Close to Boston, Diverse But Congested


Star Rating 1/21/2008
Malden in right on the Orange Line of the MBTA. And even with a walk to the station, you can often get to a Boston job in less than a half hour. It is also wonderfully diverse with many Asian and other ethnicities in the social mix, providing much variety in everything from groceries to restaurants to local festivals and events. But Malden is also a very congested area, with heavy traffic. In addition, because of poor city planning (they plopped the modern City Hall literally in the middle of a major street, blocking off "downtown" Malden from the rest of the city), shopping and social life in the city are not what they should be. Still, it is close in to the city, but still relatively reasonable. Worth a look for those moving to the Boston area and wanting a quick commute and reasonable housing prices.
