"the quieter part of town"
Salem Street is a quieter part of the main town. The majority of the restaurants and shops are nearby this street. There are a couple of nightclubs, and bars nearby. Salem Street gets excellent cell phone, internet and cable reception also. There is a hospital nearby, as well as a couple of parks, and schools and day care. The traffic is good on this street on this part of town. a couple streets over is where most of the cars travel. The neighborhood on the street is very friendly. I can't really find much to complain about boston though. I think it is great for anyone, couples, older people, or families. I mean i think it would even be highly memorable to a person on a buisness trip.
