    "The T is the most efficient way to move around the city, especially when commuting to downtown Boston. Jamaica Plain is a liberal’s paradise with people from all walks of life with kaleidoscope for their backgrounds that encompasses all the colors of the rainbow and detaches them as a unique habitat for this very elegant, exotic community. There are restaurants serving foods typical of far away places every where, everybody in this community has a very positive-permissive and inclusive attitude towards foreign customs"
