Brighton, Boston MA

real estate broker brighton boston ma

Rivaling its hipster sibling, Allston, Brighton is more than just a college neighborhood. Although filled with students, Brighton’s history, families, businesses, and the overall community have built the area into today’s suburban-city paradise. Residents are drawn in by the city’s convenient amenities with more space than living in central Boston. Although the overall age may be brought down by local college goers, young families’ presence is growing. Turning this once college town into a long-term suburb balancing city life with well-manicured parks and room for expansion.

Community

A fair percentage of Brighton’s residence is made up of college students attending local universities such as Boston College and Boston University. The other, still predominant population is young professionals and families who remain longer-term residents. It is this population that creates the overall sense of community in Brighton. Locals say that recently, a firm emphasis has been placed on these young families, sprouting more and more family-friendly events and green spaces for furry friends and young children.

Appeal

brighton night life

Numerous events and an active nightlife keep young residents exceptionally happy. For young professionals, the lively bar scene involves the Corrib Pub and Devlin’s. Lifelong Brighton residents prefer a stool at the Last Drop or the Stockyard. As new construction flows in, more hotspots are emerging like Brighton Bodega. Brighton and Allston’s lines do not stop residents from crossing over and enjoying food and drink from mainstays like Deep Ellum, The Model, Teresa’s Market, MDM noodles, Jim’s Deli, or Tasca. Not to mention Cleveland Circle — many may recognize the scenery from the Showtime series SMILF — containing scenes from inside favorites such as Pino’s Pizza and Eagles Deli. Overall, Brighton’s convenience, local business, and proximity to neighboring towns keep residents satisfied and new college students searching for affordable real estate for post-graduation moves.

Unique Aspect

Brighton is different from other Boston neighborhoods because its people live alternative lifestyles. Known for being liberal, creative, and open-minded, anyone with these qualities is welcome to be a Brightonian. The eclectic mix of people gives Brighton a distinct character known to be unphased by monetary gain and more focused on laid-back and happy living. The relaxed vibe exudes a stress-free nature among the community. Bright colors, street art, coffee shops at every corner, and giant murals follow in suit with this type of neighborhood energy. Overall, the happy and inclusive atmosphere makes Brighton unlike any other.
