About Brookline

Bordering many Boston neighborhoods and Newton, Brookline is one of Boston’s most desirable suburbs. Niche.com ranked Brookline the #1 Suburb in America in 2015, based on factors such as employment rate, housing, transportation, safety, activities and weather. It is home to two National Park Sites, the John F. Kennedy National Historic Site & the Frederick Law Olmsted; Allandale Farm, a working farm dating back to colonial New England; the Coolidge Corner Theatre; and the Larz Anderson Auto Museum. Brookline is easily accessible from Boston and the surrounding towns, via the B, C, and D MBTA lines.

It is also a very walkable community and walking the streets is perhaps the best way to discover all the Town has to offer. Start your day by strolling the charming streets of Brookline Village and then head up Harvard St. to Coolidge Corner to do some shopping and to grab some lunch. Spend the afternoon observing the historic architecture along Beacon Street before treating yourself to a world-class dinner at one of the many popular restaurants in Washington Square.

The Brookline Public School system is highly ranked within Massachusetts. The community is served by Brookline High School and eight K-8 schools: Baker School, Devotion, Driscoll, Heath, Lawrence, Lincoln, Pierce, and Runkle. It is also home to several higher education institutions: Pine Manor College, Hellenic College, Newbury College, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, and parts of Boston University, Boston College, and Wheelock College.
