A favorite among young professionals, Oak Square is like a suburb within the city, featuring rows of triple-decker houses and tree-lined side streets. The area features an abundance of non-permit parking and is only a 5-10 minute walk to Brighton Center. There are shops and restaurants along Washington St as well as the MBTA 501,503,57 bus lines. The 64 bus to Central Square runs along Faneuil St, and the MA Pike and Storrow Drive are only 5 minutes away. The area also features a recently built YMCA and Beacon Hill Athletic Club.
