Downtown Lynn is conveniently located along the MBTA Newburyport/Rockport Commuter Rail Line, well-served by MBTA buses, and is in close proximity to Routes 1A, 129, and 107. Downtown Lynn is nine miles from Logan International Airport and is about 5 miles from Wonderland MBTA Station which connects to Blue Line subway service. It is a small part of Lynn's "Burned District", a large area of the downtown that was destroyed by fire in 1889. One of the first buildings built after the fire, the Bergengren Block, stands at the corner of Union Street and Central Square. It also includes the Mowers' Block, listed on the National Register in 1982.
Lynn's revitalization has been bolstered by the city's emergence as a center of creative placemaking activity. In 2017, swaths of the city's downtown were transformed by a series of large-scale murals, which were painted on buildings by local, national, and international artists, as part of the city's inaugural Beyond Walls festival. Light-based interventions, including projections onto High Rock Tower, the installation of vintage neon signs on downtown buildings, and large-scale LED-illuminations of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority rail underpasses bisecting Lynn's Downtown, also are being deployed. In 2017, Mount Vernon Street, in the core of the downtown Central Square area, began to host block parties, food trucks, and other special events. Downtown Lynn has a burgeoning restaurant, arts, and theater scene, which will be bolstered by the Downtown Lynn Cultural District established in 2011.
