My wife and I have not owned a car in about 30 years, and we love the fact that we can walk everywhere and there’s lots to see and do in the neighborhood. "David Maister
David Maister and his wife, Kathy, have lived in Downtown Boston for more than 30 years, but they only moved to Avery Street in 2011 – and they love it!
As a lover of popular music from all eras the Theater District is a perfect fit for David. He has teamed up with Emerson College's ArtsEmerson program to host talks about musicians and musical history. As an active member of the Downtown Boston Residents' Association he has also led public neighborhood singalongs featuring Broadway tunes, holiday music and more.
“ArtsEmerson has been very generous in allowing me to use the Bright Family Screening Room inside the Paramount Center!” said Maister, who was a professor at the Harvard Business School, a global management consultant and has written or co-written 13 books on various aspects of business and management.
Moving to Avery Street came as a surprise to the Maisters as they weren’t looking to move from Back Bay, but did so after finding a condo that provides magnificent views while overlooking the Boston Common. "When we found our new home high in the sky overlooking the Boston Common, our hearts were stolen by the wonderful views," said David.
One of his favorite things about living in Downtown Boston is the accessibility.
“My wife and I have not owned a car in about 30 years, and we love the fact that we can either walk everywhere (and there’s lots to see and do in the neighborhood), or we can take advantage of all the public transportation to get anywhere else in the city. We really feel like we’re living in the hub of The Hub.”
