About the neighbourhood
Mostly student populated area with some families. Safe to walk at night even when you don't see anyone on the street. Learn short cut to get to the buses faster. Walking to Harvard Business school and Harvard square is possible using Everett street bridge (not directions from Wallgreens)
Getting around
Buses 66, 64, 57
Car not needed
How to get there
From the Airport: taxi or Uber Black; or public transport: free shuttle from Airport to MBTA trains. If you don't have a Charlie card, buy one ride and take a train towards Government Center, change to Green line trains B, C, or D and get off Kenmore station. Take bus 57 and get off at Cambridge street after Harvard Avenue (ask me again for updated info or ask bust driver to alert you to the stop BEFORE Hano street on Cambridge street).
After you get off, find Hano street (next to Wallgreens ( large store for everything); walk down Hano to the bottom of the hill. ALERT: Keep on your left: walk THROUGH short housing complex; turn right, and next right, walk to the end; turn left; find second house on your right
