Interaction with Guests
I love people, who they are, what they do, etc. Most guests are very busy, so I try not to bother, but the short answer is 'as much as people want to'.
As a neighbor said to me one night while we were walking our dogs, I love the peacefulness of the suburban quality, at the same time many great restaurants are a short walking distance away. We have one, Zocalo, right across our driveway. Also, our street runs from the Mystic River to Spy Pond. That is very cool!
Bus stop on Broadway in sight from our windows. Couple blocks from the buses on Mass Ave, basically 15 min from the T at Alewife station.
Other Things to Note
The East Arlington neighborhood is charming, most of these 'two flats' that go for miles in every direction were where a lot of working class families raised their kids from the '20s until fairly recently. Shirley's folks emigrated from England and got this place in 1962.
Front and Back outer doors must be secured to prevent our Husky, Chloe, from running off. Also, consideration is key for use of the shared bathrooms.
