Commonwealth Community Profile: Newton

Newton Massachusetts is home to the Boston College Eagles, the historic Brae Burn Country Club, and as the home of notable people from a range of disciplines, including drama (actors Jack Lemmon, Matt LeBlanc, and John Krasinski), literary arts (Isaac Asimov, David Mamet) and comedy (Louis C.K.). It is also the home of legendary corporate leaders such as Robert Kraft and Sumner Redstone.

One of the little known facts about Newton is that it is one of the state’s larger cities, with 85,150 residents (11th most populous) and 18.2 square miles of territory (29th largest.) The community offers MBTA access to Boston (bus, subway and commuter rail), low crime rate, high-ranking schools and more recently, ‘green’ energy standards (in 2012, Newton announced that it purchases all of its energy via clean energy generation.)

No wonder the city was recently named the “Best City to Live In” by a national financial news and opinion outlet!

Newton remains one of the nation’s oldest communities (it was settled in 1630) and boasts a historically rich past as one of America’s earliest commuter suburbs (located 7 miles from downtown Boston, it’s easy to see why.)

The suburb’s convenient location makes it a hotspot for real estate, with the average 2014 home price valued at $819, 600, up 7% increase from 2013.
