VIEW<br>You pay for the view here; rent increases as you go up the apartment. Undoubtedly this place, right by the Charles, has the best possible view of the Boston skyline.<br><br>CONVENIENCE<br>5 minutes to i93; 3 minutes to mass ave; 2 minutes to Longfellow; 0 minutes to the MIT campus; 1 block from Kendal T; this is prime location and the price reflects it.<br><br>PARKING<br>130/month for an assigned spot; park on the street if you don't mind parallel parking into tight spots.<br><br>FACILITIES<br>This is a 1950s apartment; the kitchen (stove, countertops), bathroom, and piping clearly reflects it. "cozy retro look" is a euphemism for "the balcony and stairwell take up 200 sq ft and the oven looks like it runs on wood." Laundry costs $4, but at least the equipment is decent.<br><br>ROOMS<br>Major flaws with insulation and poor heating system. An extra electric heater is an essential for every room. The 1950s fan used for forced-air heating will run up $300/month in electric bills in the winter alone.<br><br>MANAGEMENT<br>People only say "hi" to management out of politeness; nobody cares about him. Your identity will be questioned even if you greet them everyday for 2 months. In general they will screw up your paperwork, give you erroneous penalties and warning notices at least once per quarter-year.<br><br>WHY WOULD YOU LIVE HERE<br>If you really want to have convenience of commuting, or if you really can't find anywhere else, or if you have extra money to throw around. Save this as a last resort.
