Notice: Hello,
I am coming to the Boston area soon and need a place for about a month, perhaps two. I can come any time now. I haven't booked my flight yet as I prefer to get the housing squared away first. Any place along the red line subway line -- Charles, Kendall, Harvard, Porter, Davis -- or along the green line, preferably Brookline area, would be fine. I am willing to rent an apartment or a share an apartment or rent a room in a non-smoker's house (with kitchen privileges, please).
Kindly contact me a.s.a.p. so I could then book my flight. I would like to be back in Italy No later than Nov. 10th.
