I recently moved from California to this town, it’s a very rural town. It’s very family friendly but basically everything is closed by 8. It doesn’t have its public school and it shares with the neighboring city Hollis. They’ve recently been talking about separating from Hollis, but they don’t have their own school and don’t know what to do with the students. With it being a rural town if you can’t drive you won’t be able to get around. And it’s on the upper end of middle-class, so it might be to pricy for some people. There are some new builds, if people wanted to move in, but a lot of the others buildings are a bit old. It’s not a bad city, but fairly quiet.
My family and I absolutely love living here! A very friendly community, with plenty of privacy. The school system is one of the top rated in the state, and plenty of shopping options in nearby Nashua and Amherst.
The town of Brookline is a great rural area that feels like home immediately when you enter it. Although the taxes are high, the community is tight knit and extremely friendly. There are plenty of activities to do in the small town of Brookline. There are family owned restaurants, a church, a lake to go boating and fishing, snow mobile trails, an outdoor ice skating rink in the winter, ball parks, and playgrounds. Also, the education is absolutely amazing. Hollis Brookline High School is in the top 5 best schools in New Hampshire.
