Hi, I'm looking to move to Boston by June. So far, I have only seen one apartment in person that is churchpark. I only know the others by passing by, and through the internet such as the avalon or archstone Boston commons.

I am a foreigner (Asian), so I am looking for a safe place with good and short (20 mins or less) connection to BUMC. Proximity to necessities will also be very important as I would not be likely to venture so far so often. I will not have a car as well.

I've heard that backbay and areas around prudential to be safe, with good connection to BUMC. Does anyone have any opinion on the apartments I mentioned above (churchpark, avalon and archstone Boston commons)? Or does anyone have any other suggestions?

I am looking for a one-bedroom, with a budget approximately 2500-2600. It can be more or less, but not by much.

Thank you very much!

I worked at BUMC for 7 years--welcome back to the area! You would be in great shape with any of these options--compare the amenities, but they're often mentioned in the same breath. James Court is also worth a look. Ideally, you would want to be in the South End for the shortest commute (or even to walk to BUMC). What a great time of year to move back to Boston!

Thanks! I've also heard of James court. Unfortunately James court has some rather not so flattering reviews. There are people complaining of being ripped off, noisy and such. Do you have any suggestions I should look at?

I think that the South End is going to be the best fit for you--I think the Back Bay will be a little too far to walk. The area has its good parts and bad parts, and working with a realtor would be your best bet.
