I think you'll find the majority of black professionals are those who were born and raised here, with just a few who have moved (most likely been transferred or placed) here. Not many blacks form other places stay her after college because they usually have no exposure or attachment to the black community in Boston, let alone the region.

True. Blacks have been fleeing the North for a while now, so I don't anticipate this to change. Not just Boston though.

I live in JP, near the Sam Adams brewery on Boylston st. It's a diverse neighborhood but there is so much street noise. Cars trucks buses passing by every 20 seconds. Every 5 minutes a hispanic person drives by with windows down, blasting super loud hispanic music. So loud it almost gives you a heart attack. It is hard to sleep or relax at home. Maybe this is their culture but I hate it!

There are quiet streets in JP. Just cause one street is loud doesn't mean that they all are.

Many end up staying in Cambridge and the surrounding area as well. Even though this is an expensive area in which to live relative to other parts of the area, having spent time as an undergrad in or graduate school here gives people them the network and inroads to be able to stay in this immediate area. Cambridge is diverse in a way the crosses the typical socioeconomic guardrails.

Ashmont Hill in Dorchester or Cambridge. Try West Cambridge if a more quiet neighborhood is desired. Harvard, Central or Kendall to be more in the middle of the action.
