Brookline

About

Brookline

Located just 4 miles from downtown Boston, Brookline is a sophisticated blend of urban and suburban lifestyle.  Brookline borders six different Boston neighborhoods, is just over 6 sq miles and has a population of about 60,000 residents.  I bought my first condo in Brookline in 1999 and quickly fell in love with everything about the charming town.  From the sunset views from my third-floor walk-up to the proximity of Fenway Park, Brookline is a walking town and if you get tired of walking, a bus or T stop is certain to be nearby.  Brookline is probably best known for its many varieties of eateries.  From Kosher to Indian to Chinese to Irish pubs, there is something for everyone.

Brookline consistently tops many best place to live lists.  This culturally rich town offers several idyllic villages including Coolidge Corner, Brookline Village and Washington Square where shops and restaurants prevail.

Brookline is home to The Country Club (a favorite golf course of the rich and/or famous) as well as the world-famous Larz Anderson Park, a 64 acre park offering an automobile museum, a skating rink, baseball fields, reflective pools, skyline views of Boston and many picnic areas.  Brookline is also the home to the JFK Birthplace and the home of Frederick Law Olmsted, the nation’s foremost park maker.  A visit to this park will not disappoint! 

Brookline’s school system is very highly regarded and has a different model from many other towns.  They have one school that students stay in from K-8 then they go on to the High School.  There are many proponents of this model and just one reason Brookline could be so popular among parents.

Brookline has Route 9 running through it from West to East as well as Commonwealth Ave and Beacon Street.  Brookline is adjacent to the Longwood Medical area of Boston, the Arnold Arboretum area of Jamaica Plain, the nightlife section of Allston/Brighton and the suburbia of Newton.
