Boston has one of the largest "old" Diaspora communities in the United States. The suburb of Watertown is the focal point of the local Armenian culture.

An Armenian group has been trying to create an Armenian Heritage park at the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway under construction.

Armenian Community

Watertown is the center of the Greater Boston Armenian community, and is home to the eastern United States headquarters of many Armenian community organizations. The Hairenik Association is located there, as is the Baikar Association. The Armenian Library and Museum of America (ALMA) is located in Watertown, and the Armenian General Benevolent Union and the Armenian Cultural and Educational Center both run day schools in the city.
