Allston Personal Injury Lawyer

At Mass Injury Firm, P.C., our understandThe vibrant neighborhood of Allston is located in the western part of the City

of Boston, Massachusetts. It is located near many colleges and universities, and

therefore has a very high population of students and young professionals. Harvard

University owns a significant portion of land in Allston, and much of its Business

School campus and many of its athletic facilities are located in Allston. Boston

University campus runs along Commonwealth Avenue, and many of its students are

Allston residents. Additionally, Berklee College of Music owns a building in Allston,

which is used by students as a rehearsal building.

The prominent student presence, coupled with the large immigrant

population living in Allston, makes the neighborhood well known for its rich

diversity. As a result, there is a wealth of international cuisine options, restaurants,

cafes, shops, and stores. Each year, Allston hosts the Allston Village Street Fair,

which showcases international foods, highlights local businesses, features live

musical and dance performances, and provides many family-friendly games and

activities. An unofficial holiday, held in Allston each year in the month of August, is

Allston Squirt Gun Day. On this day, young residents gather at the intersection of

Brighton Avenue and Harvard Avenue wearing green clothing for a grand squirt gun

event. In recent years, the event has become sanctioned, and is held at Ringer Park.

Allston is nicknamed “Allston Rock City” because of its overabundance of

musicians, bands, and entertainment venues such as Harper’s Ferry, Wonder Bar,

O’Brien’s, and Great Scott. Allston is also home to many musical recording studios,

including Galaxy Park. Allston also hosts the annual Allston D. I. Y. Festival, which

takes place a Ringer Park each July, and features numerous local musical acts. The

even is free, open to all ages, and alcohol free. It features one stage devoted entirely

to acoustic sounds, and another dedicated for electric.

The main streets that run through Allston are Commonwealth Avenue,

Brighton Avenue, Harvard Avenue, and Cambridge Street. One place to pay special

attention to is Packard’s Corner, where Commonwealth Avenue veers off to the left,

and Brighton Avenue begins. There is a lot going on at the intersection, including the

T which runs above ground and down the center of Comm Ave. As cars attempt to

continue on Comm Ave., it is easy to get confused about where the street actually

continues. When cars make the left at Packard’s Corner to stay on Comm Ave, they

are confronted with only a low median sidewalk to distinguish the oncoming lanes

of traffic. Moreover, the right lanes split off into two main lanes, and a third lane

which us used for parking and making right hand turns onto smaller side street.

This side lane is separated from the main lanes by a cement barrier, which cars have

to navigate when continuing onto Comm Ave. from Packard’s Corner. While this

arrangement is hazardous for automobile drivers, it is especially dangerous for

bicycle riders, who should take extra care at this intersection.
