City Guide
Moving to Northborough

When looking for places for rent make sure you take some time to figure out exactly what you're looking for. In Northborough, there are all types of apartments for rent from studio apartments to condo rentals. There are single-family home rentals and apartment complexes. So, it's important to know how you want to live and what kind of space you require.

When renting an apartment in Northborough, you'll have to provide all the usual documentation like identification and proof of income. This can be in the form of W-2s, pay stubs or sometimes even a tax return. All landlords are different and for some you may have to have a credit check run and sometimes even a background check. These may cost you some extra money so be prepared!

You'll likely have to fill out an application and this may also have an associated fee. The money continues to flow, out that is, when you are approved. The good news is that you now have the apartment or house rental that you wanted, but you have to come up with the first month's rent, a security deposit and sometimes the last month's rent, too. This can all add up pretty fast so, again, just be prepared and you should have smooth sailing through the whole process.

Northborough has Route 290 running through the northern end of town and Route 9 just clips the southern end. This makes it pretty easy to get to Boston, 33 miles away, just as the marker says, and Worcester that's just over 10 miles away.

Town Center: The town center is where Route 20 meets Route 135 and here you will find the typical town green, library and town hall. The most populated streets are in this area, but even though you are in town, you will still likely need a car to get anything done.

West Main Street: This area includes areas north and west of the city center. Finding an apartment rental in this area of Northborough puts you in easy driving distance to Route 290, perfect if you are commuting into Worcester or up north.

Woodside: This area stretches out from the town center to the east towards Marlborough. There is easy access to Route 495 via Route 20 and the housing is quite spread out. There won't be anything within walking distance here so a car is a must.

Living in Northborough

Little League is big here and the town still reveres its 15 minutes of major league fame provided by Northborough native Mark Fidrych. Fid - that's what you'll call him if you don't want to seem green - was a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers and won the 1976 American League Rookie of the Year award.
