The Leather District is a small neighborhood of Boston near South Street, located between the Financial District and Chinatown. It gets its name from the dominance of the leather industry in the late 19th century.
The area was at first developed as a residential area, but became the center of the city's leather industry after the Great Boston Fire of 1872, which devastated the city's business district.
Boston’s Leather District is the most homogeneous 19th-century commercial district in the city, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
Since the 1980s, the Leather District has grown as a mixed-use area, and it is now home to a variety of commercial and residential tenants.
Occasionally referred to as the "LD", this neighborhood has a lot of charm for its size. The area features a mix of restaurants, ranging from a dearly beloved 24-hour diner to more upmarket places that serve a range of international cuisines. Artisanal coffee shops and trendy bars cater to the residents, downtown workers and to the South Station rail commuters.
The Leather District’s proximity to South Station makes it easy to get around the city, and to go further afield - a factor also helped by the LD’s proximity to the Boston Greyhound Station and Logan International Airport.
