Hammond Street in Newton: the nicest for miles around

Posted by Martin Finucane May 1, 2007 02:54 PM


Do you live on one of the best streets in Boston's western suburbs?

In a ranking by Boston magazine, Hammond Street in Newton held the top spot; Cottage Street in Wellesley ranked second; and Salem End Road in Framingham ranked fifth.

Also on the 15-street list were Pelham Island Road in Wayland, Fair Oaks Park in Needham, Hiilside Road in Franklin, Cedarwood Avenue in Waltham, and Stoneleigh Road in Watertown.

The magazine said it ranked streets based on aesthetics, environment, amenities, public services, affordability, and transit.
