I dont really think our crime rate is as much lower compared to the other major cities as we tended to think. Yeah there are a few i have no doubt we are lower than but its been overhyped. I dont think boston and chicago are much more dangerous for instance...

Ohh and another point I wanted to make is that Boston isnt boring or dead. Some of you speak in generalities too much. Its all relative to your tastes. Some people like the smaller city feel.

Maybe for my grandma, but I won't go for that. ................
This might be one of the most inaccurate and uninformed posts I've ever seen on CD.

Boston a city of elderly ? The median age is about 31 as opposed to 36 in NYC. Boston is overrun with college students.

Boston "conservative" ? The city hasn't elected a Republican mayor since the 1920's! It is arguably the most liberal city in the most liberal state in the country !

Sorry they didn't like your art there.

I agree with Boston but not Chicago, with Chicago I can definitely say has much worse crime not just today but historically
