What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West End 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.

There is both a Baptist university and the city high school in my neighborhood. There is a strip mall nearby with local businesses that don't seem to be very successful so there is high turnover there. I don't like going anywhere because the behavior of local drivers is extremely reckless. I have been in five accidents in 19 years that weren't my fault.

I like that there are stores that are walking distance. We have food places that are close. We have grocery stores that are close as well.

Everyone are super friendly , kids play outside , there's no fighting , loud music , no speeding , no arguing everyone just respects everyone , here where i stay

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

I love the peace and quite around here. Its a good place to let my kids out to play without having to worry about them
