Boston in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... Agriculture is the main industry in the surrounding area of incredibly flat, fertile ‘fenland’ - no rolling hills in Boston, I’m afraid.

Well there is a main road that basically goes through the heart of boston,and when it gets abit f****d up with traffic the WHOLE of Boston suffers,and let me tell you that is quite often! Boston has one of the worst reputations for people being beat up and stuff like that,There was a doccumentary on T.V not long ago with horrible scenes of people getting beat up at night.
