    "We have lived here now for 5 years. One of us works nearby, and the other is recently retired. The neighborhood is quiet, convenient for shopping and restaurants, and about one block from the river (which we take good advantage of). It's also surprisingly easy for us to walk into Boston, which is something we didn't expect. We moved in the the suburbs and have had no regrets."
