Boston is a city of hills. Some hills, like Beacon Hill and Bunker Hill, are famous. Some hills are now gone, including Mount Vernon and Pemberton Hill, which were cut down as part of a long process of development and expansion. Some hills, like Fairmount Hill in Hyde Park and Orient Heights in East Boston, are relatively sleepy enclaves of mostly single family and two-family homes.
Wellington Hill, located near the corner of Blue Hill Avenue and Morton Street, boasts some of the best views of Boston and beyond but you wouldn’t even know it was there unless you grew up there. It really is the last undiscovered hill in Boston. And if you live there, you can get anywhere from there, which wasn’t always the case.
There are lots of public transportation alternatives from Wellington Hill now. There are MBTA buses routes along Blue Hill Avenue or Morton Street including Bus 21, Bus 28, Bus 29, and Bus 31. The Morton Street Commuter Rail Station is 0.6 miles away and Forest Hills Station, which includes connections on the Orange Line and the Commuter Rail, is 1.6 miles away. The new Blue Hill Avenue Commuter Rail Station, scheduled to open in 2019, is also relatively close.
