Boston: dirty, deteriorating infrastructure, mean, - 5/7/2013
I have lived in Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, Washigton DC, and have to say living in Boston has been an education on what I DO NOT want.
At first I was excited moving to a city with a wealth of history and a history of wealth. Boston has played a major role in America, but its hay days are long over.
With horrible government, weak mayors, race relations gone to hell, and lacking leadership for business and industry, today, Boston is filled with ageing infrastructure (bridges and roads are the worst in the nation), the worst drivers ever, poor schools, and the people that are inward looking and selfish.
I have never lived in a city which is dirtier and were people living in the city have to deal with so many issues that degrade their quality of life. If you buy property in Boston, be sure to chain and bolt down anything in your yards, or visible from the street.
I live in what could be called a re-emerging neighborhood with homes, gaining in value and Read More

Is Boston nicer than other major cities? - 4/22/2012
Tow days ago, I moved to Boston area with excitment to learn about the city and people. So far, I have encountered people on the streets and the hotel that I am staying and they have been either mean or offensive. For instance, at the I-95, when I stoped to yield to the traffic before I entered the I-95 people in cars behind me started to shout and stuck their arm out of their cars giving me obscene gustures. I was shocked that people get outraged so easily for me observing traffic rules. By the way, I drive a Z4 BMW and don't consider myself a sluggish driver. I have a speeding tickets to provit too. Another example, at the hotel the the front desk clerk yelled at me when I informed him about the broken refregirator in my room. There are a few other similar examples which I won't bore you with. I am looking for better encounters in Boston. I am sure there are nicer people in this Read More

good times city living - 12/22/2011
I moved to the South End sector of the city 10 years ago after living i the suburb of Norwell for 15 years. I am close to everything so very walkable for everything I do. I love my commute which means walking across the street to work! The city is very financially sound which is a big plus Read More

Interesting place to live - 12/6/2011
Boston is small but big.One can walk or take public transport everywhere. History, museums and, of course, sports. Lots and lots of educational opportunities. Easy to get in and out of with respect to travelling in the nuS or overseas. The airport is easily accessible by subway. There are outdoor activities for all seasons like skiing, boating, golf tennis and woods to explore.Read More

Ahhhhh, Boston - 10/23/2011
Boston, in my opinion is truly one of the greatest cities in the country, if not world. Boston is drenched in history, and is full of creative and inspiring minds. Yes, Bostonians may come off as rude at first, but once you get to know them, they will be some of your most loyal friends. Boston has a sense of community unrivaled by even my rural town in Virginia. The drivers, by all accounts, are as crazy and as insane as many say they are. My road tip? Be aggressive. Letting others cut you off, or using your turn signal is a sign of weakness all throughout Massachusetts. The food here is astonishing and you will never run out of things to do. get sick of the city? It is a short hour and 45 minute drive out to Amherst where you can hike, bike and Read More

Not a comfortable place to live - 6/23/2011
Look, here's the real scoop on Boston. I've lived here for 5 years, moved here from the South. also lived in DC and NYC. Boston is, yes, VERY cold. If you have a car and aren't able to get it covered, prepare to spend hours every winter shoveling. Also, you need to know Bostonians are extremely POSESSIVE of "their" parking spots. Prepare to see random chairs and trashcans on the CITY PUBLIC street. People want to reserve "their" spot, even DAYS, WEEKS after a snow fall. One guy on my street in Jamaica Plain has his trash can out there almost YEAR ROUND. It's so difficult b/c I do home visits for my job (I'm a family counselor) and I can drive down a street and I have to park blocks away b/c people are unecessarily possessive. They will SLASH your tires, key you, so something if you MOVE "their" chair.. I am NOT kidding. My dad was visiting a while back and moved a chair and he got a note in red lipstick warning him not to park there!! Also, I think Bostonians are rude on the Read More

Abundance of culture and history - 5/17/2011
Boston is a city you can never get bored with. You could spend years visiting museums, historical sites, Universities, and unique shops. The city if full of culture! And, full of things to do! Shopping, nightlife, organizations to join, the list goes on and on. I have returned many times and still have so much to do and see. Read More
