"My review"

I live in Thoreau hills which is a very quiet place to live. Nothing really happened much, except for the annual block party one a year. The majority of the people who live there are middle aged to senior citizens. There is the occasional young couple who lives here but really doesnt stay in the neighborhood for more than 2-3 years. I have lived in this neighborhood for eleven years now and I love it. The only complaint I have is all the foot traffic we have now due to the apartment complexes built behind us. Everyone from that complex comes and walks there dog, runs/walks, and rides bikes. Usually they're nice but you will run into the occasional person who thinks there on top and they're always right. This drives me nuts because they havent live in there complex for a year and I have lived in this place for ten plus years. When this happens I do either one of two things apologize and move on or ask them where they live and basically tell them if you dont like what I am doing feel free to walk your dog in your complex. With that aside it is a very safe environment for younger children, because there isnt a lot of foot traffic. There isnt much to come and see, but if you like the outdoors and going for walks this place is great for bird watching, riding bikes, walking dogs, etc. There isnt any neighborhood slang like others would think but there is a lot of gossip that goes on in this place, it like high school for grown ups. I would say for points of interest is there is a summer camp that is in the woods that people walk in. Another spot is the entrance, the sign we have it crafted with stone rock on the outside with writing on a slab.
The last place to see it the neighborhood itself. It a beautiful place with lots a sensory and friendly people to make you welcomed. As I talked about before this is no neighborhood slang but we do use Massachusetts slang, an example of this is wicked pissa. There is no definition to this word what we really use is for is to describe something that we liked. Now since you have read about Border Road and how it's one of the best neighborhoods to visit I n hope when you come visit Boston be sure to come to Concord and go to Thoreau Hills and see what all the fun's about.
