    "Back Bay is a nice area. I really only recognize my neighbors by their dogs, because we often exchange dog names before we get to the level of actually meeting each other. Commonwealth Ave Mall is a great place to walk dogs or people watch. I live right next to Newbury Street, which can be super crowded with tourists in the summer. It’s a safe area but I have seen some shady drug deals going on occasionally. This is a city. So you’ll have that. Rent keeps going up and the neighborhood keeps feeling more like a shopping mall. The biggest win for me is the close proximity to the esplanade. "
