What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About South End Boston

I love that things are close by. I love the coffee shops nearby, I love going to the parks around me on the weekend.

I like the location of my home, as I live near a great grocery store and pharmacy and a 10-15 minute walk to all the city sights I enjoy. It's close to alot of restaurants also.

My neighborhood is very convenient for shopping with schools and large shopping malls nearby, and there are several bars within walking distance, which is a good place for me and my family to take a break.

Close to work. Close to friends. Close to hospital in case of an emergency. Close to public transportation. Close to airport

Being close to the hospital and public transportation and the police department . I love the multi cultural environment
