I've heard both Pedroia and Varitek have units in 1330.

When I lived there, these players also lived there during the season: Pedroia, Papelbon, Jed Lowrie, Jason Bay, George Kataras (sp?), and Ellsbury.

Commuting to Northeastern from 1330 is easiest by walking, bike, or car. I guess you could take the 47 bus too, but that isn't very convenient. The walk is about 15 minutes through the Fens. My recommendation: Get an old, used car, register it at 1330 and get your Fenway/Kenmore resident parking sticker from city hall. Many of the streets around Northeastern are Fenway/Kenmore also, so you can drive back and forth when it's raining.

As far as rowdiness goes, it's been 5 years since the Sox won the WS and there hasn't been any craziness since then really. In 2004 and 2007 there was some vandalism in the area.

Don't bother getting Sox season tickets. You can find other 1330 residents selling their tickets at face value frequently. The leasing office also gives tickets away sometimes too. There's also the scalp-free ticket window on Landsdown Street that I always had luck with.

The rooftop pool is the best amenity.
How is living in that particular building? Parking garage ok/jammed? Off hand do you remember the size dogs they allow? Is the management company easy to deal with? Neighborhood got enough to do outside of Redsox games?

I know the area had a fire a couple years ago and lost 4-5 restaurants/shops but they recently re-opened so that should boost the amount of local spots to hangout.

Papelbon just listed his 3mm apartment on Beacon street....he won't be needing a Boston apartment anymore!

Living at 1330 was fine. It was an easy commute for me into South Station from the Yawkey stop on the commuter rail. I parked my car on the street because I had a Fenway/Kenmore resident sticker, paying $200+/month to park in the garage is nuts. Parking and traffic in the area before and after Sox games is a hassle typically. I've seen all types of dogs there, big and small. As long as you pay the monthly fee for it, they'll let it slide. The leasing office was fine for the most part, they lost my rent check one month, but otherwise no memorable complaints about them. There's plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance.

They are building two new buildings (a Target and an apartment building) next to and across from 1330 in the near future. The noise from these projects is going to be great when they start at 7 am.

See, I said that too. Big issue in downtown. Blasting horns, hooting and hollering partiers at night, car alarms, jack hammers - Oy Vey! That is a noisy intersection for sure. Double check that issue. Living OFF the main drag so you can sleep before 230am is something to consider.

Thanks............new construction will be a noisy hassle for sure!
