Cleavland Circle Neighborhood

Cleveland Circle (an area of Boston) is located in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood. Its close proximity to Brookline and Chestnut Hill makes it a highly desirable spot. Families, seniors, working professionals and students enjoy this historical streetcar neighborhood.


Brighton’s Cleveland Circle, is located in the Aberdeen section of Brighton. More specifically this area represents the south west corner of Aberdeen which was developed in the 19th century as an area for well-to-do commuters.  In general, the Aberdeen area was characterized by winding ways set out through rugged, ledgy and wooded terrain. Its streets still bear English and Scottish names that were apparently thought by late 19th century developers to add to the allure and status of a residential development.
