Allston-Brighton is one of Boston's most vibrant neighborhoods. Allston Village, defined by Harvard Avenue, includes an eclectic blend of shops, venues, apartments and people attracted to the nightlife that Allston has to offer. While Brighton Center, defined by Market and Washington Streets, is Allston's less rambunctious counterpart. Brighton Center consists of a post office, pharmacy, many locally owned restaurants, diners and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. The Allston-Brighton area is best described as an urbanized suburb with many residential neighborhoods and small businesses. Public transportation is never a problem with all of the major buses, trains, and commuter rails running through the heart of both Allston and Brighton.
