Recently moved to Brookline. I’m a millennial. Personally I love it here. There’s a holistic health center, yoga, a knitting group, home made ice cream, and a taco stand. The boulevard is up and coming. I know plenty of people in my age group, with college degrees who have recently moved to the area. The charm of the homes, and the accessibility by foot is phenomenal. I moved from a more affluent area of Pittsburgh, and am very satisfied with my first home in Brookline.
Great location to the city for an easy commute. Very affordable living. Brookline blvd is up and coming with some nice dining options but there's a lot so of potential for growth! Excited to see this neighborhood's future
