during lunch i went to go see a really nice three bedroom apartment but in a kind of crappy location on the outskirts of cambridgeport, right next to the loading dock of a genetics factory. this place's got everything, big space, parking, plenty of sunshine, hookups for in-unit laundry, newly renovated kitchen and bathroom, a view of the boston skyline off in the distance, close enough to central square, closer to mit, even closer to the charles river. it's just right next to a really industrialized part of town though. all day long i'd probably hear the loading trucks beeping as they pull out of the parking lot, and people coming in and out of work. from the back windows you can look right into their office space. the fact that this property's been on the market for a while and been price reduced a couple of times says something about how willing people want to move here.
so it'd appear that the few promising leads from sunday all but disappeared. still waiting for that perfect property to come around. everytime i see an apartment, whether it'd be good or bad, just narrows the search that much more because i have a better idea of what kind of place i want.
