I'm really torn between northeastern in Boston and Fordham in the bronx so lets voice our opinions guys based on city life, night life, events...etc.

This should be in the high school discussion thread, but whatever.


I don't know much about Northeastern, but I've visited BC and Harvard. I liked both and the city overall. Harvard Square is especially nice.

And Fordham, you have the city in your hands. If you do choose Fordham, I'll probably see you there.

new york wins for events,parties, night life.
but boston is the mecca of college education after oxford and some others.
fordham is a great institute dont get me wrong

so it depends what your really goin to school for.
boston does have a night life, and being a college student it's easy to find parties.

if your goin for the streetwear scene then obv New york.





p.s.
boston sports own.
if you need someone to root for

dood go to northeastern. first the school is amazing and is surrounded by a ton of other schools so theres a shit load of college kids. Plus northeastern has insanely hot girls all over the place and there is just a retarded amount of parties in/around the area every night because of all the college kids. and boston is just a better place than ny. and like crooks said boston sports are fuckin insane so if you like baseball, baseketball or hockey your fucken set.

so i mean its up to you but i would say go with northeastern.

I'm not talking about dance lessons. I'm talking about putting a brick through the other guy's windshield.

I'm thinking something similar to this, but it's Northeastern and University of Oregon.

Boston is a great city to go to college in. I've been here for the past 4.5 years, have my degree and live right outside the city. It's been a great time. I love visiting NYC, but I can imagine going to school there to be overwhelming for a first-year student.

The only downsides I would foresee for you would be:
--Everything shuts down at 2AM, which means you need to be on the "T", in a cab or in your car at around 1AM.
--Did I mention the cab fare here is ridiculous? A ride from BC to Harvard Ave will cost me $13-$20. If you know how close the two are, you'd want to stab a knee. Get yourself a Charlie Card and a monthly pass and call it a day.
--The people...stop...the locals are annoying sometimes.
--If you're not a fan of the teams, the locals are even more annoying. They whine when they win. They whine when they lose. It's absolutely ridiculous.
--Drivers here = fucking awful.
--The accent is ass. How hard is it to pronounce "R"s?
--Being harassed in downtown crossing by dudes selling CD-Rs of their wack rap group.
--It's absolutely dead in the summertime since most college kids leave.

Other than that, the environment is filled with mad college students so you're always bound to meet someone in the same age group.

If you go to Fordham:

-- NYC never sleeps.
-- Subways aren't expensive. If you're broke, just hop and hope no NYPDicks see you.

You post on Hypebeast and you're asking which city would be better?

I was between Fordham LC and Boston University. Im from north jersey but my parents are lazy enough that NYC was too much of a hassle to be around all the time.

I was gonna write a long response but basically, I chose BU and have no regrets. But new york as a city was is the best in the country. let me know if you have any want to know anything speciific about Boston.

O yea, NE is generally a 5 year school which is a bigger plus than you think.

and the streetwear scene in boston is growing btw. Bodega, Laced and Concepts are solid. Karmaloop sucks in my opinion but its there and since the trends are moving to higher end stores and labels and Boston is all new money so thats easy to find. my favorite vans i found at barneys in copley.

I was too lazy to read at first but this is dead on. and to the 2 am shut down time, it just means you start drinking earlier and have more time to have "afterparties" at your house/dorm with whatever girls you meet/know

I went to school in Boston (BU) and enjoyed it, it's very expensive even living in Allston, a "cheap" student neighborhood (I come from Philly where beer, food, rent is dirt cheap tho so it's all relative) but NYC even more so. Boston's got plenty of yuppies though esp. downtown (see Newbury st), I mean Boston isn't a working class city, it's got a bunch of yuppies, preppies, etc, not sure what you're talking about.

And FYI, Boston College is not in Boston incase your confused by whoever posted bout that, it's a few miles outside, and really Boston cab fare is average, prolly damn near the same rates as NYC
