Brookline-The Best of Urban and Surburban Living
Brookline was originally founded as "Muddy River"- part of Boston, until in incorporated in 1705, and it resisted a later attempt at annexation by Boston. It's easy to see why- bordered by Boston on 3 of 4 sides, it is a peninsula reaching into the city.
Considered to have one of the finest school systems in the state, excellent public transportation access and highly convenient to important Boston areas like the Longwood Medical Center and the Financial District, Brookline has long been one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Greater Boston area. Quiet, tree-lined and neighborly, you'd be amazed at how quickly you can walk, bike or ride to Fenway Park or any of the other destinations in Boston.
You might not want to go very far though- Brookline has its own thriving social scene. Coolidge Corner is home to a legendary movie theater and great shops, famous delis and restaurants. Washington Square has developed one of the most well regarded culinary scenes in the area, and Brookline Village is also home to more great shops and restaurants. Anywhere you decide to live in this charming town, you'll be a short trip to something new and exciting.
