Coolidge Corner is what many would describe as the epicenter of Brookline, demarcated by the intersection of Beacon and Harvard Streets. Here you will also find two of Brookline’s most iconic landmarks, the art deco Coolidge Corner Theatre and the S.S. Pierce building, a finely-crafted tudor office building once housing a general store owned by the Coolidge brothers. Coolidge Corner is also home to several other notable places including the birthplace of JFK (on Beals Street) and other area favorites such as the Brookline Booksmith. Both the Booksmith and Theatre are nationally-recognized independent establishments featuring local and national artists and meet and greets with today’s up-and-coming indie book and film artists. The broad avenues around Coolidge corner are lined with restaurants and cafes, banks and local shopping. The Devotion School services this area of Brookline. Public transportation is easily accessed by the C line branch of the MBTA Green Line and a popular cross city bus line between Roxbury and Harvard Square. Commuting to downtown Boston is easily 10 minutes along Beacon Street.
