"Pretty, Friendly, Overpriced"

Well it is a pretty street, and it does have a lot of pretty places; buildings with pretty exteriors. I have had friends who lived here and in one case a friend's apartment had been carved out of a space that wasn't originally meant to be one, and it was a very uncomfortable living area. In addition, like a number of them, it was entirely electric heat, which in the winter can make for some very uncomfortable bills! Being in the South End, Chandler Street is certainly nice looking and can be a pretty walk to make, and people are generally quite friendly, but I'm not sure it's worth the kind of money you have to pay to live there as a renter or a buyer.

"Chandler Street nestles in the heart of the South End in Boston, MA"

Tree Lined Victorian Neighborhood street in the heart of South End, Boston, MA. Ecclectic but a little gentrified, close to everything including Copley Square, transportation.
The South End is a bustling neighborhood that feels like a small town but is in the middle of boston. People are nice, pet friendly. Best Restaurants, Hamersleys comes to mind. New Art and specialty retailers opening up.
