What Renters Like and Dislike About Boston University

Are they going to the movies I like my neighborhood I think a public eatery area lots of parks and pools and places to go in the summer too

we have alot of deer that come through the neighborhood. my neighborhood is a stones throw from the beach. Manomet has everything you need including a animal adoption center.

The neighbors are so nice, and you can walk to a shop in at least a half an hour. Everyone is great about this neighborhood.
