Why Visit: Shops, restaurants, and a lively nightlife with a hip feel to it. A great spot to grab a delicious bite to eat and spend the night. Jamaica Pond is a do-not-miss destination too!
Why Live There: Quieter than downtown. More green space around and more living area to downtown proper but still has a neighborhood feel to it. Bicycle paths, green Line (E) and Orange Line can be great ways to get into the city, and busses abound.
