Getting Ready for Another Boston MarathonApril 14, 2012
It’s mid-April and that can only mean one thing to a Bostonian – Marathon Monday is right around the corner. Spectators will stretch for miles to cheer runners across the finish line on Monday, April 16th. The marathon begins in Hopkinton and ends 26.2 miles later in Copley Square – right in the heart of the Back Bay Boston neighborhood. The best place to watch the race is from a Boston luxury condo rooftop near the finish line – you get a priceless aerial view.
Setup began last week, and residents of nearby Boston neighborhoods are navigating the streets carefully. On race day, all business located along the route will be closed and roads blocked off. It’s smart to double check the marathon route and revise your commuting path if needed.
Brookline falls about ¾ of the marathon route. Brookline is ideal for families who like the close proximity to the city, but enjoy the comforts of a small community, great schools, and a relaxed lifestyle. If you’re looking for a more urban feel, Brookline has many Boston luxury condos, but the gems are found in the historic single family homes. You will not find cookie cutter homes here, each is unique and remarkable.
Wherever you decide to watch the race, it’s an energetic and exciting experience. Adding to the positive energy of Marathon Monday, I have a new listing going on the market next week in Beacon Hill. Tucked away from the marathon route, historic Beacon Hill is a gorgeous residential area with distinctive architecture and winding cobble stone streets. The Boston neighborhood is certainly a lovely place to call home. Check my website for more details and photos next week.
