What Bert Has To Say About Boston-Cambridge-Newton Metro Area


Boston is widely viewed as the intellectual and historic capital of the United States. It is a cosmopolitan city with a complete set of services, a broad range of amenities, and a rich tradition and culture almost unmatched in the rest of the country. The metro area defined as Boston-Quincy actually includes downtown and areas mostly south of city into Norfolk and Plymouth County. Suburbs to the west and northwest are covered in the Cambridge-Newton-Framingham metro area (see page TK); northern suburbs to New Hampshire are covered in Essex County (page TK).
