I am seriously thinking about relocation to Boston. I've lived in NY all my life...and I'm tired of living here.

I live in Bedford-Stuyvesant (aka Prison) and the place is overrun with crime.
I've always wanted to move out-of-state, but never had a solid plan...until after New Years Eve...when some idiot decided to start shooting...out of the front door (I live on the first floor). It was too close for comfort.

After that, I immediately decided to make plans for relocation.

Which neighborhoods would best for me to move to?

I want to rent out a studio or 1 bedroom apartment. I plan on going to college, so I'd like to know of colleges or universities in the area.

I need to know as much as I can about Boston. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Please be more specific about your question. You are assuming people know what living in Bedford-Stuyvesant is like and the kind of living condition you want.

Anywhere is Boston should be fine when compare to NY. It is so small. There were only 75 murders last year in Boston. I suggest you look at some of the previous post in the forum.

Check out Craigslist so you have an idea about the rent.

I think there are over 60 colleges within 50 miles of Boston. Take you pick. From Harvard, MIT, Boston U, Boston College to junior college, to community college. It depends on your interest.
