Overall Experience at Jamaica Plain:
Boston is home to the country's best universities. I am proud to say that I received my education here. The city also has an excellent and lively vibe that I enjoy. When I cruise the streets at night, I can hear the eager chatter from a nearby restaurant and the rhythm of music from the radio of a car. Boston is a small melting pot and I am glad that I am able to meet people from all over the world. Most people are accepting of minorities. The number of different cultural restaurants is outstanding. I can eat anything from Greek gyros to Indonesian Fried Rice to Belgian waffles with ice cream around the city. There is always some event to attend and I can always rely on finding entertainment, whether it is shopping at Newbury Street, bowling at King's, or kayaking along the Charles River. In addition, Boston is a bike friendly city. I love how it encourages fitness with its many gyms. However, it would be better to have more outdoor parks with basic equipment for people to exercise. Moreover, I feel that Boston is a safe city in comparison to others.
One of the cons of living in Boston is its public transportation system. The trains are not as expedient as they can be, and they are often unreliable. Another minor problem of living in Boston is its frigid temperatures and unbearable blizzards. However, that is something most people from New England would have to accept. Furthermore, there are some sections of the city whose buildings would fare better with some renovations, but that is not an immediate concern.
