The suburban community of Brookline sits just south west of Boston, between the Charles and Muddy Rivers.
From its humble farmland beginnings in the 1630's the town, which was incorporated in 1705, grew to become, by the 19th century, the richest town in America.
These days it is one of Boston's most prominent suburbs with a large population of Russian and Jewish origin. Battling absorption into the sprawling city of Boston, Brookline has managed to keep a unique mixture of urban and suburban dwellings as well as a mixture of small shops and recreational parks.
Hotels and motels in Brookline are well located for visitors who need easy access to of Harvard Medical School, Simmons College, Wheelock College, Wentworth Institute of Technology and Northeastern University. All Brookline hotels are within 15 miles of Downtown Boston and the airport.
