Boston-boids and other locals...

Any of you familiar with http://www.longwoodgalleriaapartments.com/ , preferably from the inside? A friend might rent a studio there sight unseen--because the location is perfect--and would like the scoop. (Yes, said friend knows it's much better to see the place if you can.)

I work on the other end of the Longwood Medical Area from these.

I have never seen them from the inside, but they seem to be attractive --- albeit pricey. They would be good for someone doing research in the LMA who needs easy lab access at all hours of the day and night, or a medical intern. Your friend should try for a high floor in the building, though, because the intersection of Longwood and Brookline is crazy-busy all the time, and there are a lot of ambulances because of all the hospitals.

There is now a regular grocery store -- a Stop N Shop -- a few blocks away at Brigham Circle, and a Shaw's closer to Fenway Park. And that end of the LMA is pretty safe (the Brigham Circle area is less so...)

Second the remark about not wanting to be on a lower floor. You don't want to be on the top floor either, though, because of the god damned helicopters. I had a top-floor apartment in the Fenway for several years, and without that one floor of building to insulate you from the medflight helicopters, it gets pretty fuckin' loud at 3 am.
