Coolidge Corner, which sits just east of Boston proper in Brookline, holds a spot as one of the most affluent areas of the city. It combines the bustle of thriving commercial areas with residential homes worth well north of $1 million. The area serves as a great compromise for those who want to experience city life while not having to live in the city.
Sitting on an MBTA transit line allows the area to act as the ideal compromise for residents who want upward mobility without feeling cramped. The close-knit community has a spirit that fosters success, both from its residents and its commercial entities.
With a diverse population that includes a large Jewish contingent, Coolidge Corner has become a central location for young professionals, especially those in the education and medical fields. The drive of the area's residents has put it firmly on the map as an upper-echelon area.
