Newcomer’s Handbook® for Moving to and Living In Boston: Including Cambridge, Brookline, and Somerville
This book covers much more than just Boston proper. While the City of Boston itself contains about 617,000 people, the greater Boston area as a whole, including the city, exceeds 4.5 million residents. In this Fifth Edition of the Newcomer’s Handbook® for Moving to and Living in Boston you’ll find thorough profiles of popular outlying towns, as well as updated coverage of Boston’s own neighborhoods and bordering communities that, as much as the city itself, make up the essence of the Boston area: Cambridge, Arlington, Brookline, Somerville, Medford, Newton, Quincy, and more. We’ve updated and added to important sections like Getting Settled, Transportation, Helpful Services, Cultural Life, and Money Matters, while streamlining throughout to make this the most readable, useful, and enjoyable edition yet. In honor of the green movement, we’ve included a section called Green Living that explains everything you need to know about conserving Mother Earth’s resources while living in Boston.
From Charlestown to Jamaica Plain, from Arlington to Quincy to Wellesley to Weymouth, this latest Newcomer’s Handbook® extensively and intensively describes each neighborhood—its character, its features, and types and availability of housing—while offering the most up-to-date information on finding a place to live, childcare, transportation, education, cultural life, helpful services, recreation, and much more.
