Some Landlords Get Lumps of Coal for Allston Christmas

File this under "N" for "No shit" (sorry, rainy days and Tuesdays always get us down). The long weekend's many, many move-ins revealed some apartments in the Hub that are, shall we say, creative in their standards. Among the worst offenders was this 21-unit building at 45 Ashford Street in Allston: bedbugs, roaches, and rats, broken smoke alarms, asbestos—you know, Allston. The city has ruled it uninhabitable and would-be tenants have had to make other arrangements for a week while the landlord cleans up. (And, perhaps even then, the city can add the landlord to its shame list.)
