Welcome to Newton
Newton (approx. pop. 85,000) is a suburban city located 7 miles west of center city Boston, situated between the neighborhoods of Brighton and West Roxbury. Lacking a town center, Newton is instead comprised of 13 charming villages. It is consistently ranked among the best US cities to live in and, in 2012, was rated the fourth best small city to live in by Money magazine. Originally settled in 1630, Newton is home to some of Massachusetts’ most famous historical attractions, including Crystal Lake, the East Parish and West Parish Burying Grounds and the Jackson Homestead. Newton, affectionately known as The Garden City, also houses Boston College. Its thirteen villages are as follows: Auburndale, Chestnut Hill, Four Corners, Newton Centre, Newton Corner, Newton Highlands, Newton Lower Falls, Newton Upper Falls, Newtonville, Nonantum, Oak Hill, Thompsonville and Waban.
