Strolling Wigglesworth Street; Brighton's New Stop; More!

MISSION HILL—Max Grinnell walks through the neighborhood, including down the funniest street (we think) in Boston: "The name Wigglesworth is truly part and parcel of proud Boston genealogy, and their distinguished number includes 17th century clergyman Michael Wigglesworth and noted East India merchant Thomas Wigglesworth. This quaint short street runs from Tremont Street to Huntington Avenue and is distinguished by its long run of late 19th century Second Empire rowhouses, complete with mansard roofs." [Boston Daily]
BOSTON—Boston is one of America's 50 best cities, say people who say Beantown: "With dozens of institutions of higher education, innumerable restaurants, and hundreds of years of history, Beantown is one of America’s great urban environments. The area has done well through the recession, with lower than average unemployment, a low level of foreclosures, and a steady level of high median income." [BusinessWeek]

BRIGHTON—That giant New Brighton Landing project will have its own commuter rail stop: "The station will be the first commuter rail station serving Allston-Brighton ... As dictated by the agreement, New Balance will be responsible for funding the station’s permitting, design and construction costs as well as annual maintenance costs." [BostInno]
