Quincy's access to Boston is good but is an old city and a bit crowded.

Quincy MA - 10/25/2010

Not a very bike friendly city but if you are willing to driver there are biking spots north, west and south of here. Lots and lots of Chinese food places but we have yet to find one that you would go to other than at 2am after a night at the bar. Other restaurants are hit or miss; lots of "grandparent-y" type places and a few decent pubs in the downtown area. There does seem to be a lot of programs for little kids though. I'd choose this city if you really want to be close to Boston without living in the city but there isn't much going on.[read more...]

General Info. - 5/5/2009

We have lived in Quincy, MA for over 20 years. Cost of housing is a bit lower than other Boston close-in suburbs. Public schools are OK, but could be better. Quincy has good access to public transportation. Crime is relatively low, but illicit drug use is increasing, which is fueling an obvious increase in crime. City government is typical for Massachusetts - slow to respond and strongly influenced by patronage.[read more...]

Transportation - 11/17/2005

No need to own a car when you live in Quincy. Public transportation is always close at hand. Remember "Charlie on the MTA?" We do have certain train stops where you also have to pay when you disembark. Busses available at Quincy Center (90 cents). The Red Line subway also makes Quincy Center one of it's stops ($2.50 buys two tokens) for trips to downtown Boston with changes to Logan Airport, New England Aquarium and area beaches.[read more...]
