Overall, NU students are able to get around Boston cheaply and efficiently. One common complaint is that the T (subway) does not run late enough—it shuts down at 12:30 a.m. There are some confusing aspects when it comes to commuting around Beantown. For one, pay no attention to the street names—there’s no school on School Street, no court on Court Street, no dock anywhere near Dock Square, and, unless it’s raining, there’s no water at all on Water Street.
However, the Back Bay streets are in alphabetical order: Arlington, Berkeley, Clarendon, Dartmouth, and so on. South Boston streets can also be easily navigated: A, B, C, D. The local transportation does not compare to New York City’s system, but it does manage to get everyone around without much hassle.
