Longwood Medical Area

Ahh, Longwood Medical Area: the more convenient, but WAY less tranquil alternative to Longwood Station on the D. Oh wait, the D also has a decent schedule and can be reasonably trusted to be on time. As for the E? Yeah, I know I'm just reviewing the stations here, but I'm still gonna diss the E as much as I like!

Ooh, nice curve!
Honestly, Longwood is basically a curved version of Northeastern on a slight hill. I mean, they both have wide platforms, a few wastebaskets, and two shelters. Yes, Longwood lacks outdoor seating and a ticket validator, but other than that, it's basically identical to Northeastern. Umm...yeah, there really isn't much else to say with this one.

That's such a great-looking right-of-way!
Station: Longwood Medical Area

Ridership: Let's see here...wait, this is the busiest station on all of the Green Line branches? 3,813 passengers per weekday? Wow! I guess I underestimated this place! It helps that this station gets both hospital workers and students, as there are many colleges around Longwood Medical Area.

Pros: This is another good E Line in-median station! It has shelters, a wide platform, wastebaskets - basically all of the basic things to be expected at a street stop.

Cons: It does lack outdoor seating and ticket validators, but that's about all that's wrong with this place.

Nearby and Noteworthy: Do you like hospitals? Great! Longwood Medical Area is the place for you! Actually, though, if you don't mind walking, the D is a much better way of getting here. The E is the closest station to colleges like MassArt, though.

Final Verdict: 7/10
Ultimately, I would say this station is just like Northeastern, minus the benches and ticket validator. It does make up for that by being on a rather nice curve, though! Okay, commuters probably don't care about that, but it makes for great pictures.

  1. In addition to the medical workers and college students, the stop's also used by a significant number of students at Boston Latin School, the city's largest high school - most students have to use the T to get to/from school (they get CharlieCards good for unlimited use on subways, buses and even a couple zones on commuter rail).

  3. Medical interpretations need fluent native speaking medical interpreters and translators of the respective language so as to be accurate, but because a clinician who is a Japanese speaker knows some little French is given to act as an interpreter between the doctor and the French-speaking patient, there is no way that interpretation will be free from misinterpretation of some words.generic cancer medicine supplie
