when i lived in brookline in the 60's and 70's...everything wasn't a condo or townhouse...you owned or rented...and rents were in the $60-80. a month range. it's amazing how obscenely inflated the prices for condo's and homes have become here...it's a shame too..because all the really cool, lower income kids,that could afford to live here back then, have all been replaced by the ones that can afford to live here now..and i bet they won't have half as much fun as we all did back in the day...brookline may be a nice place to live now...but it was the best before all the real estate people took over..and made all the beautiful homes into condo's...or priced them so high, that only a few can afford to buy one...what a shame...

The state-wide referendum vote to end rent-control in 1995 had a lot to do with this, I'm afraid.

oh is that what happened ?...that's really too bad...I'm afraid i haven't been back to brookline or in mass. for many years..i was unaware of that..and the end result of that is out of control real estate prices..my grandparents owned a home on linden street for years..bought it for about $16,000..back in the late twenties/early thirties..that same house now was sold for much, much more than that, but even at inflation prices, it's way overpriced... thank you for sharing that info...
