Cramped Grime

Lechmere, the Green Line, Cambridge, Beacon, Harvard Square, MIT, the old familiar haunts… Boston's a real city, full of the busy cramped grime that's essential to making a city a city (and which so obviously disqualifies San Francisco from being a city rather than just a rather pleasant self-absorbed town). On the streets I hear the welcome sound of Caribbean accents for the first time in years….

(This California boy gets unsettled by the endless rolling leafy forests around here, it all seems so unnaturally lush and low-key).
