Town of Brookline


Welcome to Brookline!


Located just minutes from Boston, Brookline offers residents and visitors a charming mix of vibrant urban life and attractive suburban amenities.   Brookline is home to a variety of independent boutiques, restaurants and cultural institutions, including the Kennedy National Historic site, Allandale Farm (a working farm dating back to Colonial New England) and the Coolidge Corner Theatre.

Brookline Village:

Just down the street from Coolidge Corner, Brookline Village is where some of the town’s earliest restaurants and shops opened. Brookline Village is known for its casual, independent restaurants and cafes. You will find cuisine from around the world, from Venezuelan to barbecue. The village is also home to a cluster of shops offering antiques, children’s items and more!

Chestnut Hill / Putterham Circle:

Chestnut Hill is the western gateway to Brookline. A beautiful, meticulously groomed area, it is home to grand single family homes, elegant condos, the Putterham Meadows Golf Course, and the Longwood Cricket Club. The Putterham Circle shopping complex offers a collection of popular restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and gift shops.


Coolidge Corner:

The bustling commercial hub of Brookline, Coolidge Corner is a great place to spend a day.  With a variety of small shops, boutiques, and national chains all within walking distance of each other, spend the day poking around local shops, pamper yourself at a local salon and refuel at one of the many restaurants.


St. Mary's Station:

Nestled among classic townhouses and impeccable apartment/condo complexes, St. Mary's Station continues to defy the trend of major retail chains that seem to be popping up everywhere.  In the morning, residents and visitors flock to the numerous breakfast spots only to return again in the evening to dine at one of several popular restaurants.  St. Mary's is also home to a regional grocery and various professional services. 


Washington Square:

Located at the crossroads of Beacon and Washington Streets, you can't miss the 18' Victorian restoration clock.  Whether you are seeking a jeweler, specialty grocer, travel agent, pharmacy or an old fashioned hardware store, Washington Square has them all, fostering a unique small town feel.
