I love Newton and have lived here most of my life. Newton is a dynamic city of over 80,000. We break into 13 distinct "villages" - each with it's own center, unique character and zip codes. http://www.newtonma.gov/residents/villages/%5Cdefault.asp
Newton is a great place to raise a family. We are especially proud of our public schools which are rated among the best in the nation. http://www.newton.k12.ma.us/ Newton holds the distinction of "Safest City in the US" and has consistently been ranked as one of the best US cities to live. http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/09/17/24-7-wall-st-50-best-cities-to-live/15736533/
Newton is also home to many private educational and religious institutions at all levels serving diverse populations; hospitals, convenient public transportation and major commuter routes to Boston- only 7 miles to the east. Newton has a wealth of gracious and historic homes, parks and recreation areas including Charles River boating and a sandy, family friendly beach on Crystal Lake. If culture is your thing, we've got theatre, music and dance in abundance - and of course lots of great restaurants and shopping.
Brookline is a very cool, vibrant and diverse place to live. The many amenities - abundant public transportation, beautiful historic architecture and neighborhoods, lovely parks and recreation areas, cultural organizations, shopping and dining destinations, excellent public and private schools and walking distance to Boston make Brookline popular with young and old alike.
