Don't move to roxbury, cheap as hell because it is hell. Cambridge is very nice but possibly pricey. South boston has a lot of people just out of college getting situated and starting work.

Depends on what you are looking for. Brookline is cool if you like living near the city and take the train everywhere. Parking is terrible out there. The south shore is nice, beaches malls etc. Hingham, Cohasset, are expensive towns. Quincy, weymouth, braintree are reasonable but you probably will need a car. North shore has some nice areas too, but you will need a car.

First thing, look for something near the T (subway in Boston). You absolutely will regret it if you're not within walking distance of the T as you just won't get the benefits of living in this area. I highly recommend something on the Red Line. Many folks will recommend Alston/Brighton. But that is the Green Line and I guarantee you'll be b*tching about Red Sox home game days and general slowness of that line. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Sox fan, but the Green Line is a huge PITA on game days. The Red Line is my suggestion to anyone moving to the area. You've got great Squares (Central, Harvard, Porter, Davis) along the northern half of that line with a LOT going on. Davis Square on the Red Line is my favorite and I lived there for about 8 years. You've also got decent access to highways from that area whereas other not as much. While I've never lived there, I have friends who live in JP (Jamaica Plain) section of Boston on the southern part of the Red Line and they love it.

Check out Cambridgeport, Inman square in Cabridge or Davis Square in Sommerville. All very cool neighborhoods for young professionals and can be much cheaper than the trendy neighborhoods of Boston (North end, Backbay, South End etc.).
