Why I Love Living In Brookline, MA




Now that the weather has warmed considerably, the trees have completely filled in and the gardens are greener than ever, I 've been refecting on my love for Brookline. Don't people say that "Love Blooms in the spring"? 

What is there not to love about being in a city that has a wide diversity of every culture living here. Singles, DINKS, families, and empty nesters are always out and about in this very walkable town. 



With three trolley lines, including the "B", "C" and "D" lines, there are no parking hassles, and downtown Boston is just a 20 minute train ride... Escaping rush hour traffic is everyone's priority.

I am fortunate to live close to the Jamaica Pond and Chestnut Hill Reservoir in nearby Jamaica Plain. The POND is a 1 1/2 mile walkable pond that is always bustling with joggers, walkers, runners, families and dog walkers. The Reservoir offers a shorter walking trail adjacent to Route 9 East.



In the winter, ice skating at the Larz Anderson Park offers an incredible view and one of the highest elevations in Brookline. This is a hidden gem.

In the summer, Putterham golf offers affordable green fees and a great restaurant to unwind with friends after a round. 

Coolidge Corner is never quiet and it reminds me of Times Square in NYC. There is always plenty of pedestrians and excitement happening. People are carrying Trader Joe shopping bags with their weekly groceries and always wearing a smile on their face.. There are several ethnic restaurants that cater to every craving. Pizza, Chinese, Jewish delis, Middle Eastern and the best brew pubs are right here in our backyard.  There are over 135 restaurants in Brookline's geographic boundaries..

On Thursdays from the middle of June - late September, there is a fabulous farmer's market. You will find incredibly fresh fish, meat, produce and baked items.

The Coolidge Corner Theater offers resident discounts and has a unique theme in each movie room with first run movies and classics- Monty Python anyone? 

Washington Square is also has a unique diversity. 

I could go on and on, but if you are the least bit curious about the town of Brookline, please contact me.
