      Note that this is best case commuter train commute . Red line can take forever . Also its only south station and switching train adds a lot of time

      Mouthwash is correct . Braintree is easily 1.5 hours if you have to switch trains or drive to work

    Do you hate good weather and spending much more $$$ than it’s worth to live there?

  • A decent 2 bhk apartment in places like Waltham (10 mile from Boston) will cost you 2500.

  • Check Craigslist in the area you are interested in... gives you a decent view of the rental cost
