The Fort neighborhood in South Mumbai gets its name from Fort George, which the British East India Company built there in 1769. Although the fort was demolished in 1865, a small portion still remains. It has some of the finest Victorian Gothic buildings in the world including Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Railway Station, plus the Town Hall, and institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India and Bombay Stock Exchange as its mentioned in Mumbai - Bombay neighborhoods map . Bordering Fort, Colaba was one of the seven islands, separated by swamps, that originally made up Bombay. Its main thoroughfare, Colaba Causeway, was constructed by the British East India Company in 1838. Rapid development of the neighborhood followed, and it has now morphed into the city unofficial tourist district. The neighborhood continues to have an old-world feel, with predominant Colonial and Art Deco styles of architecture.
Matharpacady village, sequestered in the lanes of Mazgaon, is a heritage precinct that is been home to the city Catholic East Indian community for some 200 years. Mazgaon was another of the seven Bombay islands. The neighborhood really comes alive for Christmas. A few miles away, near Girgaum Chowpatty in South Mumbai, Khotachiwadi as you can see in Mumbai - Bombay neighborhoods map, is another historic village with characterful Indo-Portuguese heritage homes. It also dates back to the late 18th century, when a land owner sold plots to locals. Unfortunately, the neighborhood longevity is limited too, as residents move out and developers are keen to construct high-rise buildings. Mumbai cotton mills proliferated in industrial Lower Parel during the early 1900s, until the Depression of the 1920s and competition from Japan after World War II caused stagnation to set in. Redevelopment of the defunct mills got underway in 1992, as part of a plan to modernize the neighborhood.

Yet, the Portuguese influence is pervasive, and the neighborhood liberal attitudes have made it a firm favorite with the city hipsters and celebrities. Affluent beachside Juhu is another of Mumbai sought-after suburbs and is home to many Bollywood celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan (the Big B). Like many other parts of Mumbai, Juhu was once an island. Its main beach is a suburban version of South Mumbai Girgaum Chowpatty, with rows of snack stalls and a carnival-like atmosphere on Sunday afternoons.
