|Chestnut Hill is one of the most confusing neighborhoods in Greater Boston because it encompasses no fewer than two cities and one town -- namely, Brookline, Boston, and Newton. So if you say you live in Chestnut Hill, some people will ask you "so do you live in Brookline, Jamaica Plain (Boston) or Newton?"
What's the difference, you might ask. Schools! If you want your kids to go to Brookline schools, you'll have to get a Brookline address.
The area of Chestnut Hill that's in Newton includes the Chestnut Hill Historic District and also the Chestnut Hill Mall.
