Review of Boston, Massachusetts

Boston Is Not For Everyone
Star Rating - 4/23/2019
I've lived in Boston 11+ years. Pros: history; Victorian and Colonial architecture; healthcare quality and options; cultural and economic opportunity; smart people move to Boston; Liberals move to Boston. Cons: provincial (the people who were born and raised); orthodox (intellectually and imaginatively less open in approach and view than the west coast); visually congested and thickly settled (few vistas/open spaces); the Charles River divides the city (it's not fun getting from one side to the other); driving (drivers are sloppy and the roads screwy with really poor signage); winters (when the snow piles up during a bad winter, it gets claustrophobic and ice is treacherous); people are less friendly than just about anywhere else in the USA.
