"Very fancy and neat"

The commercial center of Boston, this is home to loads of residential buildings and lots of office space. Most of the residences are populated by the students of Boston College, which is a stones throw away. This is on the Green Line, and very affluent a neighborhood.

triangular OK, that's pretty funny. Your description sounds like Cleveland Circle, which isn't exactly affluent, but is near Boston College and has a lot of stores and restaurants (but hardly the commercial center of Boston; maybe you didn't see much of Boston while you were here?)

Anyway, you need to learn a little more about Boston ZIP codes. The street you reviewed is a random little residential street in Roxbury that's mostly apartment buildings filled with working-class families. It's a nice street and all, but hardly where you'd direct tourists looking for a college-town vibe or "the commercial center of Boston."
