A little something on street naming in Jamaica Plain: If you walk around the former brewery area of J.P. you can find many streets that were named in recognition of the German immigrants who once populated the neighborhood in the 19th century: Germania, Bismarck, etc. If you walk around Sumner Hill, you will find the area's early Southern inhabitants represented: Carolina and Newbern. So, a street that represents the large Hispanic and Caribbean may be called for!


Great post. Thanks for checking in on vacation.
