I thought I would give everyone a follow-up. Thanks for all of your input, I ended up taking a studio in the west end (beacon hill). seems centrally located enough until I get my bearings of the city.
Now I can use some advice on fun bars/restaurants (in the back bay/beacon hill area) and also looking for a shop that can take care of some curb rash and a detail before putting her in a garage for the winter.
