East Boston, also known as “Eastie”, has an eclectic mix of residents. Originally a center of shipbuilding, East Boston has always been a neighborhood of immigrants. Today its population is full of diversity, which is also reflected in the different neighborhoods.

The housing is East Boston is a mixture of old and new, which includes many restored triple-deckers. Many of these older homes have been built prior to 1980 and are at risk of containing asbestos. If your house was built or renovated before the mid-1980s, it is likely to contain asbestos cement building materials. Asbestos only becomes a serious health hazard when it is distrusted. Exposure to airborne asbestos particles is the greatest risk to health. When the asbestos fibers become airborne you may inhale particles. These particles can remain in the lungs and, over time, can cause serious illness. If you plan on renovating your home and it was built prior to 1980 you are required to test for asbestos prior to any renovations. In fact, per regulations, any building built in 1980 or before all building materials that are scheduled to be demolished, renovated or disturbed in any way must be tested for asbestos content before proceeding.
