Moving to Boston!
The last decade for me has been about as much of a whirlwind tour of the US as anyone at a desk job can ever expect. I've lived in Daytona Beach, Dallas, San Francisco (2 places), Los Angeles (3 places), and Dallas again. It continues as I've accepted a job in Concord Massachusetts, 20 miles west of Boston!
I'll be moving in a few short weeks and am looking forward to meeting the local GWJers.
I intend to move to a town west of Boston. I've heard Worcester (Woostah? Really? Where did the R and the C and the E and the other E and the R go?!) is pretty cheap but that's farther than I was hoping to go. While I scour craigslist and all that, I figured I'd see if you folks have any advice. I'd l like to find a nice 2 bedroom (or 1 bedroom plus den/office/whatever) place for under ~$1400 a month (the less and more awesome the better, obviously). Ideally it would have good access to both Concord and Boston. The Boston access being important for my ladyfriend who'll be looking for an editing job at a publishing company when we're settled. She's interested in taking a train into the city.
Waltham is looking promising but Im hoping for more options.
If you know of great rental properties, especially quiet townhomes and the like, please let me know
Thanks Bostonians. And feel free to make fun of my southern accent when I get there.
