Oh, I was thinking Kendall, thank you.

I don't know who lives in Kendall other than BU/Simmons, etc students. Maybe they don't anymore.

I hate cold weather like jdbjsjhjjaful .... I don't even know if that word exists. I got full scholarship from U Mass Armhest, I didn't go because of the weather. I know it might sound a little silly.

People who got rich when their startup went public. There are a lot of luxury buildings there now. I like that there are a lot more restaurants than there used to be and the Kendall is still a great place to see a move, but I've always found it a bit soulless over there.

That's understandable. But if you plan on driving everywhere, you need to understand that a parking spot smack outside your destination is not the norm. Free parking for apartments in the city isn't really a thing here.

The ones renting, maybe, but most families do own in our neighborhood.

Interesting. I did some digging and the latest census figures show a majority of residents are "never married" and average age of around 30. Very similar to Cambridge overall as well. When you go a few kliks north and west it becomes noticeably more family and marriage heavy (Medford, Arlington, etc.).

Now for my anecdotes vs yours. Lots of child free renters in my hood. Only 4 owners out of the 15 places I know along my street and 1 has kids. The rest are old and established. I foresee many of the younger renters and unmarried couples moving to these more budget and family friendly places a town or two over once they start families. Way too expensive for the average joe unless you qualify for govt benefits (Somerville scores pretty high on unwed and on public assistance as well so that is obviously a big subset).

As for the OP, I'd say Somerville and Cambridge should be pretty high on the list for someone who is a young professional without kids.
