Working in Belmont
I love the location from the city and feel it's an extension of Cambridge and Boston thus having diversity. However, I think that other towns achieve a better sense of identity, like Lexington. Love diversity!
The schools are great! It is a small town, so there is little to no public transportation within the town, but there are busses to the surrounding cities. It is very safe, people don't even feel the need to lock their doors during the day.
My family goes back multiple generous in Belmont, the “The Town of Homes”. It doesn’t go without reason that many residents have deep roots in this area. The public high school is annually ranked in the top 15 in the state, plenty of small businesses can thrive in Belmont Center and Cushing Square, and it’s an all around really safe town (thank you to the Belmont Police, Fire Department and first responders for all that you continue to do.) Real estate is expensive and competitive but as a suburb of Boston with a great reputation that should be expected. A wonderful place to grow up, a good area for access and transportation to the city, and a friendly residential population that I’m happy to live alongside.
