For anyone moving to Boston, unless you live in downtown Boston, get used to saying/hearing you're going "in town" when you are going into Boston proper. So even if you live close by in JP, or out in the burbs like Saugus or Quincy, you going "in town."

And the current TD Garden, which has changed sponsor names a few times, will always be "The Garden" (where our hockey and basketball teams play, and host to many major events and concerts.)

And the T is what gets you around the area, whether it be by bus, trolley, subway or commuter rail. (Unless you are Ubering).

Not from here but have been here for decades.

I will not call it The Garden, though had been at Boston Garden many, many times. Yet I'd expect a true native to insist on The Garden.

I use TD Garden.

Yet many or all local radio and tv people call it The Garden. So I guess that's how the new generation will learn (or already does (?)) to call it, and not by TD Garden for now or whatever corporate name possibly or eventually will be splashed on.

Somerville is a (recently) very expensive city just 2 miles north of Boston and right next to Cambridge. Which once was a place with a lot of working class Italian and South American immigrants.

It's become very popular among millennials. And getting quite pricey.
