2008 BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN MASSACHUSETTS FROM CNN/MONEY:NEWTON, WALTHAM, BROOKLINE

This year's "Best Places to Live" list features three Massachusetts cities, Newton, Waltham, and Brookline. Not only do these three cities have their own personality, but their proximity to Boston and all that this historic city has to offer-museums, theater, colleges and universities! Here is a top-line look at these cities and the single family homes presently on the market. Newton, with "endless things to do", actually has eight different neighborhoods, each with their own post office. Waltham, "relatively affordable" and 12 miles from downtown Boston, has changed with the arrival of high-tech and pharmaceutical companies. It is also famous for its wide range of restaurants. Brookline, "a suburb that doesn't feel like a suburb" actually abuts Boston. All of these towns feature excellent public transportation! Please call or email for more information on any of the cities!
