The charming neighborhoods just across the river from Cambridge are popular with students, scholars, skilled workers, and academic professionals due to their proximity to Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston University, and Boston College. The Massachusetts Turnpike Extension provides residents of Allston and Brighton with easy access to downtown Boston and a good commute to the many high-tech and research and development centers located along Routes 128 and 495. Attractive residential choices range from a limited selection of single-family homes along quiet, tree-lined streets to condominiums in a variety of architectural styles. Pleasing neighborhoods that demonstrate a strong sense of civic pride and unique charm contribute to the overall appeal. Amenities include swimming pools, an ice-skating rink, boat landing on the Charles River, and access to the MBTA Greenline and bus routes.
