Front desk (desk captain): Angela Bowen
Angela is originally from Butte, Montana. Her hobbies include sewing, arts and crafts, and playing the Doumbek (a small, middle-eastern drum).
Angela recommends residents try the hop-on, hop-off trolley tour.It meanders through town in a relaxing way to see the sights. One stop is at Kendall Square, but you can get on and off at multiple other stops throughout the city. The Boston Duck Tour is also a nice way to see the sights.
Front desk (weekends): Marsha Herring
Marsha has lived in Boston for 17 years. As a child, she lived in all sorts of interesting locations due to her father's job as a Marine. The last place she grew up was in Georgia, so she refers to that place as her home. Her parents now reside in Kansas. Marsha doesn't enjoy hot weather very much, but likes the cooler seasons that Boston offers.
Marsha enjoys iced tea (not coffee!). She often makes her own tea by leaving it in the sun. She enjoys all kinds of iced tea (fruit, green, etc), but her favorite kind is the original black type. If you ever visit Marsha's house, you will find lots of iced tea there!! Marsha also enjoys milk chocolate, but she has to be in the mood for it.
Marsha recommends that residents of the Warehouse enjoy the location of the building in proximity to the Charles River. Marsha on occasion takes a nice, leisurely walk along the river and also enjoys roller skating there. Marsha also recommends visiting Faneuil Hall and if possible, visiting her home city of Newton. In Newton, which is only 15 minutes away by car, one can go swimming in Crystal Lake on a beautiful day.
