Touching Down In Brighton
Depending on just where your loyalty lies, Brighton is sometimes referred to as either Brighton-Allston or Allston-Brighton. Who comes first can be a hotly disputed matter, but for the purposes of this paragraph you know that we must consign Brighton to the number one spot. Lying in the northwest corner of Boston, this city of over 40,000 began as a largely agricultural center with a speck of commerce bringing it to life at its east end. Nowadays it is thoroughly enmeshed in the urban dinosaur known as Boston. Evidence? Over a third of its residents use mass transit, a hallmark of the industrial northeast (and now Eco-consciousness).
How Much Does A Brighton Apartment Cost?
It's a good question, and of course the answer depends on where you're looking, and at what. Smaller equals less expensive, usually, and many a factor comes into play. But who are we to drop such common knowledge?
Get The Skinny On Brighton
Brighton's long established, almost upscale by default, and well educated diverse denizens make this red brick laden landscape a fairly heady city. We say ""upscale by default"" because the home prices here have skyrocketed well past the national average due to the fact that there ain't much land left to build on. When you put the squeeze on development like that, prices tend to go up. Basic. Econ. Oh, and we say ""heady"" because, well, we just like that word. Boston College, Harvard University, the Bryman Institute, and Saint John's Seminary are responsible for the ""educated"" portion of this paragraph, and the diversity of the city is backed up by the smorgasbord of religions and ethnicities that call Brighton home.
As you might have guessed, Brighton is heavily peppered with a young, professional crowd. If students are the caterpillar, professionals are the butterfly, as the former tends to gracefully transform into the latter with clockwork regularity in this northeastern US locale. Some of the shining exemplars of this process are in fact residents of Brighton, and include former ambassador to Tanzania (now there's a gig) Charles Stith and John Krasinski - you know, that actor from The Office - and ""political rapper"" Mr. Lif.
Speaking of diversity, if the above doesn't fit that description, then we don't know what does.
The Social World Of Brighton
The cold weather may inhibit some from getting too excited about making the greater Boston area their home, but one thing you can say about this region of the country is that getting out of the house - er, apartment! - and finding something to do is never a boring prospect. The Brighton area is teeming with educated singles, and being in one of the densest parts of the country (take a look at this) makes for a strong chance you'll be bumping into such folks by sheer accident.
The social outlets are numerous. If you're a newbie to the world of casual meet n' greets, get a lesson in fruitful interactions at the Boston Area Social Anxiety Meetup. It's pretty sweet when one can drop in on a group activity for people that fear group activities, no?
Let's say you're at the intermediate level of social gracefulness. In that case, the Social Media Learning and Networking meetup might be more up your proverbial alley. These folks are all well and good with the face-to-face stuff, it's just the virtual version of ""being social"" they're struggling to master.
For those with advanced skills in the art of introduction, conversation escalation, and ""closing the deal,"" the milieu you want to be a part of is Social Empire. The name speaks for itself, does it not?
Have fun, but do your homework!
