Newton

Newton is a suburban city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. It is approximately seven miles west of downtown Boston and is bordered by Boston to the east. Rather than having a single city center, Newton is a patchwork of thirteen "villages". According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the population of Newton was 85,146, making it the eleventh largest city in the state.

Newton is served by three modes of mass transit run by the MBTA: light rail, commuter rail, and bus service. Newton's proximity to Boston and easy commute, along with its good public schools and safe and quiet neighborhoods, make it a desirable community for those who commute to Boston.

Newton has consistently ranked as one of the best cities to live in the country. In August 2012, Money magazine named Newton the fourth best small city to live in America.

Newton was settled in 1630 as part of "the newe towne", which became Cambridge in 1638; it became its own town in 1688. There are several historical sites of interest in the Newton area. These include Crystal Lake (which is fronted by several historical homes), the East Parish and West Parish Burying Grounds, and the Jackson Homestead, which now houses the Newton History Museum. Historian and local resident Diana Muir has written of the history surrounding Bullough's Pond; a scene from the 2008 production of The Women was also filmed there.
