A suburb of Boston bordering on Brighton and Newton founded in 1705 while much of the area was still farmland.
It is slightly more upscale than Brighton (which is a favorite of students) although many students and younger people do live there, and unlike many other places in the Boston area, there is ample parking.

They've got really nice place in Brookline.
