Newton, approximately 7 miles west of downtown Boston, has a population of 85,000, making it the eleventh largest city in the state. Newton is comprised of 13 “villages”, each with its own distinct character and many containing their own small downtown areas, so it feels more like a grouping of smaller towns.

One of these, Chestnut Hill, is home to Boston College. Known as a regional education center, the city is also home to Andover Newton Theological School, Mount Ida College, and Pine Manor College.

Major industries in the city include publishing, computer technology, and manufacturing of precision instruments and chemicals.

Newton schools are highly ranked.  That, combined with its proximity to the city of Boston and ample public transportation make it a desirable place to live.
