RE: . I would rank it at both one of the best and worst cities to live in 2012.
Best in what way and worst in what way?
It’s a great city to walk, it has wonderful restaurants, a fantastic ball park (Fenway park), a great museum and is beautiful, yet it is so liberal, with a mayor who is anti-business and pro-union. Entering the city via Memorial Drive, past MIT, over the “salt and pepper shaker” bridge and into the back bay is spectacular. The north end is fabulous, with restaurants, churches, Paul Revere’s house, cafes and bars.
