Colby Correctly Praises Mt. Auburn Environs

To the editors:

I just wanted to say I enjoyed reading Edward B. Colby's article on my "Mt. Auburn" neighborhood (News, May 3). It's a great neighborhood and I love living there. I have the Mt. Auburn cemetery to walk, friendly neighbors and I'm close to work. It a neighborhood that bands together in time of need. I've been to many fundraisers at Guido's, which by the way has great food. In the summer there is an Italian Santa Lucia festival Labor Day weekend on Cushing Street, if you're around check it out--it shows the neighborhood in a festive mood.
