Warning About Property
For the love of all things holy, do not rent 90 Magoun Avenue in Medford. I don't know how else to get this message out, but if you know anyone north of Boston/Cambridge looking for an apartment, PLEASE do not let them rent 90 Magoun Avenue. Here is a brief summary of our time in this horrid place: The landlord lives in the building, and he is not just a jerk, but a harasser, a bully, and a liar. He spent a year terrorizing us, particularly my quiet and sadly unassertive boyfriend. "I love dogs," he chirps, but no, he hates dogs, and he hates our dog. "Have friends over! Have parties in the yard!" Don't. Just don't. Don't walk on the grass, don't laugh to loudly, don't walk down the stairs to meet the deliveryman at the door lest you be besodden with texts about how doing any of those things is the most annoying thing anyone has ever done to him. He's before woken me up from sleep at 11 pm to tell me to stop making noise. He is the master of the microaggression. He smokes, both weed and cigarettes, and I sure hope you like those smells because they are in your apartment whether you like it or not. Also he and his girlfriend routinely scream at each other, to the point that the cops have been called. Multiple times. To make things better, the neighbors like to set off fireworks. Every night. That or they have firefights, I honestly don't know. Also there's an insane old man across the street who takes great joy in watching me carefully every morning as I leave for work, and once came over to let me know he'd been watching and knew I had a hard time unlocking the front door. DO NOT LIVE HERE.

Good Old Wilson Square
I loved this area. It was close enough to walk to both Porter and Davis, but was out of the way. I frequented Tacos Lupita quite often, along with that Starbucks. I would gladly move back to the Ville.

Harvard
Peach Farm (Chinatown)
Best late-night food in boston is found at the Peach Farm. Get there at 1:45am (or earlier) to get in, or else you'll be in line forever. Don't necessarily recommend living in chinatown, but it's fun to visit if you're out in beacon hill or back bay somewhere.

Stanford, Swarthmore
Boylston/Hereford Highrise
Great access to the Green Line and the Prudential Center, and a short walk to the South End. A bit touristy though, so you might have to walk an extra couple blogs to find the better restaurants or avoid holiday crowds.

Stanford, Harvard
Great for families!
Chestnut Hill is located between Brookline and Newton, MA. It's very suburban, but is connected to the greater Boston area via the T. There is no parking on street for many blocks, which can be challenging during snow storms. Great grocery stores and mall (best Macy's I've been to)! Very short drive to i95, which is key. Unfortunately, the major street in Chestnut Hill is Rte 9 which can have a lot of traffic. Also home to the smaller and more delicious Oiishi!

Lovely place
Great apartment, great price, really beautiful neighborhood near the Charles. Darwin's is nearby as well which is a great place.

Pinewood Apts/ Fenway
Loved this apartment. Well-priced, responsive and friendly landlords (family owned, NOT copley group). Easy walk to Longwood/ Harvard Med as well as Back Bay. 5min walk to the Green Line Fenway stop.

Duke, The Boston Consulting Group
Wonderful neighborhood!
I lived on Clarendon just south of Columbus and it was my favorite neighborhood in Boston. It's quiet with very little traffic and adorable brownstones, while at the same time still close to a lot of fun spots, including the Tremont restaurant and bar scene and the Boston Common.

MIT, Cambridge, Stanford
Love this place!
Adorable house with front and back porch, backyard, sweet kitchen and pantry. Street is very cute, generally a great neighborhood. I'd recommend checking out for breakfast Soundbyte Cafe on Broadway as well as Johnny's. YUM.

UChicago, Bain & Company
Enjoyed proximity to so many different areas of Boston / Cambridge
We really enjoyed being able to walk everywhere on weekends, from the South End to the North End, Harvard Square, Back Bay and everywhere in between. The lack of local grocery stores made a car pretty important, however, we really loved the mix of people in our neighborhood and the ability to walk everywhere!

Back Bay Apartments
Close to shopping (Shaws or Prudential), some offices nearby, and walking distance/short drive to South End restaurants

Missouri (Mizzou)
Huron & Concord Ave
Great place to live if you don't mind a firehouse two blocks away. Convenience store directly across street and inside the store there is a kick-ass affordable cafe towards the back. Daily specials, delicious wraps and full-on entrees, and quick service too. Dry Cleaners steps away. and adjacent to the Cleaners is a overpriced neighborhood Breakfast/Lunch spot called Hi-Rise Bread Co. Be prepared to be met with snobbery. the workers aren't particularly warm. But then again, no one is in Boston...

Green Street
This is a great location within 10 minutes walk to both Harvard and Central Squares. It is a quiet area and has ample street parking. There are bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants and banks all in close walking distance. The neighborhood is a good mix of families and students. Running/walking paths are available along the Charles River.

Harvard, Bridgespan Group
Charming neighborhood
Very quaint and charming neighborhood, easy walking distance to downtown and Back Bay, and easy to hop on the T to Cambridge. Apartments tend to be older, and not a ton of nightlife, but some great restaurants

Fun, young area, although more happening in central, davis, and the city.

Fun area but quite a hike from the city. Good, young vibe for people working in cambridge or going to tufts

Best house at Harvard. Fear the tree!

Harvard
central sq (bishop allen drive)
Some good relatively inexpensive apartments here. Lots of fun bars in central. Less expensive than living in the city, although you need to build in time for the commute (don't recommend if you have a finance or consulting job but otherwise it's great)

Georgia Tech, Bain & Company, Harvard
Great quiet street off Mass Ave
I lived in a house that had been divided into four units and was an AWESOME unit. The area itself is fairly quiet. Street parking is manageable -- we never had a problem finding parking within a couple blocks. This is within walking distance to both the Harvard and Central Square hubs of restaurants and bars. It's also really close to Cambridge Latin High School which has a grassy lawn and tennis courts, which are perfect if you have a dog or need a sunny place to lounge. I was at Harvard Business School, and it was an easy walk or bike over the river but I probably wouldn't live too much further away.

Living near/at HBS
Lived on HBS campus: pretty convenient walk into Cambridge, feels safe. Warning: it's a bit of a food desert at night. Cab stand & zipcar on campus reduce the need for a car. Great running & bike path along the river.
