Newton is a great city. There are so many communities that make up Newton. There is something for everyone. Newton is also known for its T line and direct access to downtown Boston. Your house proximity to the T line is really a matter of preference.. Its like I say to my clients in Newton and Wellesley. THe T and train run thru the whole town whether you are at $400,000 or $4 million. After awhile it becomes white noise and you really dont notice it anymore.
