"very cool street near Commons"

Chestnut Street is a beautiful historic street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. This neighborhood is very cool, with very nice townhomes and old fashioned street lights. The street is very narrow and difficult to drive or park on, but this is more of a walking neighborhood. There are many upscale restaurants and shops in the Beacon Hill area, so no lack of food or entertainment. Chestnut St. is only a couple of blocks from Boston Commons, so it is conveniently located for tourists or locals who like to enjoy the Commons.
