450 Salem Western Avenue
If you've lived or worked or gone to school in the general Boston, North Shore, South Shore, etc. area, you're well-acquainted with the fabled public trans system, usually referred to as MBTA (pronounced as an actual 3-syllable word) in everyday parlance; the extensive MBTA network includes light rail, subway, buses and boats. The MBTA's current Route 450, West Lynn via Western, runs from Salem's Commuter Rail Station to Haymarket--same basic route as when I lived in the illustrious city of Salem on Boston's North Shore. In those days I always took the MBTA 450 whenever I was going into downtown Boston for a day or to school at UMass. Check out the link for history and fun facts! For all of those three years, I lived on Federal Street on the top floor of an amazing Federal-style house.
