    Default Downtown

    As we say "I live downtown",
    What would be the correct form:


    I live in Boston downtown
    I live Boston dowtown
    I live in Boston's dowtown
    I live Boston's downtown
    I live in dowtown of Boston


    Could you explain me why?

    thanxs!

    I'm not an American, but I think that the usual way is to say either, "I live in downtown Boston." or "I live in Boston, downtown."
