Named for the brooks that formed its boundaries and just a few miles from downtown Boston and bordering The Fenway, Brookline offers both a city atmosphere and suburban areas. Although adjacent to Boston, Brookline has its own identity - a unique mixture of busy streets and rolling countryside, upscale shops and village pubs, gracious apartment buildings and large estates, and home for legions of academic and scientific professionals, who work at the nearby medical centers and colleges in Boston. Itâ€™s a community of 6.6 square miles and almost 55,000 people.
Its major retail centers, like Coolidge Corner, Washington Square and Brookline Village, are bustling pedestrian-oriented shopping areas with a variety of shops - antique stores, coffee shops, bookstores, fresh fruit and vegetable markets, delicatessens and restaurants, all directly on the B, C and D lines of the Green Line.
Although predominantly residential, Brookline is anxious to attract new commercial development, and in just the last two years, the Town has amended its zoning to encourage new growth along its major thoroughfares. There is a large mix of many different kinds of housing in Brookline. With its good schools (both public and private), many accessible forms of transportation, and efficient government, Brookline is a choice spot in which to reside or establish a business.
