About The Village of Chestnut Hill
Parts of Newton, Brookline and Boston share the name Chestnut Hill and the zipcode 02467 in contiguous geography. Chestnut Hill, which is in the eastern portion of Newton straddles Commonwealth Avenue, Beacon Street and Route 9. Hammond Street generally splits the Newton and Brookline Chestnut Hill sections. Route 9 contains the commerical and retail area of Newton’s Chestnut Hill and has transformed some older strip malls into modern shopping destinations such as The Street and Chestnut Hill Square. If you are looking for a gym (Sports/LA or Equinox) a movie (Showcase Super Luxe) or grocery shopping (Shaws and Wegmans) this is THE place to go. The shops on route 9 are also home to a wide variety of restaurants: Del Friscos Grill, Davio’s Cucina, Legal Seafood, Aquitaine Bis (ask for Eric at the bar), Capital Grill (our favorite steak house), Bernards, Panera Bread, Brio and more.
Part of Chestnut Hill, called Old Chestnut Hill, is an historic area bordered by Hammond Street, Route 9, and Beacon Street. This area has magnificent, antique homes with very high assessed values. The Mary Baker Eddy home is also located in this historic district.
Part of the highly rated Boston College campus is in Chestnut Hill (Go Eagles!)
COMMUTING FROM NEWTON:
If you drive to work or school then you have many road choices to get to Boston. If you work, go to school or even shop North, West or South of Newton you are good shape because Newton is bordered by The Massachusetts Turnpike (or as we say “The Pike”), Route 95/128 and Route 9. Commonwealth Avenue (part of the Boston Marathon Route) and Beacon Street are roads that lead straight into Boston.
Public Transportation is supplied by the Massachusetts Bay Transit System (MBTA…you remember “Charlie on the MTA”). The light rail (Green Line Trolley) into the city of Boston is referred to as “The T” (which, after a century of service, runs past midnight on weekends). Newton also has a commuter rail in the northern part of the city and of course many bus routes within and into Boston.
Chestnut Hill has its own Green Line “T” stop (Chestnut Hill) on Hammond Street, plus a number of stops on the MBTA bus lines.
