Brookline/ Chestnut Hill
The town of Brookline is bordered on the East by six of Boston’s neighborhoods; Brighton, Alston, Fenway, Kenmore, Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain, and West Roxbury. To the West is the City of Newton. Originally part of Boston Proper, the 6.8 square mile hamlet known as “Muddy River” was independently incorporated in 1705. The Muddy River was set as the Boston/Brookline border which runs along what is now known as the Jamaica Way, part of Federick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace.
Birthplace of America’s 35th president John F. Kenned, Brookline also claims luminance of the Arts, Sciences, and humanities such as Leonard Burnstein, Conan O’Brien, Barbara Walters, Lydia Shire, and Mike Wallace among others as native sons and daughters. The town is known for quality public and private pre-collegiate education with many graduates matriculating to the nation’s most prestigious Colleges and Universities. The close proximity of Brookline to Boston’s medical and financial centers makes it an attractive location for the leaders in Medicine and Business and Finance.
Brookline’s neighborhoods or villages offer retail variety for residents seeking quality cuisine, shopping, services, and entertainment. The Country Club, a private golf course established in 1882 is listed on the USGA’s list of the first 100 clubs in America. The golf course was built in 1893 and has played host to the U.S. Open in 1913, 1963, and 1988; and the Ryder Cup in 1999.
