Allston/ Brighton

If you’re a college student in Boston, you’ll know Allston well. Even if you’ve never lived there (although over 2,000 Boston students do each year) you’ve probably visited friends who do or have been to an Allston house party. Be sure to take a walk in this neighborhood around the end of August to witness the famous “Allston Christmas,” when students leave their no longer needed furniture and belongings on the sidewalks for anyone to take freely. Boston Landing is a new area that’s being developed with new construction rental buildings, New Balance buildings, and a new commuter rail stop.
