Clean and quiet is the opposite of brighton, head to Brookline

Brookline is great, near Coolidge Corner ideally

You can get really away from the colleges if you go southwest: Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, West Rox, Hyde Park. But beyond jp, it’s hard to get downtown from those places. Most neighborhoods in the downtown area: back bay south end beacon hil north end should be not dominated by college students. Parts of a Dorchester on the red line will give you that too. How old are you?

Eh, I usually go to the airport at 5-6 AM and it takes me 20-30 mins max. But getting downtown requires roughly 45 mins in rush hour

I love living in Brookline! Coolidge corner has a great neighborhood feel with lots of great shops and restaurants and the traders joes is the best! Hop on the T for 10 min and you're back in Boston.

Yes, to clarify I meant ~10 minutes from where I live which is close to St.marys to the office in back bay :) definitely further out if you need to go to the financial district!!

All of Boston is (by definition) “college-y”.

like

But Brighton is fine. I’d recommend being as close to the T as you can be.

like

Based on what you said, recommendations: City: Back Bay, South End (north of Wash) Suburbs Lite: Charlestown, Somerville Brighton is mix of college, recent grads and working class families

like

It’s great. About a 20 mins give or take ride to the airport. Cheap eats, cheaper rent compared to rest of Boston considering the time you’re local.

like

Cambridge/Somerville! imo, best cities to live in (aside from being in Boston south end/back bay). Both are good for post-grads, there’s good restaurants, lots of bars and local breweries and access to the T

Brighton is collegy but close to the city, Brookline, Watertown, South Boston are good options as well

I live in Medford/Somerville area and love it! Close to the airport and near the T.

Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
