What are the metro Boston area college graduation dates? As colleges are approaching graduation, students, parents, and luggage crowd the streets. If you will soon find yourself in the vicinity of one of these following college campuses, I suggest you take an extra dose of patience and lower your expectations for parking spots, seats on the subway, and restaurant and hotel reservations.
These are the primary hot zones for tearful parents, slow moving SUVs, and gowned youngsters darting into streets like in Frogger. The colleges in red are each large enough to impact traffic, reservations, and public transportation on its own. Also keep in mind that colleges like Harvard, MIT, and BU frequently use buses to shuttle people around during event time.
The property in the spotlight this week is the 1730 sq. ft. townhouse condo at 23 Mount Vernon Street, Charlestown. Offering a ‘single family feel,’ this spacious townhouse condo has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a private entrance. Built in 1848 though you wouldn’t guess it, this property has been completely renovated and de-leaded. The private roof deck features a 360-degree view of the Boston Harbor and the rest of the city. Four original fireplaces make this a warm and cozy living space. The neighborhood of Charlestown is great for families and working couples because it is close enough to the city to be exciting but removed enough to be calm. The wonderful qualities of Charlestown has been previously blogged about here, here, and here. This property is listed by Duncan Donahue and Chris Remmes from Keller Williams.
