    I like JP. Lots to do. I wanted to live there this year, but I couldn't find a place that was as cheap as my current location in Brookline. Where are all these low rent apartments? As always, I'm sure it helps to know people."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    I dunno whats cheap, but my last place 3 beds 1600 on Williams. Really wasnt too bad splitting 3 ways. New joint is 1400 (2bed) with heat and hot water. This ones right near Ten Tables. Place is mint...hardwood floors, huge rooms and a nice balcony/ porch...plenty of space for bunk beds and activities.

    I'm living in JP for pretty cheap (550/month) with one other guy and I think you're all a buncha pussies, complaining about S.Huntington... make that hill your bitch.what the fuck are you talking about. bikes, bitches & booze or get the fuck out.

    today on the way to work I saw one!

    A glorious tall yuppy looking woman who had clearly suffered a life time of wealth and fancy European beauty products. Her hair was beautiful, her clothes expensive, her skin flawless, she was rich, beautiful, and oblivious. In one hand she had some sort of high prices coffee product, and in the other she pushed the latest in high end double wide run/walk stroller (the kind you get when you MUST remove the after birth weight right away so you jog with your kid instead of walk them), in the same hand that drove the stroller she had the leash for her GIANT purebred dog, which clearly had papers and is put into the finest kennels during the families annual month long vacation to the fancier bits of the south of France.

    She was clogging up the entire sidewalk, looked happier than I have been in years, and was oblivious to anything but her fancy coffee drink and her high prices cell phone. I tried so hard to work up some hatred up for her, but it just wouldn't happen, I was so happy to have finally spotted what you were all talking about that I almost screamed out "HELL YEA DOUBLE WIDE STROLLER!" The rest of the ride to work I had a big smile on my face. I can cross "double wide stroller powered by yuppy" off my JP bingo card now!

    I really wish I could get into the "its fun to get grumpy" thing, but every day at work I sit around and contemplate various ways the human race might snuff itself out, so in order to preserve my own will to live I think I have removed that ability from my emotional tool box.

    I could totally see how you might work up a nice frothy lather over these kind of people, I mean they are sucking down resources like black holes, and on top of it pumping out little versions of themselves two at a time (hence the double wide stroller), but I just couldn't do it.

    :)this wont hurt a bit...

It's super bright and has one of those stupid coexist stickers on it and a bunch of other dumb stickers about how ART IS KEWL and whatever. and a huge JP sticker.

    jp-wise. what up wif da galway and the rearrangement of the joint? i may have to frequent costy's. (and get into brawls). on the few times i drink in JP. but i love me some monumental cupcakes (even though i don't eat cupcakes) cuz i love patti h. the owner. and i love me some dogwood. and doyle's (back before it got all commercial). and the behan. and james' gate.

    anyway.

    and oh yeah--lesbians!!!!!!!! yaaaaaaYYYYYYYYYYY...

    I had a friend that moved to JP once. I never saw him again..

    But seriously, what is it about JP that's so different from Somerville or Cambridge? I go to JP for work like 2 times a week for the last couple of years and I can't really figure it out. It always feels the same to me and how it feels is very distinct. I'm somerville4lyf so I'm totally biased, but seriously name some unmistakable characteristics for me beside the coriderp, JP y u so weird?If at first you don't succeed... you fail.

    when i commuted to walpole, i tackled s. huntington, washington st going up to the enneking pkway, and the obnoxious hill on rt. 1 leading up to rt. 27, shortly after the norwood landry's.

    if you put the s. huntington hill in comparison to the other two, it became a small bump in the road. just gotta have the right attitude.

    also, i like JP having never lived there but having worked there. fun places to explore, brightly painted houses, easily accessible trees and parks. i'd consider moving there if there was better places to mountain bike. franklin park is fun for cx but i like to run my dog on trails, so i'm aiming to move to somerville and be near the fells.

    came across this, and if you like the emerald necklace like i do, then maybe you ought to sign this

    Save Jamaica Pond’s Watershed
    A large 12.5 acres of undeveloped woodlands on Hellenic Hill which overlooks Jamaica Pond was put on sale in January 2011. The big money pressures will be immense to maximize the development of these lands. We respectfully support the conservation and preservation of Jamaica Pond’s watershed.

    * Jamaica Pond has been an important source of water for wildlife and people since the beginning of time.
    * Native Americans and people through the ages have enjoyed the beauty of the waters and hill.
    * Jamaica Pond was the water reservoir for Boston up to the 1850s and it is still an emergency water source.
    * The underground springs have made Jamaica Pond one of the cleanest waters in the entire state.
    * Jamaica Pond Park is used daily by thousands of people to revitalize their physical, mental and spiritual health.

    We petition Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Massachusetts General Court, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, Boston City Council, and Citizens to purchase these lands and conservation easements to:

    * Conserve and Preserve Jamaica Pond’s watershed.
    * Ensure the Integrity of the Emerald Necklace parks envisioned by Frederick Law Olmsted as a sanctuary for all the citizens.
