Brookline Village 2012

I’ve been a resident in the town of Brookline Massachusetts since the age of 3. I’ve seen businesses come and business go.  There was such a sense of timelessness when I was young. It was obvious that people cared about spending quality time with family, neighbors and friends. Each main street lined with stores so invitingly enticing you just had to stop in, but making the choice of which one it would be was no easy task. Local Butchers, Fish Markets, Woolworth’s, Bakeries, Family Restaurants and Florists are just some of the examples of the potential array of choices. Today, much of the feeling of a carefree atmosphere has slipped away as the feel of commercialism has a slight edge. Nonetheless, Brookline will always be a visually appealing, welcoming community.

But it’s clear that business is now a very large part of the towns current makeup. Overpriced parking meters, permit parking and violators of permit parking make it difficult for both residents and visitors alike to enjoy their leisure or business throughout the town. One thing is certain, and that’s the fact that Brookline offers a vast number of storefronts to choose from scattered about the town. Many of its corners are quite picturesque. No wonder many parents strive to find homes in the area to raise their young. There are a number of parks placed throughout the town of Brookline that will draw you in. If you need daycare for your child(ren), don’t worry, Brookline has you covered. The school system has made great strides through the years facing new challenges each day with the likes of Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder and Post traumatic Stress issues making it that much harder to reach our children in today’s classrooms. But if support is what our children need, then that is what they will get. There are  a lot of services throughout the town to connect families to that have a child(ren) in need. Brookline has also become home to many doctors in the Longwood medical area therefore further benefiting the residents of the town. As I finish writing this opinion it feels as though I’ve written an ad for potential residents of the town of Brookline. If that is what it is, that is what it is.

One last observation would be that it’s nice to see a town that takes such pride in its appearance and what it values. The Town of Brookline has embraced all those willing to call the town their home, helping everyone find their own niche. It’s hard to imagine Brookline before the 60s when you certainly wouldn’t have seen the melting pot that there is here today. As someone with mixed blood including being 1/2 Native American, I can say that I’m proud to live here today accomplishing something that wouldn’t have been possible before my birth. Thank you for a place to call home and it’s nice to see that it’s “business as usual in the small town of Brookline Massachusetts©.”
