So I've viewed a number of rooms in and around Boston over the past month. I found most on Craigslist.

After spending time in every Boston neighborhood, Arlington, Brookline, Cambridge, and Newton, I've decided that I want to live in...Brookline! I'm loving Washington Square!

Now if only I could find a room...

You made the same choice I would have! Washington Square is great, as is the whole stretch of Beacon St. between there and Kenmore. Good luck finding an apartment!

It only gets dicey in Brookline if you have a car since you can't park overnights on the street.

I lived in that area of the Fenway off St. Mary's St. (which is technically Brookline lol) and I was paying $675 with a roommate. Granted it was a basement unit, but I kind of liked that actually, eccentric lil scamp that I am

That's my favorite section of town to live in. It's close to everything, tons of options for public transportation, and it's actually reasonably priced. I'd recommend it to anybody. I did not, however, have a car. That might be a deal breaker for others.
