I grew up in Roslindale, i love the diversity, small knit feel of the place while still a part of Boston
I love living in roslindale the neighborhood is diverse and has alot of local businesses. There are several schools in the area and kids are able to walk during the summer months. They also have the farmers market in roslindale square and different types of local vendors in the square. We also have the Audabon wildlife park where families can go and view nature, if you live in the area you can have your won garden in the neighborhood commuinity garden. There are several cemetaries within the vicinity of Roslindale that offer full service funerals for families in need. The transportation is kind of limited and the bus 14 only runs until 7pm each evening. The beautful homes in the neighborhood bring a beuatiful atmosphere and nostaligic look on American Legion. There are some many different walks of life within Roslindale and they just added bike lanes up the entire American Legion makig it safer for our bicyclist. Roslindale is a peaceful neighborhood and has many amenities.
What I love about Roslindale is the simple and humble environment. Everyone is polite towards others and treat each other with respect. There isn't as much commotion as other neighborhoods, and there is a nice balance of family run businesses and big name brands. What I would hope to see in the future is the same things, but with a much younger generation. A majority of the people I see and encounter are over the age of 40. There isn't as mean teens and young adults around the area, which does make it bland from time to time, but I know that in time the next generation will come along with the same attitudes of the people before
I like Roslindale because it is nice and quiet and it is convenient to get your shopping quickly here. They need to change how much the traffic is and making sure that people have time to cross the street.
Roslindale is a fantastic family town with great food and access to the Arboretum. Having grown up in the town it is very exciting to see new businesses and families settling down here!
Roslindale is just a family friendly community, which definitely means it's not a very exciting place for millennials looking to party or find jobs.
Its very calming and quiet. There is a lot of mom and pop shops and small restaurants that are great gems! There are plenty of barbershops, banks and small events that go on to make this town lively!
It's a great neighborhood in Boston. You get to be in the city while still maintaining the quaint neighborhood feel. It's relatively safe compared to other neighborhoods around Boston, which is good. However, it's very segregated. People of color live on one side of the neighborhood, and white people live on the other. I wish that it wasn't like this. It is also ridiculously expensive to live here.
Roslindale is very diverse. The square is active with great restaurants, coffee shop, bakery, etc. which is balanced with the dollar store, a thrift shop, for those whose income is less. There are nice sections of Roslindale and not so nice. That’s true in every town. Fallon Field and the Arboretum are great outdoor areas. I’ve lived here 33 years.
I love Roslindale, there is hardly an violence and everyone in the neighborhood is friendly. However, not everything is perfect if you're looking for a place you can settle then this is the neighborhood for you. Don't expect to move here if you want to party all night. The food around is local and good but after awhile you want something different. Overall Roslindale is great to an extent.
It’s a great town, with the scenic Arboretum, easy access to downtown via public transportation, I’m talking subway, bus and commuter rail. Rozzie village is cute and growing. Riot Theater, an improv comedy club just moved in and there is a brewery coming to town, gentrification has officially begun. My worry is that the neighborhood will become too expensive for the diverse people who live here.
It would be nice if the neighbors got to know one another. Otherwise, the town is fun. There are good restaurants and neat shops. Roslindale also has local needed businesses. There is a RMV, a local library, a Social Security office, and a great library. Merchants are also friendly.
I just moved here about a month and a half ago. Public transportation is easily accessible, I can walk to a lot of places, and it is very easy to get into the city.
Roslindale has always been a very comfy town. It always flew under the radar and everyone knew one another. Everyone had their favorite shop located in the square and it was always a competition on which bakery you went to. Recently Roslindale has been undergoing a few changes. At one time there were 5 bakeries now there is only 1. It has become hard for small businesses to survive. Roslindale is a little gem and I hope it continues to stay that way.
I have been living in Roslindale for almost 9 years, overall is a safe neighborhood, have the best transportation to get around, job opportunities, fun activities.
The places are so quiet, beautiful, and there is so much accessibility. Public transportation is easily accessible, the food stores are right around the corner. Public offices are so engaged with their residents, and so on.
I live in the town houses that are located on beech st in roslindale. The houses and neighborhood is amazing to look at. Its a very quit neighboorhood also which is a bonus. I lived there for several years. Before these town houses my neighborhood used to be apartments. Which some people may call projects. The neighborhood now is a huge transformation from what it used to be.
