I moved to the North End two years ago. I've lived in the same apartment the whole time and I absolutely love it. It is perfect for me - close to my friends and work and I have a great deal. However, I have one issue with my apartment, I am not allowed to hang a clothes line outside! I live on the top floor, so it would be super-easy to set one up on the roof, but I signed in my lease that I wouldn't. Hmmphh.
Air drying clothes is great because your clothes won't shrink, it preserves the colors, you'll save energy and money, and the sun makes your whites whiter! I know that people want to keep the North End looking clean because it is such a tourist destination, but I happen to think clothes lines are cute and quaint! I'm sure the tourists wouldn't mind!
