What Renters Like and Dislike About Central Boston

I like being near a hospital if I need to see a doctor. I like that there are several restaurants within walking distance. I like that there is an arena that hosts events nearby.

Neighborhood is historic. Lots of great restaurants, shops, public parks within short walking distance.
