Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. The real estate price bubble as of late has been partly to do with interest rates being so low....so money is cheap. Rates have been going up, but the FOMC doesn't meet for 6 weeks at a time.
  2. Any bubble really depends on the interests rates, which won't change for months at a time.
  3. I can't tell you anything about how it is in Boston schools, but this post will tell you about moving here: http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9818
  4. If you want to walk out into the city every day, go to Northeastern. This school is bordering Roxbury, which can be a "slum," but it also borders the Fens, which is beautiful and cultural. BC does have its own station on the Green line for easy access into the city. There's a section above for people moving in.
  5. Did you see this topic already? http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9818
  6. Yes, and now you must be put back in your cage...j/k
  7. THAT "Dirty Water," is a song by The Standells about Boston in the 60s, when the Charles was really (really) polluted, and the Boston Strangler was in the news. But we still love Boston! The Standells was a band from Los Angeles, though. Lyrics: spoken: I'm gonna tell you a story I'm gonna tell you about my town I'm gonna tell you a big bad story, baby Aww, it's all about my town Yeah, down by the river Down by the banks of the river Charles (aw, that's what's happenin' baby) That's where you'll find me Along with lovers, fuggers, and thieves (aw, but they're cool people) Well I love that dirty water Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, you're the Number One place) Frustrated women (I mean they're frustrated) Have to be in by twelve o'clock (oh, that's a shame) But I'm wishin' and a-hopin, oh That just once those doors weren't locked (I like to save time for my baby to walk around) Well I love that dirty water Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah) Because I love that dirty water Oh, oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah) Well, I love that dirty water (I love it, baby) I love that dirty water (I love Baw-stun) I love that dirty water (Have you heard about the Strangler?) I love that dirty water (I'm the man, I'm the man) I love that dirty water (Owww!) I love that dirty water (Come on, come on) fade
  8. What I have picked up from Southern hospitality is that a lot of it is based on being two-faced. I would continuously ask myself why someone was being nice to me when I knew they disliked me. Also, I've noticed that Bostonians like other people, wanting to be around them; Atlantans want to get away from other people as much as they can. This is a generalization. As for the old guy, there are a lot of migratory people, especially when they are retired. I'm glad you liked Boston. Maybe you will "love that dirty water" too!
  9. So ezcheese! I'm curious; what were your first impressions of Boston and New England? I hope you liked it since you are moving there.
  10. I can't add much, but another thing about Eastie is it is separated by water from mainland Boston; I don't think one can actually walk from East Boston to downtown without going through several towns to the north (and that's quite the distance). Maybe this isn't really important. But, Logan Airport is over there. The noise can be a concern, and is always used in local politics. From what I know though, most people are not bothered by it. The air routes determine where most of the noise is also.
  11. Books are better, but this site rocks for anything: www.wordiq.com So, for Boston, it's pretty damn good: http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Boston%2C_Massachusetts
  12. It took me awhile not to expect it down here in Atlanta...
  13. I can do without Simmons Hall....
