About Brighton

Brighton is frequently lumped into the Allston/Brighton "neighborhood", even though Allston is its own unique neighborhood.

Want to see what it's like on the ground? Take a Google Maps "street view" stroll through Brighton!

Families, who have called Brighton home for generations, share the neighborhood with recent immigrants, students from nearby colleges, and young professionals who flock to the area in droves on account of the area's relatively affordable housing costs. The housing varies between Boston's ubiquitous wooden triple-deckers, more suburban single family homes, and stately brick apartment buildings.

In the southwest corner of the neighborhood, the Chestnut Hill Reservoir features a popular shoreline walking trail.
