    One of the easiest places to park if you're taking the T into the city.

    It's the end of the line. Not much around except for a Bertucci's and a strip mall

    The end of the red line. Check out the restrauants nearby. The kiosk in the station that sells samosas are pretty decent!

    If u park here 4 work make sure 2 get here early during a snowstorm b/c the limited parking gets worse due to people who live in the area also parking their cars in garage when there's a parking ban

    Even though this is the Northern terminal of Boston's busiest subway line, you CANNOT F*&#)@G GET A NEW CHARLIE CARD HERE AND THUS MUST PAY A HIGHER FARE.

    If you haven't been here in a while make sure to take your parking garage ticket with you. You pay inside the station now. No more attendants. There are kiosks near the stairs and elevator.

    I always park on the top level (5). Plenty of spaces and a view of Cambridge.

    Avoid this parking garage at all costs during rush hour. Horrendous.

    @Anthony C. The lady with the carriage screams at me for putting on mascara on the T. "avoid" is a more gentle warning than I'd

    Try avoiding the lady with the carriage. She always talks to herself. :)

    The exit stair to surface level can be confusing .. One leads to buses, another to pick-up-dropoff area and a third to bertuccis. look for the signs.
