Support Brookline’s Sarah Gladstone and 'Throw Back a Starfish' on May 20

Support Brookline’s Sarah Gladstone and 'Throw Back a Starfish' on May 20

Brookline High School Freshman, Sarah Gladstone, is more than a little amazing. We know Sarah because she is, so far, the youngest recipient ever of a BrooklineHub.com Youth Award. In 2012, she won the award; the only 8th grader to ever receive one. At the age of 12, she began raising money to save young woman in Africa who are around the same age as herself from a horrific fate; obstetric fistula.

 

“Upcycling,” Encaustic Art Just Some Of The Discoveries At This Year’s Open Studios In Brookline

It was a near-perfect weekend for the Brookline Open Studios this year. Sunday in particular was warm and sunny, bringing neighbors outdoors in shorts and cotton skirts to shop, eat brunch, and look at the work of local artists.

Brookline Artists Open Their Studios to the Public This Weekend

The Brookline Open Studios is this weekend, April 27 & 28, from noon until 6pm. This is a beloved annual event that I like to compare to children's trick-or-treating; instead of a bag of candy you come away with a new appreciation for the creativity of your neighbors, and, if you're in the market for original artwork, a new painting or framed photograph. It is arguably the most exciting event for local artists and art lovers alike.

Climate Week Returns to Brookline

Brookline Department of Public Health Announces Community Flu Clinic Schedule

Something For Everyone At Brookline Day

Larz Anderson Park is an idyllic, serene and elegant setting in the southern reaches of Brookline, where ponds with spurting fountains mingle with sloping plains and the odd antique auto museum in a classic American carriage house. On Sunday, September 23, the estate-turned-public-greenspace was home to the first annual Brookline Day—a family-friendly extravaganza complete with food trucks, live band and kids’ bounce-house alley.

Brookline Park(ing) Day Marked for the Second Year

From 8 a.m. this morning till 5 in the evening, a group of organizations including the Brookline Department of Public Works, Divisions of Transportation and Parks and Open Space, put on the 2nd annual Brookline Park(ing) Day.
