Ranked 1st best street in Allston Brighton

"Quiet little residential street"

- realsupergirl
This is one of the best streets in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, and I'm not just saying that cause I live here. It's only a block off of Comm Ave, which has easy access to the T, several resta...

Ranked 2nd best street in Allston Brighton

"Welcome to Boston's student-land"

- dayton583
Comm Ave is the possibly the longest thoroughfare and the hardest to "categorize". If you're really close to downtown Boston (like in the Back Bay part of Comm Ave), it's a nice, upscale address. But...

Carol Ave


"Cheap place for college kids"

Lnn Park


"Away from the Hustle and Bustle of Boston"

- drew76
This area is very nice and stately. The homes are gigantic and there is somewhat of a surburban feel in the middle of Boston. There is not much traffic as it is a cul-de-sac of sorts. Once you get...

Market St


"Busy, congested street"

- athenemis
This is the route I take to get to retail stores in Watertown, and the road seems to almost always have heavy traffic. The area it goes through in Watertown is mostly residential. As in most places...

Orkney Rd


"Definite pros, definite cons"

- edify2unify

"Transient and Noisy"

- marie11
Strathmore Road is smack in student central of Brighton, and as such, the population is very transient. As a result, not much pride is taken in the neighborhood and you get the sense that no one real...

Waverly St


"ok neighborhood near Cambridge"

- MattieJ
Waverly Street is a little more affordable than some other areas of Boston. It is safe, but does not have the quaint, historic feel of the more affluent neighborhoods. The pros are that the streets ar...
