Back Bay Reviews
I am a graduate student at Boston University and I am living in Back Bay! I immediately fell in love with this neighborhood! Easy access to public transportation. The community itself is beautiful and there is easy access to many stores and restaurants!
I absolutely loved living in the Back Bay. I recommend it to anyone looking to live in Boston. You are just so centrally located you can literally walk anywhere in the city,
Very high cost of living but great amentities. I've lived in the area for about 8 years and little has changed except more locations are being renovated. Good public transit though with green line/orange line and bus service.
