Breakin' Down Allston For Real
I live in Allston (a small neighborhood of Boston), have done so for two years, and will likely do so for at least one more. People consistently (and occasionally accurately) dismiss it as a filthy den of sin populated entirely by drunken young maniacs. It is a weird and often charming neighborhood, though, and I feel like there is often more to it than meets the sober, disgusted eye. I've taken the liberty of noting what I perceive as the best and worst of the area.
