Small wealthy community. It is a very safe place to raise children and conduct business. I wish it were more diverse, the entire population appears to be white, minus college students and seminarians. Overall a nice place though the cost of living is enormous.

A Beautiful town with parks on every corner. The best place North of Boston to raise a family - schools are phenomenal and it is close to all the larger North Shore cities have to offer.
Lots of low-wage jobs that are good for students, otherwise most job opportunities are small businesses.
