What do you like about Boston?
Very walkable, exciting, intellectual. Many ideas, a lot of diversity if you're willing to ride the trains to different neighborhoods. If you reach out to people, you can learn a lot about the city.

What do you dislike about Boston?
Racism and segregation. People joke about it here: as white as lexington, as black as roxbury; really though, it's terrible. Everyone knows about it, no one talks about it.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
Davis Squ., Somerville; Downtown; Harvard & Kendall Squ., Cambridge; most of the campuses.

How expensive is it?
A little pricey, but if you look around, you can make it work. ride the T. Shop at the Garment District. Go to trader joes at 9:00, get free stuff at the door.
Is it safe?

How is the weather?
Best weather anywhere. You can never predict! Snows in April, 100 deg. in November. If you live to be surprised, you'll love it here.

Additional thoughts?
Other folks wrote that we're stuck in our ways, but in terms of technology, Boston is the city of the future. In terms of thinking, if the status quo works, why change? We've got problems, sure, but we're working on it. Most of the time the city works well for people. We do what works. Maybe we're stuck up, but you would be to if your city was this great. jk
