We moved to Newtonville in 2000. Newtonville has quiet streets that are walking distance to the small town area that has Star Market, Starbucks, Great Harvest Bread, 5 restaurants, ice cream, dry cleaners CVS and small businesses. Also Newtonville has a commuter rail stop. It has easy access to the Pike, Logan Airport and Boston. People are very friendly and there are lots of families and dogs. Newtonville is a very active community - lots of folks run/walk/jog on the carriage lane and we are at mile 19 of the Boston marathon. We've loved our 17 years here raising our daughter.
Newtonville is a great suburb for Boston living! Close but not too close and safe. Great schools, great shopping and easy commuting too.
