Hi everybody

I will be moving to work in Boston for few months and I am looking for relatively cheap and safe area to live.

What do you think about Quincy ??
Is it a decent area to live ?

I found this place through the apartment finder sites :
Faxon Commons

anybody has any comments about this place ?

Please I need help because I have to make up my mind very soon .

Thanks for all your help

I notice a lot of people from other areas seem to look primarily in apartment complexes in Boston simply because that's what they're used to. But around here, I'd say the majority of rentals are in 2 or 3-family (or larger) homes. Try craigslist or bostonapartments and you'll get a better picture of the rentals around here.

I used to work in Quincy, I'd say it's safe enough, decent enough. Hard to say if it's right for you because I'm not sure what you're looking for! It's fine, but it wouldn't be my first, second, or 10th choice I don't think.

Also, don't forget the 'T' (MBTA) runs to the north shore and south shore. You can find 'safer' neighborhoods up and down the coast that connect to the 'T' for a lot cheaper!
