BROOKLINE VILLAGE has a feeling all its own! Compared to some of the New York neighborhoods like So Ho and the Village, this area has both the charm of a small town and the convenience of a city. It too is influenced by its proximity to the Longwood Medical Area and the D-Line of the T service, but has the added distinction of being the site of Town Hall, Police Headquarters, the main Fire Station, and the main branch of the Public Library. The PIERCE SCHOOL is another focus of this diverse community.
It is also in close proximity to Brookline’s High School.
To the west of Brookline Village is a neighborhood identified most by its proximity to
Brookline High school, the only High School in town. Close to the High School you have a T-Stop on the D-Line of the Greenline, a very large town operated indoor swimming pool/ Recreation facility and a number of large open playing fields. The Town is very proud of the High School, which ranks academically in the top percentile in the State. In 1997, Brookline began a $53 million expansion and renovation of the High School and will be the envy of other communities for years to come. The housing stock surrounding the school consists of a number of quality single family homes, a few multi-family houses, and only a very small of larger buildings. The result is a very sought-after residential community in very close proximity to both Brookline Village and Coolidge Corner.
To the south of the Village lie two important neighborhoods, PILL HILL and THE POINT. Pill Hill, a local Historic District neighborhood, has some of the finest collection of large Victorian-style homes in the area. Its name comes from the fact that the neighborhood is in very close proximity to the Longwood Medical Area, a Women’s Hospital (converted to The Park Condominiums), and at the foot of the hill was the old Brookline Hospital (now the site of an assisted living community). Over the years the area has attracted a large population of doctors and their families. THE POINT abuts PILL HILL and the Boston City Line community of Jamaica Plain. The housing stock consists of more modest homes including many two and three family houses. In recent years, the neighborhood’s multi-family housing stock has gone through the condo conversion process increasing the number of owner occupied homes in the neighborhood. PILL HILL and THE POINT residents are very proud of their LINCOLN SCHOOL a recently rebuilt primary school boasting a beautiful structure and a sought-after curriculum.
