Welcome to our Allston and Brighton, report card! The Allston and Brighton neighborhoods account for one of the most eclectic and happening places in the City. Its proximity to area colleges (and relatively cheap rent) makes these two neighborhoods a haven for students, young working professionals, and more recently, immigrants. The presence of these three main demographic profiles can be felt throughout the neighborhood. Student life (especially student PARTY life) is best experienced on or close to Harvard Ave—an eclectic commercial district filled ethnically diverse restaurants, bars, and unique shops. Unfortunately, student life comes at a price—namely noise levels. As a point of reference, outside of Dorchester, Allston and Brighton had the highest number of noise complaints in the City.
