I have some weird gut feeling about the cities I'm looking at, and I'm pretty sure it's mostly unfounded, but we have a potential lead on a house in Malden and for some reason I'm not excited. I'm not sure if it's just because it's east, because it would require G to use route 1 to commute or because I haven't been many places in melrose. Saugus kind of feel off my radar for almost the same reason and I would love to know why.
I'm going to do a drive by tomorrow to check out the traffic noise from 99, so maybe I can shake the unknown feeling.
EDIT: oops, I meant Malden, not melrose and replaced it.
EDIT2: Malden as a pay as you throw policy, which means you have to buy special trash bags at $2 each. While I like the concept, having to use one kind of bag is vaguely annoying.
