Apartment Rentals :: Brookline MA
Brighton, Massachusetts is a large suburb west of Boston, and is the perfect combination of urban and suburban life. Brighton is closer to Boston College and offers residential areas with many beautiful homes that have been converted into apartments as well as ample open spaces. Much of Brighton along Commonwealth Avenue is comprised of large turn of the century brick buildings, serviced by the MBTA's Green Line. Brighton has three separate neighborhoods each offering its own unique charm. Cleveland Circle is the most densely populated area and is closest to B.C. It offers a wide array of restaurants, shops, and bars; a park with ball fields; ice skating rink; community pool; and, a large reservoir with a 1 mile jogging path around it. This area is great for those commuting to the city since the MBTA's B, C, and D subway lines all converge in this area. The Brighton Center and Oak Square areas are neighborhoods that are a little quieter at night, but still have no shortage of restaurants, cafes and nightlife. Locally owned businesses are mixed with national chains along Washington Street, which runs straight through Brighton Center to Oak Square. Set amid hills and well preserved Victorian houses, this is a great area for those who desire a distinctive small town feel.
