MASS.-WIDE—And one of the places they're likeliest to move into is our fair commonwealth: "Recession or recovery, young people remain far and away the people most likely to move. Between 2007 and 2012, young adults accounted for about 24 percent of the total population of the U.S., but they made up over 43 percent of all movers." [CityLab]
BOSTON—The city is one of the best in the U.S. for getting around without a car, according to some number-crunching from Thrillist: "Boston took third place, with a score of 74.8, and came in third for walkability, and fifth for bike-friendliness." Of course, this is not taking into account the winter we just had. [Thrillist]
