Neighborhoods: Coolidge Corner, Brookline Village, Cleveland Circle, Washington Square, South Brookline, Chestnut Hill.
Why Visit: Great restaurants and historic buildings. Plenty to do and plenty to see! Check out the views from Corey Hill, watch a movie at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, or grab the best corned beef you’ve ever had at Mike’s Deli.
Why Live There: An excellent downtown alternative that has everything downtown has to offer but with more square footage and more greenery: parks, public transportation (B, C, and D trains on the green line), shopping, culture, and plenty of people walking around to give it that city feel.
