This is a beautiful urban neighborhood that is close to Fenway Park and has basic neighborhood needs, such as supermarkets and restaurants. It is an expensive neighborhood, but it is a nice area to be in.

I love Fenway, it's absolutely beautiful. I wish there was more for college students, as well as a local nightlife considering there are about 6-7 colleges around, in addition, the housing boom has made unafforable to live here.
Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. Close proximity to hospitals and medical care. Very safe and clean. Parking can be very tough to find.
