What to love about Boston...

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Accord 01971170

If you've ever planned to visit one of the most European-like cities in US, you would undoubtedly have Boston on your list!  What, you might ask, is so European about it?  It is all in the Architecture and, of course, architecture invites a certain lifestyle. You would find here a lot of foot traffic on the tree lined sidewalks: people strolling with baby carriages,  dogs, musical instruments, art works; people sitting on the benches,  people playing chess in the parks:), baking along the roads... Many of the 1st floor occupants are small shops and restaurants happy to take their tables and chairs out to the sidewalks on warm days.  

Boston and, particularly, Back Bay, Beacon Hill and Brookline neighborhoods have many gorgeous buildings that are more than 100 years old. Many of them are in historical and preservation home lists, many have been gut renovated to preserve impressive brick and stone exteriors, while creating very contemporary and artsy interiors. The majority of those are Brownstones and Rowhouses with high ceilings, grand fireplaces and large windows. 

Some buildings in Boston are so close side-by-side to each other, that over the years even the gaps between them have been developed into covered walkways or spaces now occupied by businesses or loft-like condos.  There are a lot of fantastic blends of old and new. Of course, when you have such tight spaces and higher densities you also have many communities, theaters, schools, and so much more that gives opportunity to everyone find his own associations, his own circle of friends. This architecture inviting a lifestyle, where people can be together or alone, with or without pets, with or without children and feel safe. I love that about those Boston neighborhoods!
