What $2,500/Month Rents You in Back Bay

View as Map

The monthly sum basically gets you a 1-BR, 1-BA of no more than 800 square feet. Still, within that range there's a bit of fluctuation in these apartments—there are those in concierge buildings, for instance, and in buildings where you're on your own; there are views of the Charles and views of the Commonwealth Ave. Mall. And, hey, it's Back Bay! We assume the neighborhood itself is why you'd pay the premium and sacrifice the space, no?
