Before Brookline blossomed into what it is today, it began as a tiny village in Boston called Muddy River. Today, it’s called “home” by around 64,200 residents and is the most populous municipality with a town form of government in Massachusetts.
Brookline sits south of Boston and borders the Charles River. This city is now home to plenty of arts and cultural events and historical sights.
The area is also a cultural hub to Jewish and Irish communities, so there’s no shortage of diverse eateries, with local favorites being Zaftigs Delicatessen and Grainne O’Malley’s.
Locals enjoy the ease of transportation and mix of suburban-urban neighborhoods, as this area was one of the earliest to integrate streetcar systems around Boston.
Whether you want to enjoy a Saturday night touring the John F. Kennedy National Historic Site, a show at the Coolidge Corner Theater, or a summer visit to the Brookline Farmers Market, Brookline is an ideal community for young professionals and families alike.
But because of Brookline’s location on the Charles River and nearby inland bodies of water, including Brookline Reservoir Park and Jamaica Pond, residents are no strangers to the variety of unwanted pests like termites and rodents that make their way into homes and businesses. When this happens, it’s time to call the experts at Greenhow.
