Move in day in Boston is tomorrow

September 1Many of the streets of Boston are littered with unwanted furniture tonight. Most apartments in Boston have a September 1 start to their lease (a nod to how much of an impact the student population has here in Boston).  To those of you living in n’hoods heavily populated with student renters, be patient and make sure you don’t need to use the streets tomorrow.
