Back Bay is one of the major neighborhoods of Boston in Fallout 4.


The following section is transcluded from Boston. To modify, please edit the source page.

Originally a tidal bay, Native Americans built fish weirs here, by 1892 however a filling project would completely fill the area. The project was the largest of a number of land reclamation projects which, beginning in 1820, more than doubled the size of the original Shawmut Peninsula.[1]

This neighborhood was once known for its numerous brownstones — considered one of the best preserved examples of 19th-century urban design in the United States — as well as numerous architecturally significant individual buildings, and cultural institutions. This however didn't stop new construction, such as Trinity Tower dominating its skyline. Now the streets and alleyways are home to roving bands of raiders, ferals, and packs of wild dogs.[2]

    Back Bay was once known for its numerous brownstones of architectural significance. It is now dominated by the Trinity Tower skyscraper, an immense building constructed close to the old church and public library. Now the streets and alleyways are home to roving bands of Raiders, ferals, and packs of wild dogs. The tower still stands, which is more than can be said for another skyscraper, which has half toppled into the Dartmouth Professional Building. Keep going south to reach a Raider tenement block stronghold of Layton Towers. Super Mutants have a powerful grip on this part of the city, too, decorating the Wilson Atomatoys Corporate HQ and Trinity Tower with meat bags and bloody spikes."
