Which Boston Neighborhood Do You Belong In?
When you live in Allston-Brighton, you’ll really feel alive. Your downstairs neighbor’s jam band may rehearse late into the night, and the college kids might loiter, but you’ll love the vibe. On sunny mornings, you’ll take a walk in Ringer Park before grabbing a coffee and perusing used furniture on Brighton Ave. Embrace the chaos!
You are a true Bostonian. When people talk about Boston, they’re really talking about you. So pahk yah cah, but definitely not in Harvard Yard.
You’re such a warm spirit! In between jogs around the lake and community events, you’ll still find time to enjoy the company of your neighbors. Plus, you know the best-kept secret: that the Orange Line is actually where it’s at. *wink*
Hey dude, what’s happening? You already know, because you’re totally on top of the latest scene. Your nights will be spent bopping from The Field to The Burren to Ana’s for a late-night burrito, and your days will happen in one of the many squares, whiling away the hours on your laptop while you sip cold-brew coffee. Live it up.
With your sweet view of the city (minus all the clutter), you’ve found one of Boston’s hidden gems. Unlike most sad commuters, you whiz into work on the gorgeous Blue Line with little to no trouble. People WILL ask you to pick them up from the airport, but don’t let it get you down — the benefits far outweigh the low-flying planes.
Can we pull you away from your brownstone for a second? Because we’ve got a play to catch, a day to spend shopping on Newbury, and a beautiful evening planned on The Common. Your life in the South End/Back Bay will be nothing less than magical.
SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS. That’s all you think about, and you couldn’t be in better company. You can grab some beers at the Cask ’n Flagon before you catch the game, and it’s all within a two-mile radius of your apartment. You’ll spend nights at the Pour House and days playing Frisbee by the river. Go get ‘em.
You’re family oriented, and Charlestown — the oldest neighborhood in Boston — is the perfect place to start your brood. The kids will love playing little league, and you’ll love cheering them on. Plus, no neighborhood in the city has cuter houses than yours!
You understand the values of hard work and family. You love watching small businesses grow, and you’ve been shopping at the same place since you were 13. Your neighborhood has a rich history and really, really good food (#humblebrag). So get ready for nightly cookouts, endless fireworks, and dancing to all kinds of music.
