    Good morning,

    I was reading a thread and I see that you have lived in Boston all your life. I was hoping that you could offer some advice to a NYer looking to make the move to Boston. I am very nervous because of schools and I have nothing real to work off of except a site called greatschools.org and frankly it is not giving a lot of areas that I had considered favorable outlooks on schools. The areas I liked were, Peabody, Salem and Revere - I love the diversity of Revere - being from NY you can imagine but my main concern are schools, safety and commute to downtown Boston. I LOVED the city but everyone is telling me to steer clear. can you please guide me towards what you think may be the best?

    Thank you in advance for your help and have a wonderful day!

    Hi UrbanPeasant,

    I noticed some o your posts on Dorchester. My family and I are moving to the area (bf is attending new england school of law). We've been house hunting for abuot two months and have finally found a home that seems to have everything we needed and then some. However, it's in Dorchester, and so many people seem to warn against that town! The house is located on Sawyer Avenue. Judging from picures (haven't visited yet), the area looks wonderful, but I'm warned agaist that assumption as well. I did find one crime map, and Sawyer Ave seems to be a decent distance from all crimes that had occured as of 2007, and fairly close to Savin Hill and the Ashmont and Adams area many people have referred to as the better parts of town. I was hoping to get your opinion on the Sawyer Ave area though? Thanks!
