Washington Gateway Main Street is a nonprofit organization that promotes & sustains the character, history, and diversity of our South End and Lower Roxbury neighborhood by serving as a resource for and guide to preservation, development, and opportunities that positively impact our neighbors and visitors.

On February 14th Boston Chops hosted Washington Gateway and 30 of our restaurant and retail friends for a discussion with City Council President Michelle Wu and ISD Commissioner Buddy Christopher about the new acoustic music legislation signed by Mayor Walsh in December 2016. Watch the video and believe it! If you are a small business in a commercial district you can have acoustic music in your business. No permits needed! You can read the legislation here. Better yet, join us during Small Business Week (April 30- May 6, aka the start of outdoor dining season) for acoustic music throughout the neighborhood! 

A worker from Project Place's Clean Corners...Bright Hopes program out on a late fall morning. Washington Gateway is contracting with the local social enterprise to have both sides of Washington Street, from Herald to Melnea Cass Blvd, cleaned twice per week. Residents, businesses and visitors can expect to see improved sidewalks, bus stations and trash barrels along the commercial corridor. This is one of several new projects underway at WGMS. Thanks to our generous NeckTies 2016 sponsors we are able to give back to the community even more this year.
