About About the Boston WikiProject[edit]

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to the Hub of the Universe, Boston, and several of the cities surrounding Boston. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the Discussion Page, see the Task list below or just start editing articles and link them to the project using the {{WikiProject United States|Boston=yes}} banner.

Boston Neighborhoods[edit]

Looking for action items on the Neighborhoods and discussion as to if they should be separated into major neighborhoods and sub-neighborhoods. For instance Kenmore Square, Fens and Fenway-Kenmore could all be considered part of the Fenway of which there is no section. Also should clean up Boston Neighborhoods adding a quick blurb about each section.
