Local Reviews

I like the proximity to work. There are also a variety of shops and restaurants within walking distance. I enjoy the mixture of ages

I love where I live because it's next to the city. It's easy access to public transportation. You don't really need a car. My favorite restaurant is the Village pizza house of Brookline.

Walking is fun, there are also places where we play sports at, and school is nearby so we can walk together.
