The fragrance of piping-hot breads and pastries fills the air in Roslindale Square early every morning. Bakeries abound here: at last count there were seven in and around the village. They reflect the ethnic mix of the neighborhood, with delicacies rooted in Greek, Arab, Italian, Spanish, and American cultures. Around the vigorous commercial area of Roslindale Square, Victorian residences line the hills and dales. Generous green spaces and narrow streets keep traffic from overwhelming the village. Topping one of the hills amid these quiet enclaves, you’ll gain an astoundingly beautiful view of downtown Boston over a sea of green trees. You’ll also view a cornucopia of Roslindale’s architectural highlights, which reflect a diversity of styles and influences fitting for this multi-ethnic community.
