yeah not so much. It is really an excellent town for young people. Where are you going? Like any big eastern city it has good PT, some poor areas, and excellent bars/ restuarants. Never lived there, but I love visiting. Try Redbones BBQ out in Cambridge. Good Carolina style!

<<< Northeastern Grad ('06), and I grew up in and around Boston. Have to agree with everything boozehound said; it's an amazing city, especially for college kids. There's plenty of great bars and restaurants, and the amount of college girls in the city is unbelievable so you'll have no problem in that department (especially with Boston College chicks ). Also, even if you aren't a Red Sox fan or a fan of baseball in general I highly recommend going to at least one game at Fenway. The atmosphere there is amazing.

Depends on who you ask. Downtown Boston is very diverse and everyone seems to get along fine. However the further you get away from the city the more segregeted it is, which really could be said about any major city and its suburbs due to economics, nevertheless that's how it is. For instance, Newton is often referred to as "Jewton" because the town is almost entirely made up of Jewish people. The stigma of there being 'white areas' ('Southie'- Dorchester, Quincy) and 'black areas' (Jamaica Plain, Roxbury) still exists, but personally I don't think it's anything like it was in the past. I mean afterall, this supposed 'racist city' is very liberal when it comes to politics and was a vital part of Deval Patrick becoming Mass. State Governor (in case you don't know or don't feel like looking it up, he's black).

I went to school in Boston, and had the time of my life. If job opportunties arise, I could see myself moving back some day. One of the biggest negatives is the insane cost of living. I just looked at a map, and I see that Emerson is right in the thick of it all. I hope your parents are helping with rent. If you have any money left over, you'll have access to a ton of great restaurants, celtics games, live music, museums etc. I think I had free admission to the Museum of Fine Arts that my school paid for - maybe you will too. Ton of free concerts at Berklee and New England Conservatory. Nice places to run along the river. Couple basketball courts here and there.
