I am considering moving out of Brookline and on to the North Shore... currently looking to find a more affordable, yet nice community, close to Boston. I looked at Winthrop, Revere and Malden...can anyone be kind and give me some input of the most suitable town for a single middle aged woman? I am open to other suggestions as well. Thanks a lot!

So... what does single middle age women like? Being a guy, I'm clueless as usual.

If you can articulate your like and dislike, I'm sure more people can help you. What do you like or not like about Brookline?

how affordable?
How close to Boston?
What do you mean by nice?

The towns you mention...median income is much less..

Default nice community great rental

Hello,
You may want to take a look at Nahant...next town after Revere and an island 100 yrs ago....surrounded in beaches, strictly residential with many singles(numbers ?), extremely low crime, protected from condomania which destroyed Cape Cod. I have a home for rent in a quiet neighborhood , single elderly woman next door, and 45 sec. walk to the beach. You can email me at oki_brendori@hotmail.com and rent is very reasonable.You won't believe this town and house. Boston Globe called it the "gem of the north". Home is 3 bedroom,fireplace,garage, and private. Grounds are upkept by owner...grass and tree trimming. I own another luxury home direct on the ocean with 2 units...2 bdroom lower unit with firplace; 2 full bath ,kitch and liv.rm..... views to make you breathless....no house in sight.... not avail until Sept 08 but may be worth the wait...this is a must see. Furnished is possible. Its only avail for short term top end rental but this changes in Sep 09

Cool Try Beverly or Manchester-By-The Sea

Try Beverly its a nice community right next to Salem or Manchester-By-The-Sea....You might also consider Gloucester Or Rockport if you're moving out on Cape Ann

there's commuter rail access into Boston, close to 128 ../95/route 1 ..and the seacoast of NH and Mass. for recreation. - lots of good seafood restaurants and other restaurants in the area, and clam shacks in Ipswich. Not far from the North Shore mall area in Peabody and close to Salem as well.

You can get local beach passes and use any of the town beaches.



Wakefield, Winchester, Arlington, Woburn are good picks as well.

Smile beverly-Manchester-By the Sea

Both Beverly and Manchester By the Sea are nice areas between Boston and Cape Ann..(on Cape Ann actually) Coastal communities.

lots of recreation options, great seafood restaurants and clam shacks in the area, and small new england towns!
Beverly also has a nice music theater (The North Shore Music Theater in the round) with off broadway shows. run by all volunteers.....

Manchester By the Sea has a great beach - (Singing beach) and both are on the T into Boston (MBTA) so you could easily get to the sea. Beverly has more than one T station.
