Infamous for [[DrivesLikeCrazy aggressive drivers]] and a multitude of twisty one-way streets that make no sense in navigating (see [[http://static.fjcdn.com/large/pictures/4d/8a/4d8a31_4439601.jpg here]].) The former is less true than the latter, although the difficulty of getting around does encourage aggressive driving. The irregular street patterns can be blamed in part on the fact that Boston was originally built on a multi-lobed peninsula, with land gradually reclaimed all around it: at the time of UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, the only way out by land was through what is now known as Washington Street (not to be confused with two other streets in outlying parts of Boston with the same name), and the Back Bay (one of the few neighborhoods designed around a rectangular street grid) wasn't filled in until the mid-19th century. All told, Boston's streets are still easier to navigate than London's.

Speaking of locals, [[{{Southies}} Hollywood depictions to the contrary]], they are generally very nice people. Just remember not to bring up the [[BigApplesauce New York Yankees]], the [[UsefulNotes/LosAngeles Los Angeles Lakers]], the [[UsefulNotes/{{Montreal}} Montréal Canadiens]], or the [[UsefulNotes/{{Florida}} Miami Heat]]. Otherwise, thou shalt know the true meaning of SeriousBusiness.
