Public Gardens and Boston Common are just a short walk down Commonwealth Avenue. It is truly an ideal location for students and researchers to spend their days studying hard and their nights and weekends exploring the city and enjoying all that Boston has to offer!
