    "Boston has terrible traffic and commutes into the City are really bad. If you commute in the opposite direction to the majority it isn’t bad. Going back and forth across the Charles River for a commute is really bad. "

    "I would say that it is a car-dependent neighborhood. While there are shops where one can pick up groceries, any major shopping requires a car or delivery."

    "It's a really small neighborhood that feels suburban, but it is minutes from the city. It's also interesting because it's such a diverse group—from families to Boston College undergrads."
