Alright, fair enough. Guess it's just more what home was to me up there than the specific neighborhood itself.


A Renter's Life in Boston: The Inside Scoop Apartment Therapy Renters Guide

I was pretty excited when I saw this post because I spent three unforgettable years in Boston for school. I was, however, disappointed to see you skip right over Allston. As a Berklee grad, I spent a lot of nights in Allston, and while it's a little rough around the edges, it's got such a great vibe. I lived in Back Bay and you did a decent job of watering down what it consists of, but I don't think you can lump Back Bay with Chestnut hill at all. Chestnut Hill is like stepping into old time Boston, almost more so than the North End, with all those old buildings and shops with hanging signs on red brick buildings. For me, Back Bay is Berklee, all the little authentic asian restaurants (Pad Thai Cafe on Boylston has the best pad thai I've come across yet), Symphony hall, the MFA...more than parks and convenience. Thanks for helping out my Boston nostalgia on my gloomy Missouri afternoon though :)
