Hi all,

Looking for recommendations on where to live.

We currently live in Natick. My husband works in Framingham, I'm looking at possibly working in the Longwood Medical Campus area. We have a toddler (13 months old) and we want a good kid friendly place with excellent schools. Not too keen on Wellesley as I find it absurd that even with professional parents with two very good incomes, she'd be the "poor kid" there...We're primarily looking at the Newtons along the D line and Needham.

We are looking for a place where neither of us has a bad commute.
1. Which area is recommended? Other suggestions?
2. Which is better for LMA: Green D to Longwood versus Commuter Rail to Ruggles. Other options?

Newton sounds perfect. Sorry I don't know about the train line differences. Best wishes.

You did not mention a price range. Why not stay in Natick?

Thanks! @GF: budget is likely $650,000 or less for a house....and staying in Natick: We thought about it but ideally, I'd like to walk to public trans that will get me to Longwood (commuter rail in Needham or D Line in one of the Newtons) and/or live more at a midpoint b/t husband's work and the transp. station.
