Best Places to live in Boston?

I'm currently in the process in relocating to Boston from NYC for an AM gig. For everyone that lived in Boston recently or currently, where's the most safe and affordable places to rent for someone working in Downtown. Budget is ~$1,700 a month. If I could, I'd prefer to walk to work or take reliable public transit. Thanks

You looking at 1 bedrooms? If so I would recommend Somerville, Allston/Brighton. Would be tough to get 1BR in South Boston for that. Craigslist and Apartments.com are good references for the area.

Maybe I led you to believe that this was a God given gift and not something I worked for, every single day of my life.

South Boston

If you can find people to live with, Southie is the most fun area to live. Beacon hill is also good. I like the North End as well since I've been going there for the festivals and food since I was a kid.

Dayman?

Lived in Somerville at Assembly Row. It'll be more expensive than what you're looking for, but it was really nice and new. Right on the Orange (best) line. Took 10 minutes to get to the financial district.

Look into it if you can.
