    "I’ve lived here for three years and can’t wait to move. The rent is cheap but whoever says it’s safe to have packages delivered must have a PO Box or a backyard because I had to stop having things delivered. Constant theft got a little annoying. There are a lot of shops, sure, but the only way back into downtown is the lovely MBTA. Unless you want to walk through Chelsea, Everett, Cambridge, and down into back bay. Sayonara Eastie. It hasn’t exactly been fun. "
