What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West Fens Boston

I like to walk every morning outside my house with my son and go to the store every morning and buy him many things

Friendly neighborhood, honest neighborhood. Bars are cheap and many different cuisines to choose from when picking a restaurant.

There is beautiful trees during fall, there is restaurants in the neighborhood making it local and as well as its great.

I love living near Fenway park, and therefore don't mind the crowds that come with. There are a multitude of restaurants within walking distance and I love the bar scene.
