Why would you compare those small historic towns an hour north of Boston to the towns across the river from Manhattan? Those arenít equivalents.

Because those four cities were considered 'beautiful' ... so I simply named a few 'beautiful cities' near Boston
Sorry!

Why not compare Hudson to these suburbs around Boston:

Lawrence
Brockton
Lowell
Southfield
Lynn
Chelsea
Watertown
Taunton
Revere
Everett

Frankly, West Roxbury, MA is an official a section of Boston but should be on the list. I went there to pick up school uniforms every August. Yuck

I didn't think Brockton looked so terrible until a friend said a kid was stabbed around the corner from her tidy house. Watertown and Lynn, on the other hand, are ugly. Let's debate one of these vs. West New York.

This is definitely an odd comparison. But I'd pick Hudson county in a second. And for the record, Bayonne is making a comeback! It may not ever be as popular as JC or Hoboken, but it's getting better.

Why are we even comparing anything to New Jersey? Boston blows even NY out of the park IMO.
