Brookline is ranked #1 in 'Best Places to Live in Massachusetts'

As one of the most popular neighborhoods of Greater Boston, the town of Brookline, Massachusetts has been home to Kings Boston since 2012.

Brookline combines the charm of a leafy suburb with the first-class amenities of a major American city. The town is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in New England, and has been ranked Number 1 in 'Best Places to Live in Massachusetts' by Niche.

It has the distinction of having the largest percentage of its population possessing a doctorate degree in the US, at an amazing figure of 14%. Boston University, Boston College, and Northeastern University all have at least one of their campuses in Brookline. The town serves as the bedroom community for the faculty of not only these schools but also the world-famous schools like Harvard University and MIT located just across the Charles River in Cambridge.

Served by MBTA's Green Line (the oldest subway line), Brookline is full of interesting slices of Boston life. The Coolidge Corner is a cluster of restaurants, delicatessens, and the famous Coolidge Corner Cinema — a classic movie house keeping movie history with regular showings of the greatest films of all time. For lovers of the outdoors, Olmsted Park is one of the jewels of Boston's Emerald Necklace system of public parks.

Regardless of season, Brookline is truly a wonderful place to live and study!
