All About

Living in Newton, MA

Apartments in Newton, located west of Boston, offer perhaps a quieter way of life than is presented in the New England metropolis.

However, people with apartments in Newton still have plenty to do on their own turf, while still having access to Boston. Both the Massachusetts Turnpike and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's Green Line B trolley are located nearby, as are bus lines.

A number of educational purposes can be satisfied for those with apartments in Newton. For example, Boston College has a campus located nearby, and the local public school system provides for younger students.

Those with Newton apartments will find the town centers on a park complex, where the seat of local government is found. There, people will also find a number of bodies of water, including the City Hall Pond.

Bulloughs Pond is also located nearby, as is the Newton Cemetery. The latter takes up quite a bit of ground, and might prove interesting to history buffs.

For those who get tired of the Newton Cemetery, the East Parish Burying Ground is located near BC's Newton Campus. The college's property also features a number of fields, while Edmands Park is situated just west.

While people who want to go to Boston may consider public transportation, a drive down Commonwealth Avenue may also prove attractive, especially for those looking for a more scenic route. Along the way, drivers will encounter BC's main campus and the Chestnut Hill Reservoir.
