I am a composer and graphic designer living in the Boston area. I grew up in Harvard, Massachusetts and went to MIT for college, living in this apartment for the last two years of school.
Having lived in the apartment, I can attest to the fabulous location! The only drawback was parking (and I highly recommend NOT having a car during your vacation to Boston), but when I lived there with a car and had to move it every morning at 7 am, it was amazing to walk through the streets of the North End and smell the garlic cooking :) It's on the edge of the North End, near the Waterfront. The roofdeck has a view of the whole city and harbor, and a block from the apartment is a beautiful park that spans the harbor. 10 minute walk to downtown's shops and attractions. And actually ON the Freedom Trail, which is a line through the city that brings you to all of the historical destinations from Bunker Hill to Paul Revere's house, old cemeteries and churches.
The apartment is small and cozy (it is a studio after all!) but has everything you need to be self-sufficient on your vacation. It is in the basement of a 12 unit building, and actually I bought it because it reminded me of a wine cellar! When I lived there, I used to have dinner parties and with the shades up, passers-by would ask if we 'were open' or could they make reservations! Room only for 2, but for 2 it is a perfect getaway in a lovely part of the city.
Boston's North End is a historic Italian neighborhood, steps to Boston harbor and the downtown Boston, Fanueil Hall Marketplace, the Financial District, and the Freedom Trail. Battery Street is a quiet 2-way street between Hanover Street (the main street in the North End, lined with restaurants and shops) and Commercial Street (which runs along the water). Dine at Boston's best Italian restaurants, visit cafes and pastry shops, convenient to public transportation (Haymarket or North Station subway) and the bike trail into Cambridge. The North End contains several historical landmarks, including the home of Paul Revere and Old North Church. Nearby attractions include the New England Aquarium, Boston Garden, Fanueil Hall, Haymarket (a giant outdoor food market on weekends), the Museum of Science, MIT, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, and the Boston Common. Ice skating, fishing, ferries into the harbor and many parks surround the area.
