Festival of the UHauls, 2011.

Boston is a great college town. It has just under 300 colleges serving up a mixed bag of book learning to 250,000 eager students.

I have the pleasure of living in a neighborhood that caters to the needs of this bulbous student population. Surrounded by fast food restaurants, bars and laundromats, my condominium is next to the subway line almost exactly between Boston University and Boston College. With a considerable supply of affordable apartments, it’s the ideal location for parents to dump their kids for four years.

Roughly 150,000 of these kids exit Boston in the spring when school ends and return over the Labor Day weekend. We call it the Festival of the UHauls.
