What do you like about Boston? Biking. Many people are interested in it. There are also a lot of people around my age, obviously, which is usually good.

What do you dislike about Boston? Biking. As popular as it is here, it's very dangerous. Drivers tend to never pay attention, and bike-related accidents and deaths are very common. Public transportation is slow and prices are rising. Not very diverse. Unnecessarily expensive for subpar housing and food. The art scene is sad. Depressing city.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I've lived in Cambridge and Brighton. Cambridge was very boring and "Harvard," but it feels a bit safer to bike in. Brighton is quiet around here, though the housing is expensive. If you live here, buy a bike to explore when you get bored. The new ICA is amazing, and hanging out by the water is fun. Alston is usually busy.

How expensive is it? VERY

Is it safe? Yes. I've never had a problem, but haven't lived anywhere too sketchy.

How is the weather? Random. Last winter there was barely any snow but toward the end it would go from sixty degrees to twenty within a few days. Summer gets very hot and you're not really sure when a season ends anymore.

Additional thoughts? Don't live here.
