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!|
|That’s such a great-looking right-of-way!|
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.

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).
can confirm as a BLS student who uses it (although i normally take the 39 as opposed to the green line) – the inbound train around 2:20 can get so crowded with students from here that the driver sometimes has to kick people off! it’s only highly saturated with BLS students at certain times of day of course, but we definitely are significant contributors to the high ridership!
Since when have you been reviewing STEM CELLS? (Lol)
There are alot of fake comment ads, do you know anything about them?
Wow, that’s a lot of them! I know these are mostly holdovers from when this blog was on Blogger and it wouldn’t notify me when I got comments. Guess I’ll go ahead and delete the ones on here…
