Quincy isn't bad but just remember they are going to redesign the whole center. The project is 1 billion..I'm not saying it's bad but if this takes awhile it might be better to go there later.

This is all some very excellent advice. Thanks everyone. The interview process is still ongoing, so we'll see if I end up moving. If so, I'm thinking the Natick area might be nice. Hopefully I can take a weekend to head out there and scout things out.

Thanks again!

I agree that the Red Line might not be ideal. Its still a bit ofa walk from Park Street to Copley in the rain/snow/cold/humid weather and switiching trains gets exhausting when you have to do it every day.

The commuter rail is a nice option if you truly want to save money and live outside the city. Green Line is an option, but the greem line is slow and rickety. Taking the green line West to East is really, really slow and you go through the colleges. Its is not ideal.

The green line from East to West isnt as bad. I might recommend Lechemere at the end of the green in East Cambridge. Its a little cheaper and there is plenty to do.

I might also recommend Jamaica Plain. There is an orange line stop there that goes to Back Bay. Pound for pound, JP has the cheapest rents for real city living. Its a nice, cool, funky little neighborhood outside the colleges and main drags, so the rents are held down because demandis a little slower.

Yes, Albany Street - which is in the South End - is very nice. I can see how you'd think about it.
