A great alternative to living downtown (which can be pricey) is Brighton - it's technically still part of Boston but a little more affordable, full of young residents, fun things to do, and is a really short T (subway) ride to downtown.

For new grads, Boston's North End can't be beat!!! It has affordable rent, is totally accessible to the T (Boston's subway system), and is at the HEART of where historical Boston meets modern Boston - it is literally a 5-minute walk to the financial district, Faneuil Hall or the Boston Garden (which is now called the "TDBankNorth Garden" after a stint as the "Fleet Center"... ;)

Boston is a very literary city with lots of bookstores (though sadly some of the best independent ones have closed), readings, writers' groups, MFA programs, and a general bookish feel, especially in Harvard Square.

In the midst of all the excitement about the Red Sox, the Patriots, the Celtics, the Bruins, do not miss the Head of the Charles Regatta in late October. It's the premier rowing event in the US, and as exciting as any sports event you can imagine.
