I can answer the following questions on Boston the city. I know the basic geography of surrounding metro Boston area. But my expertise is really in the City neighborhoods Back Bay, Beacon Hill, south End, Chinatown, Financial area, West end, Leather district, South Boston, Fort point area, Fenway and North End and some parts of Cambridge. I live downtown and go out in all of the above areas and have friends in all above areas. - Night life with regards to bars/restaurants/hotels and clubs. - Hotels/theatres/restaurants/cafes. I can advise on price/quality and atmosphere. - Living conditions/lifestyles/safety and general info on the above neighborhoods. - Commuting around the city, best ways using public transport including parking lots and rough prices. - Walking around each neighborhood, attractions in each neighborhood. - Historic sites, tourist attractions, museums. - Different events during all seasons in Boston. - Shopping, most stores and locations.
I have lived in Boston for 10 years and originally came here on my own. I explored and went out to all kinds of social events and have made many friends in different neighborhoods with a variety of backgrounds and therefore have a good understanding of the city and the people living and working here. I also attend many different social groups/events to keep up to date with current events here politically and culturally. This can be beneficial for people visiting. I tend to walk to most places and as my hobby is photography and you see a lot more of the city than most people including architecture and unusual places/sites. I have very eclectic interests ranging from dining, social networking, historical appreciation and local politics.
Bachelors degree in Computer Science.
