Bus Station
“This is a very close bus stop for Bus #66. Its right in front of the Allston Library, you can't miss it! The stop on the Library side goes to Harvard Square, the stop across the street goes through Brookline and Brigham Circle. You can easily transfer to the Green B, C, D, and E lines in the other direction.”

“The correct address is not loading up on this map, it is located on 36 JFK Street. I'm not a big Starbucks fan and only think it's worth mentioning because the view of Harvard Sq is simply gorgeous.”

“One of the few sub shops we would recommend outside of Arlington (but not too far away). This is comfort food heaven. Large portions and large selection on the menu for lunch or dinner. Don't let the outside scare you. It is usually busy from open to close. 10 minute drive from Amsden Place.”
