Oh, right, then I went to Community College. That was slightly less awesome.
|Aw, let's go back to the park...|

Ridership: This station has the fourth-worst ridership on the Orange Line overall, and the worst for its northern section. Community College only gets 4,956 riders per day, which could be attributed to its mostly industrial surroundings. Also, it doesn't have any bus connections, which could contribute to the low amount as well.
Pros: Okay, the pedestrian walkways are an admittedly nice touch. And overall, this station is straightforward for sure. So, um, that's good.
Cons: Two words: brutalist style. Seriously, why does every northern Orange Line station have to be so concrete and bland and awful? Also, it's right under a highway, so don't expect a quiet wait.
Nearby and Noteworthy: This is the closest station to the Bunker Hill Monument, but it's still a bit of a walk. Other than that...well, there's a 99 Restaurant across the street...
Final Verdict: 4/10
Yeah, there isn't much to say about this one. The direct connection to the Bunker Hill Community College and to Charlestown is certainly nice, but the station is so ugly! Brutalist style really doesn't do it for me, and this station has way too much concrete for my liking. Plus, it's right under I-93, which makes it extremely noisy.
