What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oak Square Boston

Housing is green. I like going to the ocean. Oh cool another minim sentence count. That's really dumb

I live within 1 minute walking distance of a grocery store which is very convenient and definitely a luxury in the city. There are parks within walking distance as well as basketball and tennis courts when the weather is nicer. It is kid-friendly which is a bonus. There are several great bars nearby as well as restaurants.

The train is outside my tour. You can walk to restaurants and stores. I enjoy braving able to walk to cvs and Starbucks whenever I want. I can easily Uber, take the train or walk to my destination.

I love that I can walk to the grocery store and church. I also like the public transportation available and the nearby park. I enjoy going to the local cafe and restaurant. They have a neighborly feel.

I like a fruit restaurant in the community most, the fruit and many things there are free, but also very delicious, so I like that restaurant very much.

Easy to get to many lines of public transportation. There are many restaurants and shops that are walkable.
