Boston Redevelopment Authority Map Pages The BRA has a number of pre-made maps that may be useful for general exploration of a neighborhood or district. Color-coded structure and feature types include: types of housing (one and two family, apartments), institutional buidings (churches, hostpitals,and schools), playgrounds and greenspaces, commercial and industrial buildings, and public transit lines. A number of these maps were made in 2000, but are still useful for orientation to a site or neighborhood.
