Union Square Main Streets works collaboratively to actively support a vibrant neighborhood by preserving the character and advancing the economic strength of the Union Square business district and community.

By highlighting the artistic and ethnic strengths of the neighborhood we seek to drive commercial and economic development.  We celebrate food — local and international, our own eclectic creative sensibilities, and the dense, unique fabric of our New England square that blossomed before there was such as thing as smart growth.
